3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color with a thick, fluffy white head, that disapates rather quickly but leaves a stcky lace behind.
Aroma was grassy, maybe a little citrus.
Flavor was light and crisp. a light bitter finish.
It was 110 degrees here today, and this was a very refreshing beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden-straw body with mild carbonation and a clean, sudsy white head. Aroma is nutty, citrusy and buttery. Flavor is grassy with a lightly bitter finish. Fizzy but crisp and about as refreshing as a beer can get. Good summer beer, as billed. This may be the perfect gateway beer for stubborn BMC fans.

An average lager from this great brewery. Beer combined with the word summer normally are a piece of shit, but this one is, however, a pleasant lager.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold color with a moderate head, fair lacing and a nice grassy hoppy aroma. Medium bodied and dry with faint citrus and yeasty notes, and a good hoppy bitterness in the finish. I thought this one had a certain European flair to it, more so than most American pils I’ve tried anyway. First class.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
light lagar style beer, well presented and very fresh and clear looking. Decent hop aroma and some good bite towards the end of the taste. A very drinkable brew, much like Henry’s Private Reserve.

Bottle 2004: Ok nose. Lemon, sourdough, grass. Lite golden yellow color. Good head that disappeared quick. Sweet, crisp, bitter flavor. Lemon, Toasted grains come to mind. Smooth, sour bitter finish. Very tasty. Now if more lagers were like this...

Nice foamy white head head with a golden body. Very crisp with a citrus sweetness and a bit of a hop bite in there. An enjoyable refreshing beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden yellow. Nice head sticks around for some time. Light aroma of Saaz and honey. Taste is dry and zingy, with hop bitterness and Saaz apparent with light malt. Lagering is apparent and the character is crisp and tasty. Quite a nice Pils but with less malt than the Czecs.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
very light flavor, was expecting more. TASTES MORE LIKE A DOMESTIC LIGHT BEER THE A MICROBREW SUMMER. the as advertised tangy hoppy bite is not there.

pours a deep-ish gold color with a nice white head that descends to a 1/4" that lasts the entire glass. very aromatic of saaz hops, with backing aroma of lightly tasted malt. flavor a nice interplay of malt and hop notes. finishes sry, smooth and crisp. rate it for what it is.
