2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with many streams of carbonation and a thin white head. Aromas of grain, grass, crisp herbal and citrus hops. Flavor is kind of doughy with a little bit of lemon and grass (emphasis on grass), a little skunky hops and a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and light.

Distinct taste of lemon right up front - not at all objectionable. Traditional European pils taste hides subtly in the background. Couldn’t detect it at first for the lemony attack. Lacing is extraordinary for a pils, and the body is much more robust as well. Not a bad pilsener at all. Much more character than most I’ve tried. Very refreshing after a winter (its very springlike here in NM today) of heavy IPAs. Nice playoff football watching quaff, for sure.

Pils done right! Pours in golden with white head. Head retention a bit low. Nice hoppy nose, beer is well balanced and finishes with a nice bitter linger on your palate.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours clear golden color with two finger white head. Aroma is grainy with a touch of hop spice. Tingly mouthfeel. Flavor is light, refreshing, slightly grainy, a touch of hop spice leads to a really dry finish. Overall not bad, but not great either. Simply average.

Clear golden pour with fluffy white head and pretty nice sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet, malty, and a hint of hop bitterness. Some honey sweet flavor with a bit of bitterness on the end.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of Fratto. I traded him a Budweiser. Sucka...... Clear gold pour with a white foamy head. Slightly body odorish in smell but a large hop spiced aroma. Taste is bitter hop that morphs into a peanut protein flavor. Very dry on the finish with a wet spell on the back of the throat. Different but quite a bit of spice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours rich gold with a medium thick white head that lasts longer than you’d think it would. This is a boring beer. I suppose that I just don’t get it. Salty and fizzy. Hopped, but just a few minutes out in the light and this thing starts tasting skunked. This is nothing to rave about.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
( 12oz bottle) pours clear orange-yellow with nice lasting creamy head. Nose of earthy hops, honey and citrus. Taste is earth, unsweet honey, and lightly bitter hops. Finish is well carbonated, earthy, and creamy. Drinkable and pretty high on flavor but lacking sweetness. There is also an odd floral flavor and some fruity pebbles even.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear, medium gold with a large, very bright-white head. Head is slowly diminishing, lacing left behind like frothed egg whites. Aroma is at first grassy, but quickly replaced by sharp citrus and flowery honey. Further sniffs pick up light yeast and toasted bread. Moderately bitter flavor, increasingly bitter as you hold it in your mouth. Finish is mildly sweet, and here is where the dried straw, hay, and grasses really shine. Lingering aftertaste has notes of grapefruit and orange rind. Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, perfect for the style. Very well made, and I was happy to try this when it was noticeably fresh.
