4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
At the tap house, Beautiful light gold color with a bountiful white head, aromas of light malt and noble hop are abundant. This reminds me of Augustiner Pils when I drank it in Munich last year, a remarkable example of the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, crisp clear orange yellow with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of crisp and dry lemon peel, spice, cracker and buttered bread, but not in a diacetyl way, some nice honey, grass and floral notes come in as well. Taste is a nice mix of spicy grass and earthy hops, some dry cracker malts, some hints of honey and vanilla, finish very dry, spicy and refreshing. Very well crafted.

Growler. Deep gold pour beautiful white head. Smell is slightly alcoholic, sweet biscuit, noble hops. Flavor is hop forward but with a big bready malt prescence. Surely one of the finest US examples.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2012 [Original rate 4.3 - my initial opinion has diminished just a slight bit - later samples have proven to be a bit too hoppy for a German pils - sometimes a little overly bitter, but it is still the tastiest lager in town] Pour is a clear, lively gold with a frothy, pillowy head - nose is truly lovely - fresh, grassy, floral hops, a moderate mineral/limestone note, a very light sweetness - medium soft carbonation - a touch of sweetness up front, but the malt is mostly firm, dry and crisp - medium to high grassy and peppery hop flavor and bitterns complimented by a nice mineral bite on the end - clean, snappy finish - nothing much else to say except that it is a damn fine German pils and the best lager made in Colorado.

Tap @ Prost. Pours a clear golden appearance with a foamy white head. Fairly herbal, straw/grassy, somewhat floral aroma. Crisp straw grainy, floral/grassy, clean, a touch spicy, bready flavor with a somewhat spicy aftertaste. Pretty clean taste and a nice pils.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark yellow that has a slight haze and a nice fluffed white head. Sweet hay nose with that bit of sulphur that makes me smile. Straight forward flavor of light honey and a small bite of clean bitter at the end. Just a bit of copper and honey linger. A very good beer after a few hours of urban hiking in the summer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is bright golden with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Light grass, corn, biscuit, light weed, and bread in the aroma. Taste is cereal, biscuit, fruity, light banana, grass, and grain with a light, crisp bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Clean and smooth; easy to drink and little-to-no off-flavors. Very refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 Pint at Falling Rock. As expected, this is pretty similar to their keller pils. A bouquet of cereal, grass, wood and dough are in the nose. The palate is spritzy and light. I’d say this is a notch maltier than the keller pils, making it less dry and more balanced overall. As whole, the beer is pretty subdued but still has good, crisp, clean flavor. It doesn’t excite me as much as a hoppier Czech or American pils, but it is still quite tasty and will be a constant go to when I want a lighter beer.

Six pack from Mr. B’s. I have to say that I’ve been enjoying the bottles a little more this go around. The head retention is ridiculously long lasting. The hoppiness is constant, spicy and woody. Malts provide a little cracker/dough foundation. This is impeccably clean and well balanced. Super easy to drink and highly enjoyable.

pours bright yellow with a nice lacing and soapy white head. Nose is spicy with some grassy notes and lite grains. Flavors are very grainy lite spice and grass. Not as hoppy as I woukd like but still very solid. Long grainy finish with lite dryness. Perfect for the style.
