3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(500 ml bottle: $2.69 at Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA) Best before 28-Jul-06. Another crystal clear beer from this brewery, the Pils is pale straw in color with a few scattered carbonation bubbles rising through the beer. The tall, snow-white head is bubbly and rocky. Citrusy and hoppy aromas dominate the nose. Light-bodied but very clean and crisp on the palate, with very lightly bready malts and a fairly sharp, lemony and spicy hop bite that is the obvious centerpiece of this pils. Unfortunately, as the beer warms up a bit the beer seems to lose a little of its crispness. Nevertheless, I still think this is a pretty nice pils all around, especially in how the solidly-retentive head leaves plenty of randomly-shaped bits of lace in loose rings all down the glass. Quite a satisfying pils, but I’d say drink it fairly cold on a hot day for maximum enjoyment.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very light yellow straw colored beer with a nice white head. Low aroma - some malt and hops, but not much of anything. Nice malt (slightly sweet) flavor with lots of floral, spicey hops. Medium bodied leaving a bit of a bready note.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A light yellow beer with a nice white head. The aroma is sour hoppy - it might be what is described on the bottle as the finest hops - that I don’t like. The flavor is sweet and dry malty with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.
