12 oz. bottle from Harris Teeter Carrboro, best by July 22.
Ar: Aroma is grassy, bread dough, and a bit of fruitiness.
Ap: Pours a crystal clear light copper/gold with a small frothy head that leaves nice lace.
T: Slightly sweet malty flavor up front, finish is nicely bittered with grass and lemony notes.
P: Medium-thin body, medium carbonation.
O: Gotta go against the grain a bit on this one. This is a nice spring/summer beer.

From the tackle box. Pours opaque orange-ish yellow with white head and really thick line of lace resembling a 2D mountain range. Aroma is grapefruit and grassy. Taste is equal malts and hops. Nice balance smooth finish. Oily mouthfeel. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of pale malts and light hops. Flavor the same, with nothing standing out. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. Boring beer.

I believe the idea that it was a pilsner recipe, the pale malts and spicy hops come through, but the beer lacks the bracing bitter and dry finish of a good pilsner. I feel that this just didn’t succeed.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pale gold pour, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is pilsener, with some hay, and very light resinous hops. Sweet flavor, with a bit of sharp bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a hard, crisp, and pretty lively mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer, for the style. Very understated and sessionable. Not my kind of beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow/gold pour that is a bit hazy. An inch + of white foamy head leaving webbed lacing. Pils nose that is sweet malt, grain and floral hops with a bit of funk. Fairly smooth mouth, lt/med body and appropriate crispness. There is a maltiness to Road Trip, but this more about floral/citrus hops. Not a big pilsner fan, but I liked this - probably because it isn’t really a pils. Great after work brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Warehouse Wine in Spring Hill. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is pale malt, some light caramel, some pepper, and some yeast with hints of grass and hay. Flavor is similar- pale malt, some hay, some grassy hops, and some dry and peppery yeast toward the finish. Easy-drinking and light in body, but the yeast really dries it out at the end.
