3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden color. White head. Very nice aroma. Better than some pale ales. Not much hops, as expected. Easy drinking taste. Malts, with light hops present. This is a pleasant, well done pilsener, and is faithful to the style, but, personally, I prefer a stronger taste (which is why I don’t often buy pils). Refreshing to drink. Matches up well against the classic European pilseners. I recommend it to those who are looking for an American pilsener.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet bready aroma with some notes of spicy hops. Deep yellow color with a white head...fades quickly. Rich sweet malt up front. Off bitter, peppery hops fade in...mild,,,,but sweetness wins out. Finish has an off bitterness that does not mend well with sweetness. Medium mouth feel with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Average for the style....very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-24-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Poured a nice light golden color. The beer had a large thick white head with great retention but eventually fades to give a great level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is biggest of a bready malt with notes of yeast, pepper and some lightly sweetened lemon citrus.
Taste – The taste begins mostly of a bready taste with some light lemon hop flavors. As the taste moves on the hop gets slightly stronger and the bready flavor becomes more “buttery” and takes on a more biscuit nature. In the end a light grassy flavor come to the tongue blending with the lemon to leave a lingering aftertaste..
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was of average thickness with a carbonation level that was also very average as well.
Overall – It’s a pretty good Pilsener with a decent flavor, feel and look. Worth a try, but nothing to go out of your way for.

12oz bottle, clean crisp flavor of a pilsner. Pale Yellow pour, minimal head, slight lacing. Some sweetness, thin feel. Drinkable, nothing rude coming through, a decent brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a one finger foamy white head. The nose is bready malt and a light hint of soapiness along with some minimal hoppiness. The flavor is a little weak in the hops department, enhancing the slight sweetness from the malt. It’s not at all crisp or clean, and the sweetness seems to intensify over the course of the bottle. This isn’t my ideal profile for a BoPils. Soft on the tongue with gentle carbonation and a bit of clinginess on the finish. Meh, this doesn’t cut it for me.
