2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle, thanks Legion242! Pale yellow beer, slightly hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is quite citrusy, lemon, spicy hops, a touch of diacetyl as well. Flavour shows nice malt/hop balance, moderate bitterness, and prominent spicy hops. The diacetyl is quite distracting though. Bready finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a largish, foamy white head covering a clear, hay colored body. Suprisingly good retention and lacing. Aroma is fruity and citrusy (grapefruit) with some hay. Slightly bitter, but mostly bland taste. Watery mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to LeopoldStoch for this one. Pours pale gold with 1-finger white head. Nice clean appearance that is appropriate for a pils. The aroma is pale malt, spicy black peppery lemongrassy hopcitrus. The flavor is pale malty, with a black pepper hoppiness and mid-palate citrus. Smooth, crisp palate that is on the light side. Still, this is a fine summer pils, one that I would gladly quaff any time.

a sim rate: (on tap at Flying Saucer in Houston, TX) Nice flavour. Almost fruity - malty. Smells a bit like sweaty fingers. Slightly soapy flavour. Nice sweet aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured hazy pale golden with a dense, sticky white head. The aroma picked up bread and honey sweetness, with accents of grass and lemon zest.. a little dank on the back of the nose.. not bad. The flavor found similar malts at the core, with honey leading.. dry and grainy on the edges, with dusty lemon and a touch of related sourness.. too much sugarage to really be refreshing.. just OK. Light-bodied, dry, and grainy on the palate, with prickly carbonation and other sourness on the edges.. decent feel and flow.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Cavie and poured into a footed pils glass. Pours fizzy clear pale yellow like a macro and smells about like one as well. Aroma is grainy malt, sweet corn, fruity apples, and a touch of hop. The flavor delivers decently, though, with big fresh pils malt flavor, a sweet middle, and a nice balancing dry finish. Mouthfeel is light and high carbonation so it goes down smoooooooth, baby.
