2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Many thanks for my lovely wife to noticing íTotal Tap Takeoverí at Tap and Mallet tonight. Man there were some good looking beers present. This one was served in a tall glass, not up to the standards of the finer euro-pilz. Gold colored, small German hop taste, bland.

This poured a bright clear yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of sweeter malt,, light corn and very light dusty stale hops, Flavor was a bit cloying for a pils, and too weet, some astringency too barely balanced with light salty hops.

Growler from Village Beer Merchant. Terrribly named, this was a great summer beer and kept its carbonation overnight, excellent drinakbility I was able to finish 80% of it myself and it went well with a weekend of meals. Generous retained head, a nice moderate bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel. Really good for what it is.

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a bright golden color with a small white head that faded quickly but left decent lacing. The aroma was light crisp grassy and floral hops. The flavor was dryish and tangy with crisp grassy and floral hops. Medium length finish. Light body. Eh.

Draught at the Empty Pint at the Southern Tier brewery. Pours a golden colour with not a whole lot of head nor lace. Aroma is grainy, but not all that powerful. Taste was a little grainy as well. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A blonde pils with a thin white head. A rather vegetable beanie malt aroma. In mouth, a run of the mill eurotrash lager, equaling the quality of german or polish crap. Boring. On tap at J. Ryans, August 29, 2010.

draft at Coles. Buffalo, NY. Light golden pour. Not saaz dominated like a lot of the Euro pilsners ive encountered. Decent , i assume, noble family of hops aroma. taste was hops upfront followed by a strange "offness" that is hard to describe. I prefered Sam Adams attempt

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler, shared with tupalev, from Consumerís Beverages on Elmwood in Buffalo. Clear oily-looking gold with an average white head. Odd aroma - some off-putting cooked vegetable up-front, plenty of fresh oily cereal grain behind that, with funky, slightly sour floral bitterness balancing - "Goldings"ish; a bit of drying alcohol on the nose too. The taste is very solid - starts pretty normal - sunflower oil upfront with funky herbal UK-type herbal bitterness - but it smooths out wonderfully and hits a terrific grain/funky floral balance that sits just right (7+). Pretty thick-bodied, chewy and a little acidic from the hops - lightly carbonated only, but that seemed appropriate seeing as we were splitting half a gallon of it two ways ... a nice bit of a journey from it, too - malt-forward, with a gentle build to the dry, funky hop bitterness, no alcohol aggressiveness at all, and a decently long finish too - dare I say it, very sessionable? We really dug it more by the end than our first impressions.
