2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden colored beer, lasting frothy white head. Aroma is very grainy with a small amount of hop spicyness coming through. Flavor is very buttery, almost like a buttered piece of bread. Not my bag but one I try to get my macro drinking friends and fam to try in a never ending attempt to convert them to craft beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. brown bottle. A clear golden beer with a small head that fades quickly. The aroma is peppery and lightly hoppy. The taste is grainy and it fizzles on your tongue. A boring beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: snifter. pale yellow color. solid white head. nice lacing and good to mild retention.
S: some hay. some sweet breakfast corn malts. nice bittering hop aroma.
T: Tastes like rich corn malts mostly. Better flavors than a macro lager, but pretty close to it.
M: smooth and crisp. very mellow mouthfeel. carbonation was a little high.
D: very drinkable and a very fine summer beer. not a huge fan of pilseners but this one is rather nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pilsner glass it formed a thick white head that deflated leaving little lacing. color is pale, typical of a pilsner. aroma is grassy and mild. It has a slight bite and is mildly bitter and dry. Nothing overpowers the flavor but nothing excels.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2010 Nothing to it. Bland and doesn’t stand out in any way. Not that I’m a big fan of the style anyway, but this doesn’t improve the situation

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Average. I taste cardboard. Feels like an oily stick of butter in my mouth. I am glad I am sharing this lovely beer with Thirdeye11.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(12oz bottle dated 06-07-10) clear golden pour with a long lasting white frothy head. Noseof plastic, sugar, and sweet cereal grain. Taste of old stale grain, sweet cracker, wet cardboard, strangely there is alcohol too, butter and earthy. Apples linger on the palate, creamy body and watery.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a nice golden color with a moderate white head on it.
S: Sweet malt and grain on the nose with a touch of butter and skunk. A light breadiness and not too much in the way of hops.
T: Somewhat bready and primarily sweet in terms of the flavor. The hops aren’t very pronounced, unfortunately, and there is not much to really cover up the butter and skunk.
M: Light to medium bodied, as one might expect from a a pilsner. The carbonation is medium as well.
D: Not nearly as bad as the Fancy Lawnmower, but not all that good either. I suppose if it was ice cold you might be able to put a few of these away.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grassy hop aroma backed by sweet malt, pours golden yellow with a hint of amber, minimal white head. Light bodied, medium sweetness light-med bitterness, active carbonation make this a heat beater, but nothing more, disappointed in the Saint on this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle. Nose is yeasty and dank; there’s some serious wet plant action going on. Pours a clear yellow with minimal head. Has good hops bitterness and a slight citrus spritzy nature to it; finishes clean. A good session beer for Texas summer.
