8/14/12 notes: draft, JAX. Pour is golden, small head. Aroma is fresh, doughy. Flavor is clean, zip from hops, soft bready finish with very mild bitterness. Well crafted but not particularly memorable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at The Falling Rock in Denver, CO. Pours a crystal clear, deeper gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready pils malts with a light lemon floral. A light honey sweetness as well. Flavor is similar. Bready pils malts with some honey sweetness and a light floral note. Finishes dry and clean with maybe a hint of grass before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderately fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty simple and unexciting pilsner with some honey sweetened pils malts and a light floral hopping. Eh...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Falling Rock. Clear deep yellow with a white head. Aroma of toasted grain, biscuit, lemon with a hint of grass. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Clean, crisp. Just enough bitterness in the finish to balance the sweet, toasted grain on the front end. A mild beer for sure and not as flavorful as a Noble Pils, but a nice drinker.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. filtered clear sparkling yellow, white head. mild saaz hop nose, exceptionally clean, letting the aromatic hops and light honey/biscuit malt sweetness play. quaffable and refreshing with a mild toasted malt character. sugar is low, acid is nonexistent, hop bitterness is mild for the style but pleasant. appears somewhat neutral and transparent when consumed along with or after something more bold and flavorful, but nice nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at a bar in downtown Golden, CO. A pleasant surprise in Coors Country. I realize that Barmen is a Coors product but it is actually a good beer. The bartender told us it is "unfermented and takes 8-10 minutes to pour." I doubt the unfermented part but she was right about the long pour. Chances are she could have sped it up but it was actually worth the wait. Golden straw color with a super thick white head that could have been mistaken for whipped egg whites. Decent nose for a pilsner, faint bitter hop fragrance. The taste was crisp and had a strong presence of bitter Euro hops. Mouthfeel was somewhat slippery. This was a really big, bold pilsner if there is such a thing. A little more malt and it would have been easy to mistake this for a pale ale or ESB. Good beer!

Tap at brewpub, Coors Field.
Pours a watery cloudy yellow with an aroma of corn flakes and malt. Flavor is corn mash and corn flakes. Watery mouthfeel. Hey, at least the Rockies won, beating the Cards 4-3.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I took a scenic drive through the foothills today, and decided to stop off in Golden for lunch - this beer was served at a local pub, and I was told it was a Coors product, which I guess it pretty much is - served in a Barmen pils glass - first of all, the beer was beautiful - clear gold, effervescent carbonation, thick, frothy, lasting head, that billowed up out of the glass - grassy noble hops in the nose, with notes of toasted grains, mild malt sweetness, light minerals - very clean and refreshing - mild bready character, but otherwise clean and crisp - some spicy noble hops on the back end - a hint of lemon - this is definitely a german pils, not a bohemian one, but I guess I’m splitting hairs - why can’t Coors make more stuff like this?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Falling Rock served in a Barmen pils logoed glass. Golden color with a short white head as expected. Smells earthy which is what I always seem to get from pilseners, minerals. Tastes like a muddy pilsener which as odd as it sounds was quite refreshing and easy to knock back.
Serving type: on-tap
