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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp golden coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall white head. Aroma of fresh malt, light metal, a bit of sugars and a hint of dry grass. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent malt shows some depth with a hint of sweetness, a little yeast and a good dry hay character. Aftertaste shows a touch more sugars, a hint of bitterness from the malt and a little dry finish - nice. Overall, a nice beer, very refreshing with still strong hits of malt. Definitely worth trying if you can find it and it’s hot outside - a respectable beer! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Elisir Restaurant in Washington on 17-August-2012 for US$7.

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.

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.

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.
