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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is very hoppy and malty both of which are european in style with a hint of american hops. The appearance is golden with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth but not thick. Overall quite well done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. It pours clear golden with a nice white head. The aroma is full of lemony hop oils and a grainy background. The flavor is again lemony with more citrus peel and a crisp malt. The finish is bitter and a tad floral. Pretty light bodied. This is barely an imperial pils... some regular pilsners are at this strength. The real difference here is the citrusy American hops. I like it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m not a fan of Pilsners but this is pretty good. A lot of flavor. There doesn’t seem to anything Imperial about it to me. Sweet, hoppy and a little oily. Pilsners are skunky to me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, bottled 6/16/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, bread, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, straw, cracker, and light earth. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance. Taste of lemon zest, bread, pepper, pine, herbal, floral, grass, light grapefruit, cracker, and light earth. Light bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pepper, bread, pine, herbal, grass, and light earth on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of hop flavors; with a nice malt backbone as well. No cloying flavors at all; very clean and fairly dry. Medium carbonation and body; with a crisp and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn good Pilsner. Nice flavor balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Really enjoyed this.
