3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Picked this up on a create your own 6 pack. Not the right time for this. I bet its a lot better in the summer. Poured a light yellow color with a very small white head that was gone in seconds. Aroma was bread, malts, and faint hops. Flavor was clean and crisp. Grass, hay, and bread. Finish was very mild hops. Thin body. And smooth finish. Again, not a fall to winter beer, but still decent to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A solid pils. A Bohemian Pils could use some more hops, but this is good anyway. Lager yeast in the aroma, with moderate hops. Full pilsner flavor, dry and grassy. Gold color. Good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly cloudy golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is weak, but some bread, grain, and a little hops. Flavor is a bit thin and watery. Some hops are detectable. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Disappointing brew that doesn’t live up to its labeling; the softness and maltiness that ought be present just aren’t, but the bracing West Coast hops certainly are (Bealeton)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy yellow gold, frothy white head. Aroma of grains, light sweet fruit, some floral hops. Taste is very mild with some grainy bitterness all the way through the finish. Very crisp overall and not bad, just lacking something. Very mineral tasting on the finish also

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Red Hook Rope Swing is a very lively, semi-clear light golden beer with a thin, dense white head that fades to a film and leaves excellent lacing on the glass. It has a grainy aroma with a little lemon. It smells like a Pilsner. It’s quite light bodied and smooth with a very crisp finish. It has a good amount of Pilsner malt taste. There’s something melanoidal that reminds me of a doppelbock and seems a little out of place. I can taste a little lemon and there’s not really any bitterness. It seems like a watered down dopplebock. It wasn’t really a good choice for a lawn-mowing beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, pale golden color. Aroma of dough, citrus and grass. Very clean smelling. Flavor is spicy and citrus with a light grain taste. Not a Pilsener fan, but this is pretty good. Perhaps because it is a Bohemian Pilsener instead of the standard Pilsener. I will have to try more of this type.
