3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle, produced first week of December 2007. Golden amber colour with a mostly lasting frothy and creamy white head. Light and crisp toasty malt, spicy, floral, and orangey aroma. Honey and toasty malt flavours met with a pleasant moderate spicy bitter finish. Medium bodied, quaffable – maybe a bit too quaffable, as it is gone way too fast. This is good, but comes across a bit too ale-like – almost as though they simply brewed the pale ale with Saaz hops instead of English. If this were a replacement for the Honey Wheat, well done Propeller. If it was a winter seasonal that was going to mean no return of the Revolution Imperial Stout (a rumour at the time of my sampling that thankfully has been put to rest), I’d have been pissed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to geth_in_beer for this one. Bright amber-gold beer with a large white head. Fairly fatty malt aroma with a bit of honey and light dustiness. A bit of floral/noble hop aroma. Thinnish body with a nice flinty bitterness. It’s not a great example, but it’s decent. Needs a whole lot more hops to be a true BoPils.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Yellow color, small white head. Mild carbonation. Good pilsner aroma with a hint of sulfur and, as mentioned before, mild toasty malt. Flavor is good with hints of bitter, grassy hops. Light to medium mouthfeel. Will drink more.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 From bottle. Sweet, honey aroma. Typical aroma from Propeller beers really. Clear golden appearance with a thin clinging head. Little to sweet for my palette and not what I expect from a Pilsner. Would like a bit more bite. Slight finish of hops. Overall a thirst quencher and I could easily drink a few of these on a hot day but Its not hot, its bloody freezing.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought at the brewery December/07. Thought I’d see if they could make a pilsner that would become a thirst-quencher staple to replace the usual mega-beers. Didn’t really want to like it, but did. Pours a golden-amber, not much carbonation, minimal head that dissipates into mild lacing. Aroma is very subtle; mild toasty/grassy notes. Very light, clean, but balanced flavor. Slightly bitter, slightly hoppy, not sweet despite what the label claims (that’s not a bad thing). Very quaffable; could easily consume mass quantities!. This will become my summertime fridge-filler. Another solid effort by Propeller.
