1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
This is an okay pilsener. It would be a good session beer if it was just a little bit more interesting. Watery with a grassy aroma.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on tap at Ferguson brewpub. It poured a clear, light golden color with moderate white foam and a little lace. Typical, true-to-style pilsener. Light adjuncts, but not flawed. Nice noble hop aroma and tangy bitter balance to the grainy malt sweetness. Overall, a good clean, crisp lager. Better by far than Bud/Miller/Coors fare.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma of pilsner malts and lager esters, maybe a hint of skunk. Light bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of pilsener malts with a mild herbal bitterness. Not overly sweet and definitely has the german character, but lacks some depth on the finish. Not bad though, definitely a step above the macro commericial examples of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured by the man Ray Hill himself at TWCP Beerfest 2011. Pours a clear, rich golden amber color with a small off-white head- Ray said true pilsners were allowed to be between 2 and 6 on the color scale and this was a 6 (speaking of which, why is this listed as a Pale Lager?). Nice aroma of sweet and pale malts, grassy hops, straw, crackers, and corn flakes. The flavor is a little more muted than the nose but offers up the same slate of notes. Light-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dry finish. Pretty nice pils, and a little unconventional.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from a sampler. Pours a nice golden color with a small head that fades. Has a clean grain aroma with a hint of sweetness. A bit malty with a nice sweetness and a clean finish. Fairly light body that is crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable and a good year round brew.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours pale yellow with white head, aroma has a touch of grass, biscuit, corn, grain. Taste is some bitter grass, bread and cereal, leading into sweet corn and slightly dry finish. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle- Pours a nice golden color with a small head that fades to some light lacing. Has a clean grain aroma with a hint of sweetness. A bit malty with a nice sweetness and a clean finish. Fairly light body that is crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable, better than most BBQ-summer type of beers. A good year round brew. Reminds me of a nice German pils.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Bigelo’s Bistro in Edwardsville, IL. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium fizzy white head that evaporates to a film rather quickly. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Mildly spiced hops aroma. Light body with flavors of grainy malt, corn and mild hops. The finish is sweet malt with a short lightly spiced hops aftertaste. Forgettable, barely average Pils overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent for the American version of a pilsner. 12 oz. bottle to footed pilsner. Pours honey golden with thin white head. Nice aromas of malt and grass. Not much on the front, but back has nice hop brief bite. Kinda thin, but no more than expected. No doubt a session beer.
