3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was surprised by this beer. Iím not a pilsner guy, but this was highly recommended. From the tap. Pours golden with a dry hopped (cascade?) nose. Thin mouthfeel. Starts like a pilsner, finishes like an IPA, with a hoppy finish that is uncharacteristic of a pilsner but is necessary because of the ABV. I really enjoyed this brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. On close out at Party Source for $5.50 or so. Poured into a jar-type pint glass. Mildly hazy, mostly clear orange amber color. Good thin, kind of rocky half-finger off-white head, with good retention. Medium-bigger body. Kind of crisp, light to moderate strength carbonation, a bit of a sharp texture to it, though. More dry finish. Kind of a bigger citrusy hoppy aroma to it. Pretty spicy. Some caramel malt, some orange creme, and some wet cold noodle flavor. Not bad overall, aside from the bit of papery oxidization... More noticeable in this pilsner than in the black version I had last week. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Pretty dry. Bitter like an IPA/DIPA, tastes like 70+ IBU. Solid stuff to slip on slowly, but the age is showing a bit here, considering how hoppy this seems to be... Black version is drinking much better at the moment. Iím surprised at how assertive this one is... A little rough to drink on itís own, but very nice to wash my sandwich down with. When paired with the sandwich, hides the 8.8% ABV pretty well.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with nice white head. Aroma is clean, slight hay, spicy hops, ethanol, faint juniper-like undertone. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice easy bitterness in the following and CO2 bite in the finish mixed with ethanol. Overall this is a fantastic pils.

Ceramic swingtop 750 ml bottle poured into a footed pilsener glass. Pours a bright, hazy copper with a big, fluffy white head of foam. Pretty good retention. The aroma has notes of candied grapefruit peel and pine. Taste has a thicker pine bitterness that moves to a juicy, lemon citrus sweetness. The alcohol is a touch noticeable toward the finish. Light to medium body. Low to medium carbonation.
