3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap slc 7/22/10.
pale pils yellow color with a white head.
pils nose... thankfully.... peppery, florals and some dustiness.
flavor is the same along with some yeastiness, lemony tartness, straw and a dry finish.... nothing wrong with it but it is way bland.
nice crisp dry mouth feel. 5/3/6/3/13/3.0

Some rich malt and hop personality on the nose. Fairly pale in colour and not as golden as expected. Taste: light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Not nearly as highly hopped as claimed - or at least it sure was hidden. I struggled to find depth of body and character past background noise and a touch of mint.

bottle, clear golden color with thin soapy foam, aroma is faint dry hops, flavor is good brisk minerally albeit a little too fruity for my taste but good pils nevertheless

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: poured into a snifter. pours a slightly hazy, dark yellow, almost golden color. A nice white head on top with a low retention rate and lacing.
S: sweet hay aroma, with a slight hoppy bitterness. Also a very intriguing honey aroma in the end.
T: very nice taste for a pilsner. nice honey tones along with some green grapes, which go really well with the light malt backdrop.
M: smooth and very clean. almost as clean as drinking water, which was interesting, because the flavor is there. good carbonation along with a light body.
D: very drinkable pilsner. not my favorite, but a very nice drinkable option for the hot summer heat.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a light yellow with a decent white head. Aroma of light grain, some dry grassy hopiness to go along, a bit of corn too. Taste is light and sweet, nothing off putting here, light grainy, bready taste with a bit of hops. Palate is very soft carbonation, I would have enjoyed something just a tad more lively. Not great, but still quite probably the best 4% lager I’ve had.

As compared to the mass brew stuff, this is a decent beer, but when you can get Victory Prima Pils, Blue Paddle, and a handful of other decent mico pilsners, why bother. Then again, I don’t live in Utah and maybe this is a good as it gets...

Got to try a bottle of this thanks to "Mr. Plumpy" and his mountain biking trip to UT. Colour... light straw with no head. Nose... well.... rather like uric acid! Do I really want to drink this...? Well... here goes.... Palate... whew...! Light ’n’ fluffy, a quick shot of hops with some bread dough, then, pfffft! Gone!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear golden-yellow color with a thin, wispy white head that left some light lacing. Aroma of straw, bread, some light doughy yeast, and soft grassy hops. Smooth, crisp entry with some cereal and light straw that transitions into a light graininess that finishes lightly bitter with some soft grassy hops. Moderate carbonation and crisp mouth feel. Overall, a solid pilsner, but it seemed to lack some of the finesse and nuance that make others so enjoyable.
