This beer feels like a light beer in its texture and weight. Refreshing brew for the thirsty punter, but lacking the strength needed for sippy savoring.

Ugh, this is gross. I wonder if it’s flawed. This tastes like a dusty cardboard box. No.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Mildly hazy yellow color. Thin white head. Good lace. Nice, smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Clean finish. Like so many Shorts brews, this is very quaffable. Easy to drink and refreshing. Nice hop profile, kind of grassy, light citrus peel, little pepper. Good bready pilsnery malt base. Mild bitter taste, but a solid amount of sweet, too... Love it. My kind of pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Straw colored, very hazy, moderate white frothy head, nice lacing. Strong straw/hay on the nose, sweet, a little dry... Almost too strong in its grassiness. Really really husky and chewy. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Not your lighter crisp example, this one is chewy, very strong straw/hay, and a bit drier than others. Different, and interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 3/13/12 and poured 9/29/12
Appearance: A murky yellow color with a thin head that leaves surprisingly decent lacing.
Smell: A very light hop aroma... maybe even a bit of wheat-like smells as well.
Taste/feel: As expected, mild. Drinks a lot like a light beer. The biggest thing about this beer that I don’t care for is that instant it hits the tongue. It feels like carbonated water, and that’s really it. But once the taste comes out, it’s not too bad. There’s a decent bit of hops and even some spices in there. A very mild aroma and taste, but that’s what’s expected with this style. It gets better as you get to the bottom of the glass, but still a pretty ordinary beer -- would make a GREAT beer for Summer.

21st April 2012
Very hazy gold beer, good white head. Crispy palate, semi dry. A little seltzer minerals before decent yellow grapefruit hops. Whisper of peach and tropical fruits. Crispy finish. A fine Pilsener and if there were more like this I would drink them more often!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from my buddy Steve. Nice vibrant pour, pale gold and well carbonated. Nose of mild fruit, traces of corn, and very understated hops. Mouthfeel is nicely lively, slightly peppery feeling on the palate, with an only modestly dry finish. Brighter and more fruity than a lot of the pilsners out there, and there’s a sustained ripeness owing to the pronounced grain and corn in there. Nothing comes across as overly chewy or artificial; tastes too fresh for that. But it’s just not quite the flavor profile I crave when I crack a pils.
