3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Mostly clear golden hue, with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. Clear grassy and hay hoppiness with some minerals as well as slight breadiness in the aroma. Same hay and lemony hops in the flavor and a light bready sweetness. Though a light body, it’s a bit heavier for the style. Not bad at all, especially in this heat.

Nice pilsner over all. A little sweeter maltier than others I’ve had. An above average baseball beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
slightly hazy gold with a foamy white head. sticky medium body with medium-high carbonation.
aroma: pilsner malt, noble hops, slightly metallic minerality.
taste: hop bitterness, noble hop spiciness (tomato plant or green pepper plant), sour minerality, crusty pilsner malt.
nice overall, but lacks the soft subtlety and floral hop character of a great pilsner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: Draft. Hazy gold pour. Light grain on the tongue with little to no hop presence as far as flavor is concerned. There is a light back bitterness. It seems to lack both the noble hops and crispness I normally associate with the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Meridian Pint for $2 on their 2nd anniversary. Pours light cloudy token with small white foam. Nose is sweet apple juice and sugar. Taste is quite hoppy, resinous, oily, sugary. Fairly rich. Some soapy hop bitterness and heavy floral pollen and lavender. Palate is rich, biscuity. Pretty good stuff. Palate is a bit powdery and apple skin astringent. Not too bad.
