Rising carbonation bubbles in a medium yellow body, with soapy head. Good dirty blonde yeasty aroma.Citrus taste, good IBu, smooth, dry finish. I liked it as only a minority of saaz, despite fresh assertive carbonation,

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice golden with a big white head and good CO2 release. Aroma of floral hops, bready malts and slight cheese. Taste is a nice mix of hops and blanced with cereal malts. Slightly salty. Smooth on the palate, easy to drink and good finish. Pretty good overall but not "Imperial."

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the sampler. Probably my favorite of the four. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head. Nice grainy, malty aroma with notes of grassy hops. Lightly sweet but balanced with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, light fizzy mouthfeel. Quite good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/30/12
Aroma: The aroma has some bread, pilsner malts, fruity/lemony notes, and a little grass
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a small white head and light lacing
Flavor: This one has a nice, clean malty flavor, and it is nicely balanced between sweet and bitter
Palate: Light-medium bodied, and has a really nice feel this is smooth, crisp, and clean, with a nice tingle
This one easily hits the mark for a quality Pilsner. The mouthfeel is up there with any of the best examples of the style, the nose is subtle, but works quite well, and the flavor is right on target. It is also extremely drinkable. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.
