2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of DMS and green chiles. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
More like a sweet golden ale, which for all I know it might be. Quite vegetal. Drain pour.

Grumbler purchase from Breeze-IN, Juneau AK.
Welcome to Juneau, Silver Gulch.
This was poured into a flared pilsener glass.
The appearance was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing stuck thin around the glass.
The smell started off somewhat grassy and grainy with an ample amount of sweet corn and then a light sweet bread.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine mainly sweet and somewhat grassy.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a smooth capability of gracing my tongue adequately. This was definitely sessionable.
Overall, for a pilsener this was pretty good and I would recommend to pilsener lovers.

This is dull gold, with a slightly sulphury pale malt character, and off-dry finish. Ok but unrefined pils.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear golden coloured body with a very light glow and a thin and very fast-dying white head. Aroma of metal, light malt, grass, cardboard and a touch of alcohol. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic notes at first then fade to a malty note with some grassy hops, a herbal flavour and a touch of alcohol at the tail end. Aftertaste shows metal, light hops, alcohol and a good herbal and grassy dryness. Overall, much better than most pils, with some actual hops used, a drying note and a good balance of flavours, albeit with a little metal and alcohol noticeable too. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega on 26-June-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 17-July-2011.
