3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a dark yellow with a large white head. Aroma is typical pils malt with some grassy hops. Flavor is litghter on the malts than the skyscraper but there is deffinatly a nice biscuit quality to this one. A decent and easy drinking pils and something you can session easy.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little darker than the skyscraper, with a darker golden coloring with a small ring of white foam. The tiny cups in the sampler makes this one look like a urine sample. A little buttery and hiney in the nose, fruity noble hops. Not crazy about this one, well made but not my style.

Pretty golden color with thin white head. Crisp and quite dry with nice bitterness and slight lemon backdrop. Quenching. Props to this little brewery for dedicating itself to lagers and doing them well.

STL microfest. Tin Mill really impressed me at the fest with great versions of everything they they offered. Pours pale yellow with a large white head. The aroma has grassy hops and pale malt. Medium / thin body with subdued carbonation. The taste is like the aroma and is very refreshing and clean with light spiciness as well. There is some creaminess in there too. Nice pils.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle from theisti Clean aroma with light malt and earthy/floral hops. Yellow color, brilliant clarity, 2 fingered head and persistent carbonation. There are scant traces that this is bottle conditioned. A nice pils malt sweetness up front and some earthy and floral hops at the back end. A moderate, but smooth, bitterness makes this very drinkable. The beer may be a bit overcarbonated, but otherwise a nice BoPils. This would be a nice one to quaff all day long at the Hermann Octoberfest.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2010 I went in expecting this to be a typical thin, watery pils, but I was wrong. Good effort. I’ll be back in May.

12 ounce bottle from theisti
Pours clear golden with a pure white head and raising carbonation bubbles.
The aroma is mostly pilsner malt sweetness, with a touch of nobel hop aroma.
Certainly an all malt beer. A bit of a DMS character. Minty hops.
Medium, maybe even one of the fuller bodied pils I’ve had. Very carbonated. Semi sweet finish.
Yeah, this is a really good beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from theisti. Pours a clear golden yellow with a loose, frothy, white head that reduces leaving decent lace. The nose is clean, highlighting earthy hops with no real malt aroma. Light-bodied and thin with fine carbonation and a crisp, lightly bitter finish. The flavor is a sweet bready pilsner malt backed by lightly spicy, earthy hops. Where this pilsener lacks in its nose, it makes up for in its flavor. A very tasty pilsener and one worthy of being a go-to session beer. Thanks for bringing this one back, Tim.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2007 12 oz. bottle purchased at the Brewery. Pour is clear straw yellow with a few carbonation bubbles and a two inch white head. Aroma of nice earthiness, Saaz hops and some peppery spice. Taste has the earthiness, spice, some faint sweetness and the hops carrying the middle to finish. Really nice mouth feel, big full flavor. Very clean and crisp finish. Certainly the tastiest Pils I have tasted. Nicely done, and good to have another quality MO brewer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle by way of theisti. Lightly grainy malt aroma, faintly fruity, sweet and herbal with a touch of spice. Clear light golden color with a very slight head. Flavor is fairly well balanced between the light, sweet malts, peppery, spicy hop flavors, insistent bitterness and faint pear-like fruitiness. Finishes clean and semi-dry with a light-medium body. Very easy to drink, even has relatively low carbonation for the style for even more drinkability. Indeed comes across as more of the Czech style Pils as it’s listed here, including some Saaz character.
