3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It had a nice clear golden blonde body with a frothy white head that had nice retention and some mild lace. Aroma had a good biscuit malt aroma upfront mixed with some mild grass hops. Really simple and really well balanced. Flavor had a good malt presence. Mostly biscuits, but a slight sweetness helped it. Hops were mostly floral, but there was a mild peppery note to it just enough to give the beer the right amount of bite. Smooth and easy to drink with a nice crisp finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Red’s. Poured a clear gold color. The head was two fingers high and white. It reduced over a few minutes to a thin lasting film and left a decent amount of lace on the side of the glass. Smelled of corn, hay, and subdued grassy hop. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet. Minimal bitterness emerged after the finish. Pale malt and noble hop flavors.

Haven’t had a pilsner in a long time, so it looks a bit pale; straw colored. Some grass and bread malt aroma, and a slight hops aroma. I can’t pick out anything else. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold with strong carbonation. Aromas are of wet stones, grassy noble hops, and a bit of white bread dough. Pleanty grassy in the mouth, along with more minerals and some soft pilsner malt notes. Gets a bit more herbal on the finish, with some lasting bitterness. Medium bodied. Could have a bit more hop aroma, but this is actually pretty good. Definitely one of the better pilsners I’ve had recently.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale straw colour with a finger of white head. Aroma is grass, lemons, vegetables. Medium bodied pilsner with lively carbonation. Flavour is grassy with some lemon and ginger. Pretty good hop presence for a pilsner. Finish is tart with spicy hops. There’s something unsettling in the finish that didn’t sit well with me.
