1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
[10/7/13] Draught at Delirium Hoppy Loft in Brussels. Hazy pale yellow. Aroma is a bit grainy, a bit buttery, with faint grassy and citric hints. Sweetish flavor, buttery, with a bit of graininess and faint bitterness. Pretty watery. Not so good, this chit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells and tastes like Key Lime Pie. And I mean that in a good way. Pours out a hazy light-straw with green hints color, unlike any color I have ever seen in a lager. Rogue grows its own barley, malts it itself, and grows its own hops. Some may like it and some may not, but one thing is for sure, this is a unique new world pilsner.

Looks like a lager, taste more like a lager, too, but as such, I would like it. Smells lightly fruity and malty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Hoppy Loft.
Dorée paille, épais blanc.
Arôme est très agréable, houblonné frais, rappelant le fauchage avec des notes vertes. Le tout conserve une certaine profondeur de grains.
Palais est malté, carapils dans un style munich pâle avec un citronné modéré. L’amertume est bien placée, le tout reste très désaltérant.
Cette bière reste légère, sans être trop complexe mais franchement bien brassée.

On tap at Hoppy Loft. Gold body with thin yellow head. Nose is corny, hoppy. Taste of hops, fruits, spices. Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks light a light lager with a small but durable head.
The aroma and flavor reflect a delicate, rather light pilsner. Nicely clean and refreshing. Longer lasting hop finish than expected. Light body but not watery. A little dry in the finish.

Draft at Rogue Hop Farms in Independence, OR on 1 June 2013.
Poured a hazy light golden colour with a thin halo of white head. Aroma of grain, floral hops and bread. Light malt flavour, some astringency in the pine hop bitterness. Finished with biscuity malt and grassy hops.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden color with light white head. The aroma is light with some hay, grass and some citrus. The taste was lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Very smooth, clean and light the status quo pilsner but nothing very unique about it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured a 22oz bottle into a pilsner glass. There was no freshness date. I got this at #BBC13.
Appearance: A slightly hazy body with a pale/white gold hue. Plenty of carbonation consistently visible. Forms an average sized, bright white, fluffy head which laces and retains quite well.
Smell: Standard all-malt pilsner aroma. A hint of lemon, some hay.
Taste: Rogue recently started growing their own ingredients for a line of beers bearing the "Chatoe Rogue" or "Rogue Farms" label. While this is certainly commendable, simply providing their own ingredients doesn’t necessarily equal a better-tasting beer. The "Good Chit Pilsner" is evidence of this as it tastes and drinks like any other good, solid, all-malt pilsner - just with a higher price tag.
A lightly pale malt flavor throughout, with the classic bottom-fermenting yeast presence. I do notice a bit of spicy hops at the crest of the swig and a subtle lemon flavor on the finish, which is nice, but nothing worth raving about. These tastes actually linger on the tongue a bit, though it’s a tolerable, almost pleasurable sensation. I’d take this over an adjunct lager any day, but I’d need more taste and memorable characteristics for me to rave about it.
Drinkability: If there’s one thing to give "Good Chit Pilsner" credit for, it’s the fact it’s extremely drinker-friendly. The mild, clean palette is delivered via a thin, crisp mouthfeel that’s actually quite refreshing. At 5.2% ABV it’s got a little more weight and body than your average fizzy yellow lager, but is still light enough that it can be appreciated by drinkers of all calibers.

650 ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a four inch head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, grass, straw and hops. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a dry and bitter finish. Good and enjoyable.
