3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle. Hazy gold with a lasting white head. Aroma is a bit stinky and grassy with a touch of green apple and peach. grassy and slightly bitter flavor with a dry, bready pale malt base. Finishes with lingering grassy bitterness. Seemed a little harsh on the palate at first, like a little too much tannin or acid, but I got used to it. Continental blond ale? Almost lagerish, really. Not bad but not worth the same price as a bottle of Pliny or Pig.

Poured from a bottle by campfire. Great frothy head, not huge but long-lasting. God lacing, creamy, tart citrus, pepper flavor in the back of the throat.

Thanks again daysinthewake.
Pours a lovely hazed copper with a solid quilt of soapy light yellow foam. Smells of plenty of resiny and grapefruity hops with a slight lagered, english malt background. Taste is more malty than I had anticipated and the hops are present, albeit reserved with a very crisp and easy feel. The malt seems slightly oxidized, which would be better complimented with a few more late hop additions. Medium bodied with liberal carb and a slightly slick finish. I like this beer overall, although I don’t think it meets the usual standards of the RR lexicon of beers. I would drink this with a simple meal like barley soup.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle dated 08302013.
Aroma has a nice, sweet, pilsner graininess to it. Very faint esters and sulfur, no diacetyl or hop aroma.
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a moderately thick white head that recedes somewhat quickly but leaves behind moderately large amounts of lacing. No legs.
Flavor is full of sweet pilsner malt flavor. Moderate bitterness but light spicy hop flavor. Light fruit esters and very faint diacetyl. Slight sulfur note in the finish. Some lingering bitterness notes in the finish as well as some spicy hop notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light to light bodied with moderate carbonation; very crisp, dry finish. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a nice fresh flavorful pilsner. At almost 2 months old the beer still tastes young with a nice assertive bitterness that helps accentuate the dry finish. I like it but the bitterness is probably a bit strong for the style.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a white head. Fruity, citrus, bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing. Pilsner is not a style that I typically like but this is well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alla spina al brewpub. Discreta Pils che non convicne fino in fondo. Aroma di malto, cereale, grano, erbaceo, speziato. Al palato scorre via veloce con un sapore di cereale e un finale secco erbaceo ma non molto lungo e pulito

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured two fingers of head on a clear, medium straw colored body. It looks great.
The aroma has a good dry grain smell with some honey.
The taste is moderate grapefruit bitterness throughout. There’s a sweet note towards the end, but the finish is a bitter bite.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An excellent beer.
