3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kinda yellow and fizzy looking though this does have a nicely retained egg white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with notes of hay and straw. There is a malt base in the background. Flavor is decent. Definite lemon, some light hop bitterness with just a dash of malt biscuit flavor in the background. Pretty tasty on a hot Texas summer day.

Pretty good pils. Light hop aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet and finishes lightly bitter. Appearance is yellow/fizzy. The is no head retention and no lacing. Pretty refreshing for hot Texas days.

Pale-ish yellow. Moderately carbonated appearance but a semi-fizzy palate (i.e. more mouthfeel than it first appears). Lots of lemon/citrus flavors, nice, moderately sweet. Decent overall. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brilliantly clear, pale/straw color with big white head. Aroma is of crisp malt and Saaz hops. Flavor is clean and crisp, if a bit dry. The malt does come through in the middle and the hops are present as well. Despite how this beer has been rated by others, I thought it was a good effort at a pilsner. Kind of a hopped up all-malt Budweiser.

Bright yellow wirh no head at all. Aroma....well theres none that I could tell anyway. Taste of light sugar cane. This is perhaps the simplest beer you will ever come across just bad man, real bad. Save yourself time and money and just drink water!!

I'm one of those dumbass Texans that thinks Bigfoot is a summer beer. When it gets TOO HOT then it's time to shut down. This is really a fairly decent beer, easy to drink, harmless, not bad, blahdiddyblahdiddyblah. I will stick to other fare and await the day that the Elissa comes my way.

A very dry Pilsener. Like everything this brewery brews you always get a very dry after palate taste. Smells like almost nothing. Giant foamy head. Looks ok...very clear...not golden simply clear and yellow. Smells like zero. Tastes like a really good american pale lager...but not a very good pilsener. I’ve had much better...like the Live Oak Pilz. On the forefront it is sort of bitter...can taste the Saaz hops but they fade quickly into a very dry yeast that overcomes everything else. It’s ok If you want a step up from Budweiser.

Just another sulphury pils. If you like Schlitz, Pabst, Coors, or Miller, you’ll love this stuff. (Although this is a tad heavier.)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear yellow with medium sized white head, diminishes quickly. Highly carbonated. Aroma is pretty typical pilsener variety with more floral citrus tones. Flavor is sweeter than expected, which is the only thing that makes it seem different from large-scale brewery pilseners. Decent, but nothing to brag about. Cool label -- Now I know where those wild tie-dyed Team Saint Arnold cycling jerseys originated.

I tasted some of the new batch for '04 at the brewery. A pretty good beer as I recall, although not tasting exactly like a pilsener. Possibly a little too much hops for a pilsener.
