3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA.
The beer is transparent and bright golden with a half inch of pure white head. Aromas of grain, earthy hops, malt. Pale malts and grain. Decent flavor, but could be cleaner tasting / feeling. Some nice aromas and tastes, but basically, a middle of the road pilsner. This was ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into pilsner glass. Pours a medium gold color with 1 finger white head. Leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is a little biscuit and a touch of citrus. Taste is crisp and clean, lightly bitter. Going down very easy with Chinese food.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a hazy golden with an average white head. Aroma is a decent pils malt with sweetness in there. Flavor again starts out with the pils malt but then kinda gets syrupy. Finish is dry and cracker malty. Would have gotten a better review if not for that secondary thick syrupiness.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the bottle came a hazy yellow brew with a thin white head. Aromas of malt were all I could detect from the chilled glass. Strong malt flavors up front with hops hanging onto the back of my tounge. Body was heavier than i expected but very nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with little head. Sour hop aroma like a good pils plus a bit of malt. Sweetness prominent in flavor. A little watery.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle.
It pours a sightly more amberish god than a typical pils. The head is nice, white, and fluffy and leaves some nice lacing.
The smell is pretty good. Nice noble hops, bready malt, slight metal.
The flavor isn’t as great. It has a nice noble hop profile, almost perfect for the style, a bit overconcentrated but not too much, but it lacks malt depth and complexity and the yeast profile isn’t as clean as I would like. The aftertaste is muddy and lacks the clean zip of a good pils.
A good pilsener considering it was brewed in the US.
