3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold pour with fluffy white head. Citrus and earthy hop aroma. Crisp malt, earthy hop taste. Light and flavorful, almost like a kolsch. I think this is suppose to be a winter seasonal, but I would like to see it in the summer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Tampa Airport between flights. Deep golden pour, bright white head, nice lace. Nose is hop spice, lemony, slightly hebal. Flavor is fresh lemon, hop spice, lightly malty. Finish is well balanced hop bitterness, spicy rather than resiny or piney as would be desired in an ale. Refreshing and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle as part of the Brewmasters Select Variety Pack. Pours a bright golden with a bubbly white head that leaves delicate lace. The aroma is fantastic: elderflower, ripe tropical fruit, light honey. Layers of nuanced hops bathe the palate, elderflower and papya and mango initially, followed by tart gooseberry and citrus pith bitterness. The malts play a perfect supporting role without being too sweet. This is the best pilsener I’ve had in a long time.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2010 Pours a clear, golden yellow with a slew of carbonation bubbles racing toward a soft, frothy head. Nice lacing. The aroma has a lot of grassy citrus, spice, and some doughy malt. The flavor is a little bit sweet, but has a nice bitter finish, with some cereal and biscuit malt. Nice flavor. Well done.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Standard stuff. The aroma is bready, malty, spicy. The appearance is a gold color, crystal clear, white head. The flavor is bready, spicy. The finish is certainly bitter from hops, nobel hops specifically, and is somewhat spicy as well. Medium body. Decent for what it is.
