2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice beer, but ’way out there’ on the aroma hopping!
Pours a nice golden color, with about 1 finger of foam that held up well.
Smell, clean heavy aroma of noble hops over take. Nice hoppy smell but over whelming for the style.
Taste, traditional pilsner taste, clean and crisp maybe a little sweeter than I might have expected. The aroma hops take over very quickly, and over power the beer.
Mouthfeel and drinkability are good. Well made beer, and easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Lighthouse. It pours a brilliantly clear golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is very bready/malty with light notes of noble hops. The flavor has stronger noble hops, a full body with fat pale malts and a spicy, strong bitterness in the finish. Good stuff. Could be a bit more aromatic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[on tap at Local 50, PHI airport]
Aroma of hay and fresh, sweet and spicy noble Saaz hops. Clear straw under a persistent white cover and lace. Slightly lagery sulfur together with dry pilsner malt, spicy hops, and an assertive bitterness. Balance is a bit too far towards bitter. Medium-light body, moderate-medium carbonation, lingering bitterness.

Bottle. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a lasting foamy off-white head. Light but solid pils. Nice dry grassy finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp flavor, hint of grain but nice malt profile. Hops work well and are to style. Fresh and familiar.

Another pilsener without much good saaz hops. Pours golden with good head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness. Smells nice. Some sweetness here. Watery texture. On tap at DC Summerfest.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy straw yellow with a soapy white head that hangs out and laces robustly. Aroma is wheat and grass. Taste is crisp grains and noble hops with a bit of lemon and honey. A very good pilsner that balanced sweetness with some finishing bitterness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Comes out as crystal clear, very light yellow with a giant and dense white head. Crisp but barely-there aroma, Deutsche hops with hints of white wine. Similarly weak flavor, a little sweet and a little hoppy. An intense lingering spiciness is probably the highlight of this beer, other than the really well-balanced mouthfeel. There’s a ton of excellent German-style lagers coming out, this is decent but can’t roll with a lot that you can find these days.

Hoppy and fruity. Balanced. A beer like this makes me want to purchase cases again. In PA, that is a full commitment to make.
