3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The came from BevMo in Vacaville, CA and cost $7.99 for aixer. From a 12 oz bottle this poured a clear bright orange with a nice white head. Good lacing, unusual color for a pils. Nose is caramel malts and citrus and floral hops. Medium but clean mouthfeel. Flavor shows lots of the citrus hops and the finish is bitter. Nice drinking.

Pours medium golden orange with a thin white head. Malty bready nose with a hint of honey. Same in the flavor with a bit of oxidation. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pale straw color with a lasting, fluffy head. The aroma has lots of floral and spicy hops, with fresh dough as well. The flavor is first and foremost bitter. Lean and dry in the malt department; the spicy, herbal hops dominate. A nice German style pilsner; lean and hoppy. Super refreshing on a hot day, but the lack of malt robustness lets you down a little when you want some more substance to chew on.

On tap. Not very impressive as far as body or flavor. This brew was lightly carbinated and very smooth. It was ok.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Crystal clear, pale golden colored pour with a frothy layer of brilliant white head. Gentle aromas of herbal and floral hops liven up an ultra clean bready pilsener malt base. No DMS, making the true characters of the pilsener malt really shine through. Light bodied, crisp, refreshing mouthfeel with a sizzling carbonation. Well attenuated and exceptionally balanced between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Bready, doughy malt up front, followed by a refreshing finish of herbal hops. Dry, lagery finish. Perfectly hopped, and wonderfully clean. It’s difficult to find a good fresh pilsner that exhibits zero DMS, but this one does so marvelously, allowing the pilsener malt to shine through wonderfully. Flavorful, quaffable, refreshing, clean. Awesome pils.

Bottle. Poured with a half finger head. Body is a very clear, almost watery yellow color. Nice bitter flavor, tastes very average for the style. Easily notable bubbly flavor, over carbonated? I think so.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light colour of gold. Nice bitter style aftertaste I think it could be a little less carbonated. It’s a good beer.
