4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve really liked this brewery, and I am very excited to see a craft pilsner offered for sale in my local supermarket.
Appearance is very, very nice. The head was so big I had to wait to pour in the last third of the can, and it lasted quite a while, leaving lots of sticky lacing.
Aroma is also very nice, great spiciness and hop aromas, along with the grains and grasses you expect from German pilsners.
The taste doesn’t disappoint either. You could almost pull it off as a pale ale if you served it in a white can with no label, it’s that hoppy. And the spiciness from the hops really accents the grains and grassy flavors perfectly. There’s somewhat of a citrusy flavor in the background too, offering a nice complexity to a delicious beer.
Body is perfectly pils, light and well carbonated (but not over-carbonated).
Awesome job again, RABC. Definitely I will be buying this one a lot in the coming months, as I assume that brewer’s cut altbier will run out sooner or later!
As always, support your local breweries, especially when they’re this good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Very pale straw, slight haze, lively carbonation, thin frothy white head, little lacing.   Grassy nose, minor sweetness, a touch of hay/straw.   Soft sweet grassiness up front, yet still remains a little dry
and musty, barnish, with dried grassy notes on the backside.   Fairly crisp, clean, with a soft straw/hay dried grass like finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes dry, sweetness was all up front.   Lingering
straw/hay notes.   Each drink actually makes you want to drink a bit more... yeah, it seems drier than most.   Very clean tho.   Well crafted Pils.   Thanks Bill!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very bright, clear, golden straw pour. Big white head with a lot of carbonation. Classic lager aroma with a bit of additional hop earthiness. Very bready aroma. A lot of complex flavor for a beer so light. The malty breadiness is the biggest component of the flavor. Mild earthiness from hops. Finishes pretty dry and bitter.

Can. Clear golden pour with medium (quickly dissipating) white head. Nose is faint noble hop aroma, strong pilsener malt, no DMS, crisp, straw. Flavor is straw, faint noble hop, clean lager taste, with a pleasantly dry, bitter finish. Delicious summer beer, excellent interpretation of the style!

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale yellow with thick white head. This beer was served on tap following a half-marathon. It was hot and I had just run 13.1 miles. The beer was ice cold and free and on tap. This should have been one of the best beers of my life. The first sip was very nice but quickly went south from there. Too hoppy, too light, too flavorless. So far the only thing Real Ale makes that I enjoy is the Black Quad.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
clean, dry with just the touch of sulfur I expect in a fine pilsner. Some floral/noble hops and just a touch of malt.

Good looking! Nice light amber color with stable white head. Nose is citrusy and complex with a lingering fruit note. Nice mouthfeel. Clean malts quickly overrun by A clean noble hop bitterness, little bigger hop profile than expected but still awesome. Hint of malt pops up on the end too.
