3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler, pours with a slight haze golden straw yellow with white head. Aroma is a nice classic hallertau character, floral grassy with hint of pepper, some wet grain and corn shine through. Flavors continue with a firm grassy and pepper profile, sweet grain and corn lay the malt backbone, crisp and snapping finish. Really clean easy drinking pils. It could use a little higher ibus for me but otherwise this is right on style and tastes great.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap and served to a 10 oz. footed glass during the Grampfenpils Tapping at RB Yorktown, displaying a clear, bright golden color, with a decent amount of white, creamy head foam, and waves & spots of lacing. The aroma was a light but typical scent of Pils malt, huskiness, and light maize. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, the flavor added some noble spiciness, and moderate but lingering, earthy, rind-like bitterness that complemented so much better than that of the Grobvater Pils. Crisp, clean, and pleasantly dry finishing. A very nice progression of the style!
