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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Cloudy sunflower-yellow with a pillowy head of white. Aroma is pear, pink peppercorn, subtle banana. The flavor begins sweet, with similar pear and banana notes, followed by a little wheat, crackers and spicy peppercorns in a dry finish. High CO2, the light body keeps things snappy and refreshing. Lingering peppery bitterness.

A blonde body with a very thick white head. High level of carbonation present. Aroma was of corn, bread and yeast. Some fruity esters were apparent. Flavor was slightly bitter at first. Malts seemed to have a mix of corn and whole wheat bread. Light on the palate.

Yellow and white pour from can. Fruit, grains, wheat, weed, pine, spice. Seems like a pretty good concept but it didn’t come together in a way I have come to expect from Stillwater. Forgettable.
