3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decided to give this a shot, since I love the noble pils - hazy gold with a quickly diminishing head - nose is quite sweet, honey, apple, pear - some light mineral notes underneath, as well as lightly peppery hops - soft carbonation, creamy texture - flavor is very sweet up front, like apples and honey - a moderqt acidity cuts through the middle and lasts through the finish - some chalkiness and a moderately bitter, grassy hop note on the end - a bit of lemon - messy, but not completely unenjoyable.

Had this one at dinner the other night. Served in a pint glass.
A - Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small webs of lace down the glass.
S - Smells of pale malts, citric fruit, grassy hops and some light breadiness.
T - Starts off with a bit of chewy grain quickly giving way to hints of grassy hops and juicy citric fruit. Finish is a mix of chewiness and dulled hop bitterness, not lingering for very long.
M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Juicy, chewy feel that lingers on the pallet for a short period of time.
O - Not too bad. It really helped to knock down some of the heat from my wings. I would have no problem drinking a few of these once warmer weather comes around.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 12oz bottle from supermarket. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, lemon and citrus all over, yeast, and goodness. Flavor is similar with a fair amount of goodness. Lemon and sweet malt dominate with some yeast spritzed in as well. A nice lager, two words I did not expect to put together. This beer keeps getting better; I will be sorry when it’s gone!

Bottle from craft outlet. Eh it’s ok. It’s a bit like summer ale, but milder. A bit of honey, hop, greass and lemon. Some bread and spice. Refreshing.
