3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Congregation. White head dissolves in five minutes over fast lacing and a clear, pilsner body. Aroma is pilsner mild but straw, grass, and some process of baking whole grain bread or urine. Taste is mildly sweet becoming water with a long, mild bitter finish. There is mild umami somewhere between the aroma and the finish. Overall, very good, but there are better.

Pour is a clear yellow with a average white head. Aroma is a dry pils malt but also a kind of sweet simple syrup to it. Flavor loses the sweetness from the aroma. The rest it your typical dry cracker malt with just enough grassy hop. Typical easy drinking soild pils neither great nor bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light clear yellow with smaller white head. The aroma has pale pils malt, spicy hops, light herbs and touch of dough. It has a light crisp body with fairly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with cry malt, bright minty hops, grass, minerals and crackery malt. The finish is fairly astringent. Pretty good.

"a pretty decent example of the style, but definitely not a standout. had a SA Noble Pils later in the same day that i first tried this, and SA blows it away. Clean and crisp, with a nice slight malt character and a touch of hops. bubbly, but little to no head. decent."

Clear sun bleached straw yellow. The hop is so light the malt sticks out, it mellows but the flavor lasts. It has a slight bitter.

12oz bottle via secret Santa pours a clear golden/yellow with a medium white head. Subdued aroma of malt and grain, with grassy hops. Taste is clean, but like the aroma nothing really pops here. It’s well balanced and very drinkable, a very decent Pilsner, however lacks brightness and crispness

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a very effervescent clear yellow color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is very floral and minerally. The flavor is the same with a nice noble hop presence and a clean palate. A little bit of aspirin in the finish that throws it a bit off for me. I’m not sure if this is the new version of their old Pilsner, but I liked the previous one better.

Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is bready/grainy with some sweet corn and some grassy, noble hops. The flavor is pretty big with a full body and some bread and corn. Strong noble hop presence offsets the sweetness. The finish is nice with some earthy bitterness and a touch of sulfer. Overall, a nice flavorful pils that’s just a little too sweet for my tastes.
