4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp clean grassy biscuity pilsener. Effervescent, extremely drinkable, thirst-quenching even. The sometimes brilliant side of Smuttynose shows up again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer just met my expectations.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy pale lager looking thing. Slight metallic aroma without any skunkiness in there. Taste is a little sharp with the associated pilser bite. Alky presentation is not bad overall. Few manners but none can be acquired. Skummy pond scum for a head. Finish is acceptable for a sharp pilsner style beer.

Aroma and flavor is grains and light citrus and a dry finish. Among the closer to the source German Pils I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 First off, that is not how you spell wunderbar. It is how you pronounce it but not how you spell it. I find this profoundly irritating for some reason and am subtracting one point from overall impression. Don?t like it, give me a buzz at 1-800-DONT-CALL. In any case, this is a continental European style lager for lack of a more specific term. It is supposedly a Pilsener according to RateBeer as of October 2013 but I think it falls more in the category of a Dortmunder w/ its lighter bitterness and more floral hop character while not quite having the big malt character of a helles. It is a good beer though so it will still get a high score from me despite penalties.

12oz bottle (best by 10/24/2013 ABV 5.2% per bottle)- pours cloudy pale yellow with white head. Nose is hay, grass and citrus. A little bitter and refreshing. Latent bread qualities. Funderbar? more like underbar or as they say it in Henderson County, Kentucky: Bunderbar.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Moderate grain and hay for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of pepper and cardboard. Head is average size, fizzy/frothy, white with fair lacing and is fully lasting. Color is hazy, yet sparkling pale yellow. Flavor is moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation. Pilseners are supposed to be light but the flavor is a little bland and the palate is weak in this one.
