3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Orangish straw, thick and hazy, large fluffy white head, nice lacing. Grassy nose, a little dry straw/hay as well. Nice and grassy on the tongue, straw, hay, even a touch wheaty. Not as crisp as others, but it also feels a bit heftier. Backside is a little astringent, but only slightly. Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. Tiz okay, could stand to be a little crisper and less astringent, but I bet that it would also be not as full bodied. Seems a bigger Pilsener, at a cost.

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle sat on the shelf too long, or stored wrong. Relatively flat, and tastes oxidized, but has potential to be an excellent Mexican style pils judging from color and aroma

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
So good to be #10 rater. 750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Batch No. 81. Opens with a cannon shot. Pours light gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Aroma is mildly bready with some grassy hop. Med + body. The carb is very frothy. There’s a lot of grass, and the breadiness is not obnoxious. The BC may be a bit over the top, but there’s an incredible amount of flavor. The bitter is tearing at my jaw hinges. This after finishing off a Evil Twin Freudian Slip. I’m nominating this one for an Imperial Pilsner. Excellent lager (and I’m not a friend of those for the most part).
