2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Consumed on draft at brewery, 12/30/07. Incredibly clear, pale golden beer with some active carbonation and a head that went down to a thin skin fairly quickly. Aroma - rubbery, solvent. Uh-oh. Luckily, flavor is corn and a hint of malt graininess. Mild astringency, even milder bitterness. Nothing special.

It think they called it a "European Pilsener", that explains the gold at the GABF.....taste was reminiscent of water.

Suprised to see that this won a gold medal. Pale yellow-watery appearance. Mostly there is just something really odd about this beer. Dry hop finish, but also lumpy. Not great for sure.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
clear pale straw yellow color with a thin white head and some spotty lacing.
solvent-y alcohol aroma...ick, followed by grainy sweetness and fruit.
the palate is WAY too sweet... flavors of strawberries, lemon and spicy grain.
medium bodied leaning on syrupy which keeps it from being refreshing or enjoyable. 3/3/4/2/8/2.0

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very watery, weak, and almost flavorless except for a slight woody taste. Supposedly this won gold at the GABF one year...I’ve never given too much credit to GABF wins, but this had to be either a different beer or a bad keg.
