3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
6 pack for 2 bucks. I’m not a huge pilsner fan, but Smuttynose makes great beers, so what the hell? Pours a hazy yellow color with a huge white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smells and tastes more like your standard summer beer; grassy, wheat, slightly hoppy, very crisp. Body, carbonation are both average. Texture is slightly slick. Overall this is a decent pilsner. Not amazing but very easily drinkable and crisp. My bottle says 5.2% ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Really old ass bottle (best by 3/17/13) thanks to dmac! Pours a hazy light straw color with a finger and a half of foamy white head. Aroma of grain, lemon Lysol, and lager yeast. Fizzy carbonation. Taste of light citrus, lemon peel, sweet grain, grass, earthy hop bitterness, and yeast. This bottle was 8 months past its prime and was still pretty decent.

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.

Sample at 1808 American Bistro. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates gradually. Spotty lacing. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

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.
