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.

At Stephen’s 2nd annual Great American Beer Festival Tasting on 10/1/14. Pours gold with some bubbles. Aroma is nice soft hops, delicate pils malt, so drinkable. Taste is awesome dry, soft pils malt and nice fruity mosaic-like hop notes. I would love to session this.

Bottle. Fresh hoppy aroma tropical fruit, mango and lemons. Smells great and nice light body with a dry finish. This goes down very easy, I wish it came in a bigger bottle. There is something to be said about having a beer with high drinkability.

session pale ale may be the closest. this is the kind of beer that keeps me appreciating subtlety, as much as i love big beers. at first the aroma seemed uninspired, but the nutty, slightly floral, slightly sweet taste above the light and refreshing body was nice right away. and a couple degrees later, the aroma followed suit. it’s a very light, but very interesting beer. i appreciate what they were going for and will get it again if it becomes more readily available."

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Don’t think I would classify 2o14’s as a pilsner, and I like that. More like a hoppy session ipa. Supreme nose, appropriately bitter and a small.dose of mAlt. Very good indeed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, courtesy of Felipe. Thanks man! Pour is clear golden with a big white head and sticky lacing. Lemony, orange peel, grapefruit, grassy, biscuit, light straw, floral, and dough aroma. Taste is lemony, orange peel, light grapefruit, grass, straw, light weed, and minerals with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Solid beer, although I don’t know how much of a pilsener it is.

I really enjoyed this on an early Fall evening. Light and refreshing hop profile. Lovely scent, fronthy head on the pour. Light brown color.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange with a foam that doesn’t last, but is attractive none the less. This is listed as a Pilsener however, it is definitely not your typical lagert. Russian River calls it a session ale. Smells, tastes, and finishes closer to an IPA. Citrus, hay, and mild bitterness. Finishes well too. There is NO wine in this beer.

They should've tried making wine, then. Does have a beautiful appearance, though.

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.
