3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
There are some hops in this fairly clear light-colored beer: floral, piney notes in the nose. Sweetness and bitterness in perfect balance on the tongue and a subtle remembrance of the piney notes when it's gone. Being a good red-blooded American and Texan, it tastes close to what I imagine would be the platonic ideal of beer: balanced, drinkable, indeed, quaffable in large proportions. It tastes good without being too complex. A fine beer if not particularly compelling. A bit too hoppy to enjoy straight from the bottle.

Bottle: It poured a clear gold with a white head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was malty and the flavor matched.

Bottle at home. Aroma is grass and citrus, some hay. Flavor is mainly citrus hops, slightly bitter notes, grass, some light biscuity malts. Overall, this is quite a well balanced brew and an enjoyable pilsener.

A great Pilsener. Light and hoppy, nice clean tart fruit. Crisp and clean. No off flavors. Drink it fresh. Got this in a sampler pack but would get a 6íer in the summer if I could find them.

I just donít get it. I donít enjoy a single thing about this beer and itís lauded as one of the best Sam Adams has to produce. Oh well. Okay, fine. I enjoy the colors on the label (no I donít).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tons of bubbles rocket up through a pale orange-yellow beer, perfectly clear, topped with a nice, clingy head of white foam. Very, very nice. Grassy hops rule the nose, balanced by a light breadiness and a noticeable sour yeast character. The flavor has all the character of pilsners Iíve had in Germany: bright citrus hops dance around with some notes of sweet light lemon and pineapple. I even get a little taste of sticky icky weed which adds to the beer and works great with the other flavors. Surprisingly full-bodied, with lively pepper bubbles. Silky body. This is one killer pilsner.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel and honey malt, sweet with faded lightly grassy hops. Taste similar to aroma, no yeast and lacking crispness. Seems more like a pale ale, I remember really liking this and thinking it was an outstanding Pils. I donít know if this was bad bottle, bottle indicates far from best by date, or they changed the recipe.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2015 Savory biscuit with subtle spice, lemon and raw onion. Very crisp and clean. A nice representation of the style.

35.5cl bottle from Systembolaget. Best before 2014-12-01. Golden colour with a medium big white foamy head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is fruity with notes of hops, honey, pine and bread. Some spice and grass. Flavour is a tad rough, yet with some sweet notes. Grass, honey, herbal, spices. Not much hops. Some bitterness after a short while. Bit short aftertaste. Overall a suprisingly good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear yellow/gold color with a larger white head that lasted. The aroma and flavor had pilsner malt, grassy hops, herbal notes, lemon citrus, straw, and pale malts. Light bodied, easy drinking beer. For what it is, not too bad, I am not a fan of the style though.
