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.
Serving type: bottle

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle from Rising Tide) Pale straw color, clear. Off-white head. Aroma is a bit of bread, a bit of corn?!, a bit metallic. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth but a bit prickly, fairly crisp and dry. Flavor is weakly bready and weak grain, appearing very much at first like a pale lager. Somewhat redeemed by some hoppier presence near the finish, esp. as it warms. Finish also has a touch of licorice. Forgettable.
