3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a can, and a cool can at that. The NJ crew had been recommending this one for a while. I finally bought one of these at the Foodery in Philly. Pours straw golden, with lots of carbonation and a soft white head. Mild lacing. Very pronounced aroma of spicy hops, lemon, and grass. Flavor of european pale malts, grain, with hints of lemon. Crisp and spicy bitter finish, that has some dry grassiness that lingers. A pretty hoppy pils, perhaps overdone. Good, but not as good as Victory Prima Pils.

I’m surprised this is so well rated by everyone on the site. so maybe the batch I had at the beerfest was tainted. def. worth a try yourself and I’ll probably give it another go another time.
served at the NYC Brewtopiafest and inspired a very goofy scary picture of a fanged fox in the woods. my friends did not like this very much. when I discussed with them how I would rate it overall out of 20 my friend Wendy said it smelled and tasted like armpits and therefore I should rate it "armpits out of 20". I don’t know about the armpits, but I agree this is not a great beer. my only guess is that it is really yeasty and to an inexperienced beer drinker, this may come off smelling and tasting unpleasantly and "off". other than the yeast this pours a thin, grimy straw yellow body with a minimal white head. not carbonated enough. too watered down of a palate. aroma is sweet, light hops and grain. tastes of light, citrus hops, bready yeast, grain, pine and lemon. I think we’ll say the yeast flavors are not well balanced and leave it at that.

Pale yellow product with a tiny bit of hops in both aroma and flavor. Fairly lacking in flavor.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A slightly hazy yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of citrus, but also light notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet and rather hoppy with light citrusy notes and a rather dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Arg0’s Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad:
Pale yellow, white head and nice lacing. Nose of crispy light hops, earthy. The flavor is nicely malty, clean and grassy, thin mouthfeel and overall good. Nice pilsner with a nice hoppy character, much more on tone with a lagered IPA or something.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can courtesy of Dickinsonbeer. Poured a pale effervescent golden with a large foamy /frothy white head. Really nice aroma of grassy noble hops, lemony citrus, some light honey. Flavor is light and dry, with some grassy hops, a bit of biscuit dough, toffee, and some lime, leading to a surprisingly long bitter finish. Body is light and lively carbonated. Very nice pils.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very large bright white head of big fluffy bubbles. Quite sloppy once it reduces. Light carbonation. Light corn and malt aroma. Some herbal hop notes. Little oregano. Color is a medium hazy gold. Clean crisp flavor more herbs and spices. Little bitterness from the hops. Some biscuity malts for body. Finish is dry and pasty. Little bitterness. Pretty good for a pilsner.
