Not very impressed with this one. Of all the beers I’ve had at this brewery, this one is at the bottom of the Harrell.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is a clear golden color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light body with a mildly hoppy character that has floral and grassy notes. Some malt in the background. The finish is short and hoppy. Pretty average offering from Southern Tier overall.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale urine gold with a thin fizzy white head that turned to a soapy film by the first sip and left a spot or two for lace. Skunky aroma. Not good. The flavor is harsh grainy malt which morphs into some moderate hops bitterness. Light bodied. Overall, a pretty crappy beer not worth the effort.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Meh...a pretty average pilsener, not as good as our European counterparts. Aroma was heavy and lager like with hints of straw and must. Pour was a nice light clear gold with a thin white film for a head. Taste was OK. It was nice and light with sweet grains and just a hint of hop bite in the aftertaste. A little sticky on the cheeks and top of the mouth. The big problem with this beer is the lack of good carbonation. Some nice bubbles would bring this beer over the 3.0 mark for me. Decent beer, but that’s it

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pils glass.
3.0 A: Clear light yellow color. Just one finger of frothy white head that fell quickly and left no lacing.
4.0 S: Biscuity and grainy malts. Super clean. Dank, floral hoppiness with grassiness right behind. Simple, yet seductive.
4.0 T: Grainy first, biscuity second. Soft bitterness, earthy and grassy hop flavor. Pilseners aren’t the height of complexity, but this is a clean, tasty one.
4.0 M: Light body. Crisp and refreshing. My only complaint is that the carbonation is a bit too high.
4.0 D: Super clean and tasty. What more could you want in the style? This would be a good choice for a party.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had this last weekend. I don’t remember anything too specific about it. It wasn’t that great. It definitely reminded me of a decent American microbrewery trying to do a true Euro pilsner. American breweries can’t do good pilsners-- although Stoudt’s comes close. Too hoppy, and a little thick at the end. Needs to be fluffier, foamier, and light at the finish.
