3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer Camp sampler bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear copper color with a large foamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy hops and soft malts exhibiting a creamy note almost reminiscent of oatmeal. Some bready and nutty notes also. The taste is bread, apples, herbal hop finish. Medium bodied. A little bit different, but solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear, brilliant golden with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up crusty bread and lemon zest, with accents of fresh grassy and herbal hoppage.. fresh and well-balanced. The flavor found more bready malts at the core, with crisp lemon zest, fruity, and floral accents.. picked up some honey on the finish, along with residual grassy and fruity bitterness.. tasty and very drinkable. Lighter-bodied, but with enough carbonation to keep it engaged.. tangy, crisp, and well-balanced.. really good brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium yellow with high carbonation and a decent almost creamy head. Big resinous aromas of fruity/herbal hops. Like hop perfume. Its harder to find but theres just a little bit of caramel and grain malt coming through, but the hops really overpower. Flavors of those herbal hops to a lesser degree than aromas, and the grain malts show through the finish a little more for a decent balance. Crisp, lightly bitter, and does not leave much of an aftertaste. The aromas really caught me for a surprise! Interesting and a good pilsner.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Interesting beer. Pours a clear gold with medium white head, Definitely not a standard pilsner. Sweet aroma, and more malty than most pilsners, with herb-like hops. Odd finish. Not sure if I like it or not.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, 2012 Beer Camp Variety Pack, purchased at Whole Foods Milwaukee. Aroma is Malty, cereal, some pine hops. Medium to heavy on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, crisp, malty, bread, toffee maybe, pine hops, with a light bitter finish. A tasty pilsner. The heavy body stands out for me.

Not typically a fan of this style, but this is good stuff. Pours straw yellow with small head. Hay aroma. Very easy drinking, clean, slightly bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 OBF. Light sweetness with a hoppy kick at the end. A bit thin in the middle but still a solid brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear vivid straw color with a minimal head that fizzes out instantly. Aromas are bright grassy, bready notes with a good whiff of tart fruit as well. On the palate its quite drinkable. Nice bready notes roll into a tart apple fruit mid palate that gets doused in nice bitter grassy hops to finish it off.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from mix pack. This is kinda weird. I found it a little too sweet with not quite enough bready, crisp malts to be called a pils. Maybe a low abv, drinkable malt liquor is right.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ OBF... Poured pale amber with a white head. Good bitterness to balance the sweetness. Good drinking. Sort of like a low abv, hoppy malt liquor.
