2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at GABF. Light lemon and pepper, light corn / ethanol, sharp saccharine and lots of LME-like raw malt syrup. Medium body, twangy, minty, green plant matter hop character. Funky, game-y and cloying with remnant yellow apple or pear notes, maybe even some banana (!) esters in their. Unclean fermentation, the higher alcohol is especially off-putting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The pour is a clear golden color with a white head. Nose is sweet with a fair amount of adjunct character. It’s got some table sugar, corn/corn syrup, and a light bread note. Minimal hop aromas, just a touch of grass. The flavor is similarly sweet. Lots of sugar and corn notes, a touch of apple juice and fruit esters to it as well. Light bread/malt character and very faint hops. No real perceivable bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. This one has eluded me for some time. A pretty nice pils/export with good balance and drinkability. It is a bright gold color with a small amount of lasting foam, though they don’t pour much of a head in their pint glasses. The aroma is pretty closed to start, probably owing to the low serving temp, but opens as the beer warms, exhibiting sweet bread a spicy noble hops. It never becomes very pronounced, but is quite pleasant. The flavor is a mix of clean bready malts and a hoppy, lightly mineral and medium bitter finish. Balance remains fairly equal, with the bitterness nicely cleaning up the finish and making the beer quite refreshing, but never really stepping on the malt. The body is light and just a little too watery, though not far off for the style. Mellow, but well done.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewery, 02/18/08. 5.1% ABV. Unfiltered: a hazy golden hue. No carbonation to speak of; the only one of my batch of tasters with no foam left after a couple of minutes. Aroma is spicy: cloves and black pepper. Main flavor is what macro lagers are aiming for (a bit of sweet graininess), but there’s a bit of spiciness (coriander?) and a hint of bitterness before a generally clean finish. One of the better pilseners I’ve had, period.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an brilliantly clear straw gold with a soapy white head. Aroma of fresh cut grass and sweet malt. Very fresh tasting and refreshing. Nice firm malt body. med.-lite body. This is a great example of the style and a very enjoyable lawnmower beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First Again! This sucker poured a crisp yellow-green with light carbonation. There was a minimal malty aroma (some generic pils aromas were present). The flavor was lightly sweet with mello malt. Light watery body. Refreshing with body, though I was not too thrilled to have a whole pint.
