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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer Camp 12pk-pours lite orange crystal clear with a small sprtizy white head. nose is lots of pale grains, spicy hops sulfer, but not as punchy as i would have liked. It seems like this beer was a bit old-like SN bottled it a few months ago for release now (saw this on their facebook page) it would have been alot better if it was fresh. however, the beer here is crisp clean, well balanced with some nice hops. long finish of leafy hops and pale grains with quite a bit of dryness. WIsh the finish was a bit better though. Decent beer from the BC however, could have been better fresher.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to pint (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks decent; a transparent gold with white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and slightly doughy and hoppy. Tastes like it smells with a crisp pilsner snap that’s pleasant on the palate. Nice.
