3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Open City, DC. Aroma of hay, cracker, light noble hops. Appearance is royal gold with a sticky, 1/3 inch white head, spot-on carbonation. Flavor matches the nose; crackery dry, light/moderate noble hops and a dry, slightly fruity finish. Palate is medium, bubbly and very soft. Very well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz Bottle. The Pilsener poured a clear polished gold with a small head. The nose detected some floral hops and sweet malt. The taste was floral hops with a spicy hop zest, and sweet malt. The pilsener had a medium body with above average carbonation. The finish is the pilsener’s best feature. There is spicy hops that linger in the roof of your mouth. The finish makes this one of the best pilsener I have had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold, topped with an inch of firm white foam. Aromas of fresh bread, lemograss and hay abound - very promising start. Taste is classic pilsner malt, grainy, lightly toasty, with a solid hop bite to give perfect pilsner balance. Wonderful drinkability, and definitely a class rendition of the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy gold with a tall, long lasting, sticky white head.
Spicy hop nose.
The flavor is quite subtle, there is a bit of sweetness and some hop dryness in the finish but overall it lacks the clean crisp hp bitterness and supportive malt base I like to find in good Pilsners.
