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.

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.

A typical pilsner. Gold color, good amount of carbonation etc. Typical pilsner aroma of bread and grass. A very mild hop bitterness. also a little sweet and tart. A decent pilsner

A well balanced pils of citrus hops, spices, I think peppercorns, toasted malt and barley. Sticky, sweet and bitter finish creates an impressive pilsner after the hop kick. Clean and enjoyable. Good session beer.

Good beer. Pours light yellow, with a white head that desolves quickly. Has a grassy and malty aroma. I tasted some grassy and citrus hops, not extremely hoppy with a slight malt balance. A light bodied beer with a slightly bitter finish. I will definitely have this beer again.

OK and easy drinking but not a lot going on here in terms of aroma. Pours golden with foamy initial head and no lacing. Light grainy and sour finish. Bottle from Chevy chase.

Rather intense grassy hop aroma for a pilesner, which is good. A bit hazy, goldoen color. Some bitterness. Quite okay.
