4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
pint comes a bright, suprisingly deep, amber, with a nice white head that retains well and leaves good lace. herbaceous nose, with deep woody notes, hangs heavy over a toasty maltiness, with a light nuttiness. super tasty pils starts clean and malty, with again a bit more character (toasted) than standard pils maltiness. hops balance nicely, with cleanly spiced flavors mixing in with a good solid kick of bittering. really outstanding, with a nice, crisp kick.
gorgeous take on a pilsner, though perhaps a bit a-typical in its malt character - but who cares? it’s an awesome drinking beer. a pils made w/pale ale malt?

Golden colour. Hardly any aroma. Crisp hoppiness and light malts on the palate with a fair amount of earthy continental hop notes. Serviceable if a bit bland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale golden. Dryish with dense, clean mouthfeel. A fair amount of grainy malt combined with some grassy, spicy hops and a lingering salty bitterness makes this a decent pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at the brewpub. Medium yellow, big bubbly white head. Very mild aroma, where I might be able to sniff a few faint pils type hops. Good hop characteristic however is taste - nice pils like taste. Light malt, light mouthfeel all come together - a good pils. Just put some aroma in to boost the rating!
