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).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours a clear yellow color with a thick fluffy white head. A thin layer sticks, leaving some decent lacing. The aroma is pretty much what you’d expect; bready and grassy, with corn, herbs, and a little lemon. The flavor falls right in line with that. No surprises or thrills. But this is pretty solid. Nothing skunky, just simple, clean, and refreshing. The bready sweetness is countered nicely by a dry and bitter finish. Yeah, I like it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (Batch 55). Appears to be vastly over carbonated. Pours with a huge white head over a slightly hazy golden body. Aroma of apple, a bit of belgian yeast esters (odd), grainy, hoppy, grassy and spicy. Taste is dry, bitter, spicy and grassy hops. Very lively bubbles, over carbonated. Dry. Bland, but not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a really light yellow almost to the point of white. Initially clear but the bottom of the bottle is more hazy. Crisp and without any of the corn tastes of the bad pils. Nice fluffy head on this with each pour. macro drinkers will find this to be superior

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Rating #5. Slight haze to it, light straw yellow color with a pretty aggressive white head, a lot of carbonation to this one and it left a decent amount of white lacing and a rocky head after a few minutes. Big grassy aroma and a big pilsner malt presence, like fresh milled malt. Clean flavor with a nice little bite, more grassy, cracked barley flavor, not bad. (1896)

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.
