3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light golden with a thin white cap. German blonde malty aroma that’s clean and crisp. Flavor is the same, clean, crisp, German blonde malt, light grassiness throughout to balance. A bit crackery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
GABF 2013. Pours a clear golden appearance with a creamy white head. Weirdly corny, rich herbal, straw aroma. Grassy/herbal hoppy, chewy lightly toasted pils malty again with some corn notes. Sandlot has won numerous awards in the past, which is one of the reasons I sought them out at GABF but this one wasn’t a winner in my mind.

Lively clear gold - a very crisp, light, and easy drinking pils, with no discernable flaws - floral and grassy hops, moderate mineral bite, clean pils malt - dry finish, with medium bitterness - very well-executed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
GABF 2007. Looks amazing in the glass, big fluffy white head, clear beer with slow ascending bubbles. Crisp at first in the mouth, clean, with a wonderful dry Saaz finish. Smell is grassy and clean, very appetizing. Wonderful pilsener. Maybe they pulled out all the stops on the GABF batch, because I didn’t get any adjuncts at all in this. In my mind, this is what a pilsener is supposed to be.

Grainy, lightly spicy and grassy hop forward aroma. Clear golden body with a low white head that diminishes to ring.
