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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle in San Juan. Golden color, small white head. Cut grass, light sweet maltyness in the nose. Light to medium-bodied. Grassy German hops in the flavor, light maltyness. So and so but probably goes with food well.

Pretty bland and forgettable. Perhaps it was old stock, because it was at a suspiciously low price.

Crisp and refreshing beverage but with a somewhat funky herbal and spicy hop character dominating the otherwise rather mild flavor and aroma.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a amber color with a medium white head that left a lot of lacing around the glass. The aroma is floral hops, slight citrus, earthy, grassy, and some mild faint spice. The taste is more of the same and very well balanced. There is a very mild hop kick to round it out.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz brown bottle into a pilsner glass
A: Clear golden with a small head in the cold glass. Not much retention but great lacing. Not much visible carbonation.
S: Pine. Little else. Maybe a little cardboard malt trace.
T: Similar to the smell but pine not as dominant. Sour bread present to counter the piney herbal hop taste. Flavors meld very nicely. Pretty good balance and distinctive good taste.
M: Fairly thick or so it seems for a pils. Just enough carbonation to dance around the tongue.
Sticky and chewy and substantial. Maybe not as "sessionable" as you’d expect from a pilsner but so what? Very good!
O: Really good pilsner from Sam & Co. There’s stuff in there and quality stuff. One of the best I’ve had in the style. I drink this occasionally and will continue to purchase it.

Pilsener... I think of my granddad when I hear the word. Does it taste like an old man? No. The aroma is modest hops, some chalk and grass. The taste is light bread, malt and a touch of lemon. Maybe some minerals in there? Overall though, a good solid drinkable pils.
