4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’m assuming this is the base beer for Premium, as it resembles that beer quite a lot in several ways and has the same ABV, though it has American hops rather than Saaz so perhaps not. Beautiful yellow with a rising bubbly carbonation and sticky head. Aroma light lemony citrus character, hints of grassy hops, pils malt evident. Taste is lightly sweet, bitter finish, lemon rind character prevalent in the front, carbonation level not exactly where I’d like it but otherwise this beer hits all the right notes. Mega drinkable, great beer to buy a sixer of and drink in a session. Fascinating stuff, another great offering from Stillwater.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Light to moderate citrus and soft malt aroma. Medium body with a soft smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where not met and I hope this was a one off for this brewer.

A bright and light yellow with lots of bubbles. Aroma is potpourri and I get herbal notes and vanilla in the taste. Taste lingers pleasantly. Flowery as well.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy pale hay yellow with a thick and foamy eggshell head. Aroma is sweetness, bread, citrus, light spice, yeast. Light bodied, easy drinking. Flavor is light citrus, pepper, grain. Both aroma and flavor have some hefeweizen similarities, but with a distinct, crisp pilsner flavor. A nice lighter beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Looks light. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale malts, light corn/rice notes, and dough. Flavor the same with a nice amount of hops. Average to light texture. Not a bad beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. can. It pours a hazy yellow color with a nice white head that shrinks to a thin layer. The aroma is potent with salt and pepper, slight clove and bubblegum sweetness and dry, spicy, floral hops. Kind of smells like a hefe/saison hybrid. The flavor is super dry, spicy, crisp and refreshing. The citrusy hop bitterness in the finish melds nicely with the peppery spicy yeast. Very nice beer.
