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.

Foam especially beautiful, soft maltiness, light-bodied with smooth, delicate, fragrant, taste very honest, balanced dry finish.

Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA on 6/27/11. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized creamy white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale malts and grassy hops. The taste is pretty much the same. Creamy mouthfeel, well balanced. Pretty nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vanilla and butter aroma. Pale golden color, white head, good lace. Light sweet, hoppy, butter, very sparkling. Strange pils and technically probably not the best but I like the strange butterness and other flavors in this strange pils.

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.

Draft a Max’s. A reasonable, though not spectacular pilsner. Very pale, clear straw-yellow pour. Strong cereal aroma with grassy hop notes. Not quite has good a flavor as the aroma suggests. Yeast and cereal dominate with a moderate hop finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: light yellow with medium-sized white head. Aroma is spicy yeast mixing with straw, tart grass, and some sweet caramel. Flavor is sweet-tart with grass, honey, a touch of bisquit and a little caramel. Overall, I like the flavor which is more to the sweeter side for a pils, but I still enjoyed it.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet malt nose, just a touch of grassy hops. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, some lemon and grass, light honey. Decent.
