3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced excellent lacing. Good moderate to heavy complex hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer and one of the best of style I have had.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy, floral hop aroma with resinous pine notes followed by light fruit and a pale malt backbone. Slightly spicy hop presence with straw and straw as well as some apple, bread and biscuit.
Medium bodied with a spicy hop bite up front that’s countered by light fruit sweetness, bready yeast and pale malts. Sweeter than expected with a slight metallic presence and a surprising boozy flavor. Some earthy bitterness but it’s cut mid palate by sweet fruit, biscuit, pilsnef malt and alcohol. Starts off okay but there’s a really unpleasant flavor lingering in the finish that I can’t quite put my finger on.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malt pilsner aroma with some hops. Clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing left on the glass. Smooth pilsner, with some hop flavor and a light sweet malt taste on the palate. Sessionable beer with not much detection in alcohol. A very nice take on the pilsner...I would highly recommend to others if seeking this style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear bright golden color with a substantial white head to top it off. Sweet flowery aroma. Clean crisp taste of sweet pale malt and a butteriness which balances really well with the mild hop bitterness and essence of grapefruit. A damned good pilsener all around!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour with ring of white head. Nose is sweet and bright hops. Flavor is sweet sticky hops. Not cloying, but close. Noble hops, but with a distinct citrus flare of west coast stuff too. pretty tasty, but not as ’punch you in the face’ hoppy as prima pils though.
