2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow with thick white head. Persistent carbonation. Aroma is sadly reminiscent of Budweiser. The flavor is biting. Hops are somewhat bitter without the malt balance for this style. I am normally a big fan of this brewer but this one falls far short. An excessive price point is unjustified for misused hops.

Bottle via Grand Cru beer and Cheese. Pours a hazy yellow with thin psychedelic bubble of foam on a mere mil of a head. Nose is grassy basement. My senses tingle. Body is pleasantly light and tinged with light hops with ....grassy meh. finish is non existent. Drooppy sparse lacing. Crickets, not oompah bands.

Bottle. Very bright n’ hazy pour, looking like an American wheat. Not much head. The aroma is down that lane to me, too. And it drinks with a little bit of gristy buzz, too, but there is a bit of a continental hoppy bite, too. Sessionable on a hot day. (#5253, 9/13/2013)

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy gold color with a tall white head. The nose has nice floral and grassy notes. Well balanced flavor wise with subtle malt and just enough bitterness from the grassy hops. Crisp finish. Nice brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of a neato trader. Thanks! Pours a fairly clear yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly dry pils grainy malty, noble floral hoppy, basic but good aroma. Just a bit sweet malty, lemon, vanilla, pils malty flavor that finishes moderately dry with some herbal/floral hoppy elements. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw yellow body with a one finger fizzy white head that fades to a thin film. The nose is lightly hoppy with a nice clean pale malt base. Very crisp and well lagered, by the smell of it. The flavor is also very clean and crisp as well. I like the light malt base, it allows the mild hoppiness to assert itself. Finishes with a minimal bitterness, a little watery maybe. Light bodied with fine prickly carbonation. Pretty nice Pilsener, though I could do with a bit higher hopping level.

12oz bottle In a cup. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of pale malts, some dough, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a good blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good pilsener.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden coloured body with an orange glow and a non-existant white head. Aroma of pale malt, hay, grass, herbs, metal and a hint of deep earth - interesting and strong. Light-bodied; Sharp grassy and herbal flavours dominate with a lot of hay and a touch of lemons with a hint of earth - fairly nice with dry and airy elements throughout. Aftertaste is well-rounded with some of the earthy malt, a hint of the lemons and a lot of dry, herbal, grassy characteristics that you’d expect from the style. Overall, a nice pils with more of a grassy and herbal note than most, but a good flavour profile while remaining very light-bodied - perfect for the heat of late summer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 13-July-2013 for US$2.25 sampled at home in Washington on 26-August-2013.
