3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. The pour yields a lightly hazy, medium golden colored body. From the base, a wide column of slowly cascading micro-bubble streams feed a small, smooth head of off-white foam. Jagged, tattered lines of lacing scar the glass. The nose is delectably fresh and crisp, showing notes of lightly toasted white bread, cracker, dry, softly-sweet dough, and a healthy balance of lightly peppery, floral hop character. Flavors are the mirror image, again centered in excellently balanced, yeasty, bready dough as the malt base, with dry, crisp, spicy floral hops as the bittering counterpoint. There’s a nice, grassy zestiness in there as well. The palate sports a medium-light body with a softly lively carbonation, drinking as clean and crisp as just about any American made pilsener that I can recall. This is an excellent session beer. I could easily drink a boot of this stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Served up a clear, yellow body with a finger-high cap of white suds and the standard laceworks on the way down.
Smell: Pils malt with a delicate graininess to it and hop scnets of sliced lemon, unidentified spices, and distant cut grasses.
Taste: Minimal sweetness from the pilsner malts. Slightly chalky, grainy dough character. Light lemon rind fruitiness. Grassy, spicy noble Hallertau hops with a good degree of complimentary bitterness. Lil’ squeak of acidity. Dry, grassy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A good, quality pils and a refreshing way to beat the heat here in miserable, muggy ole Georgia.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours yellow clear with a moderate amount of head. I thought these weren’t supposed to be unfiltered? This one certainly seemed crystal clear. Aroma of honey and mild hops, a little skunk too. Taste is smooth and crisp with a tiny amount of hops... I was hoping for a little bit more. A little skunk and some grass round it out. A very solid pilsner and worth drinking.

Hey, it looks like me and Adrian are the first 2 to rate this. Thanks, Adrian. Toasty, yeasty aroma. A dry, bready pilsner, that tickles the palate. Very nice, snappy brew.
