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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
GABF 09 at the Pro-Am Table and at the booth. Pours a clear bright golden with a medium lasting bright white head with cascading lace. Aroma is fresh doughy pils, with spicy floral hops, spicy saaz and a bit grassy but nice. Flavor is toasty and doughy pils malts, bready as hell, crisp and clean with nice fresh saaz spiciness- crisp and easy drinking- awesome as expected from Sandlot.

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.

Grainy, lightly spicy and grassy hop forward aroma. Clear golden body with a low white head that diminishes to ring. Grainy, strongly spicy flavour is overbalanced somewhat towards the hops with a moderately bitter character. Light body with strong, crisp carbonation. Sampled on tap at the Sandlot at Coors Field.
