2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of gooovikings. Light yellow, clear appearance with lively carbonation and a foamy white head. Slightly grainy but really just a clear pilsner aroma with mild Noble hops. Mild to medium Noble hop bitterness, a weird sweet pilsner malty flavor. Kind of a metallic off taste with a dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at the brewery tasting room. Golden orange, crisp and tangy with a bit of a hoppy Germanicness, but overall a rich and fully malty body. Well done pilsner. (#3026, 7/16/2007)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle bought at the brewery. Vigorously poured into a 1 liter dimpled mug brought a nice frothy almost white head that lasted nicely. A golden and clear beer. Aroma of yeast, fruit, malt, hops, and honey. Quite a nice flavor. Some spice, nice malt, frisky hops, citrus fruit, grapefruit, and mild earthy bitterness. Tasty and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewpub. They stated that this was more hoppy than the Skyscraper. A deep amber colored body. Oranges and bread crust came out of the smelling. I tasted oranges with some bread crust. There was also a little bit of soap in the finish. Decent, but not as well balanced as Skyscraper.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
poured a slight yellow color with no head and didn’t really have any scents that stood out. the taste was a little hoppy and it felt like i was drinking water on the palate. there was a small bite in the aftertaste but that was about it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with a bubbly, though somewhat sparse, white head.
Smell: Faintly sweetish pils malt nose with some mild floral hop notes.
Taste: Light pale malts, slightly grainy, and with a light sweetness. Tiny hint of lemon. Floral hop character with a mild bitterness. Finishes dry with a small bit of lingering hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A fine pilsener to combat the Missouri heat (provided Missouri even gets much heat). Though, if you’re in a bind as to reach for this or the Skyscraper, I’ll lend my recommendation to the latter.
