3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated 3/21/13. 12 oz bottle poured into a Kostritzer pilsner glass.
A: Pours a golden straw color typical of the style. The head is a one finger white shade. It fades quickly, nor does it leave much lacing on the glass.
S: I really like how hoppy this one is. Tons of zesty, grassy noble hops bombard my nose with only a modicum of malt sweetness coming through.
T: The flavor doesn’t come across quite right; it seems to be heavy in both buttery and vegetal components. It has that green bell pepper quality I tend to dislike in some pilsners. Some sweetness builds on the midtaste which slightly wrecks the balance.
M: Not as crisp as I like in the style. It’s properly light, but the hops don’t really cleanse the sweetness particularly well.
O: Merely an average pilsner; the vegetal character really hurts it. Not bad, but there are much better lagers out there.

Pours clear light gold. Honey, citrus notes on the nose. Earthy, fruit flavors, suggestive of straw and lemon. Not a fan of pilsner in general, and this one was nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw colored beer with a thin white head that dissipates into a light surface film. Musky nose with a bit of sweetness and a lot of funk. Flavor is clean with a medium bitterness and not much more. Not sure why I picked this up as it is not one of my favorite styles and this provides nothing noteworthy. It does have decent body and an overall crispness I guess.

Tap at Craftsman Table & Tap. Pours light golden, clear as day, soapy white head. Good noble hop nose, bready, very floral. Mouthfeel borders on thin, but a lively carbonation enhances the biscuity malt profile. Very, very easy to quaff. Good effort.
