3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks the part; gold water with an uneven tuft in Octo’s glass, a clumping white slick in mine. Aroma has banana, Munich-like honeyed biscuit, rubber, Hershey’s peanut butter cups squirted with lime- odd for a pils, but not without charm. Paper and almond flavour with an attractive, lingering aftertaste of egg custard and nutmeg like Badger. Off-kilter Belgian pils, and an unexpectedly pleasant experience.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Sunswick, during Belgian Beer Fest. I’m surprised this beer doesn’t get more love; I found it to be an excellent Pilsner. Poured clear gold with a soft, white head. Nose of crisp malts and light sugar. Flavor was crisp with mild sweetness and pleasant bitters on the tail. Light to medium in body with refreshing carbonation. Everything I would want from a Pils.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This was on tap at Spuyten Duyvil, and it was not a very exciting beer. Pretty light, sweet, biscuity pilsner. Not much hop action, and it is similar to East European brews.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Max’s Belgian Fest, called Strubbe Pils: Pours a bright transparent golden with a thin, stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh saaz hops and clean pale malt. Starts with good fullness for the style and nice, fresh noble hops with a clean, smooth finish. A good, true to style and very drinakble pilsner. From the looks of the other ratings, this may not actually be the beer I had.

Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Aroma of grains and wheat. Flavor just bland. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing really right with it either.
