3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 5.2% indicated on bottle.
A: Pours a lightly hazy straw color and a two fingers high white head. Its retention is good for the style, settling at one finger, and leaves spotty lacing on the glass. Even better is its creamy, frothy texture.
S: There are some nice zesty, grassy, even mildly sulphury hops here. Behind that lies a bit of cracker-like malt and even some sweetness. Typical but likable.
T: At first, I pick up touches of mild grassy hops, and later on the finish. Sandwiched between the two is a vaguely sweet malt backbone and even some citrusy qualities. Though the flavor profile doesn’t stick out, it’s certainly a well made and enjoyable version of the style. I could use even more hoppiness, though.
M: The dry finish helps balance its sweetness some, and is generally very easy to drink. I’d also call the carbonation level ’spot on’.
O: A solid pilsner. Hops could be more pronounced, but otherwise there’s little to complain about other than the lack of uniqueness - which isn’t a big deal, either.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Bready, grainy, slight grassy, floral aromas. Refreshing, bread, malty, slight noble hop flavors. Pretty nice pilsener.

Pleasant surprise here. Didn't know what I was gunna get but I like it. Aroma has a faint Oktoberfest German smell and it is incredibly smooth. Nice pilsner taste on the backend

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Mildly hazy straw colored body with a creamy white head.
Aroma: Mild with a touch of noble hops and mild malts. Slight perfume aromas.
Taste: Crisp with a mild bitterness, clean body and a short finish.
Palate: Crisp and light leaning.
Overall: This isn’t a bad pils, but it’s middle of the road. If someone handed this to me I’d be okay with it, but I would be disappointed if I bought it.

A delicious pilsener. Aroma was nice. Sweet grain, pilsner malt and hints of fresh cut grass. Pour was a nice clear light gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was good. A little subdued but good. The grains and pilsener malt are nice. Just a light hoppiness. Less than I would like for a pils, but not bad. Less carbonation than I like for the style, but a good beer nonetheles

Tap pour. Clean straw color with white grad. Great lacing all the way down. Lemon, dough and grassy hops on nose. Some mild skunk. Fun interplay between a heathy amount of pale malts and the bitter effect of the dry hopping. Good, ready drinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Miles, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours straw with a white head. Aroma is light hints of grass, bready malts, some German hops. This is a very mellow pilsner. Not too much in the way of bitterness, but plenty in malt complexity. The beer shines especially in terms of drinkability and subtlety. Not overstated, but excellently balanced. Quite nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pale yellow gold color. Big fluffy white head. Pleasant light grain nose has hints of grass and citrus hops. Dry malt flavor is light in body and depth. Tasty, yet lacking. Could use a bit more maltiness. Finish is dry and lemony.
