2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2005 While this beer had a nice head, clean aroma, light color and delicate taste...it simply was not what I would call a Pilsner. Filing this beer as a Pale Lager definitely suits the beer...and I think the upcoming name change should reflect the nature of this beer!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Quickly dissipating head. Dark yellow. Faint clover honey aroma. Fair amount of metallic bitterness and light sweetness. Overall more like a macro-clone than micro-stretch.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark straw colour. Aroma is largely grainy, with some slightly sweaty yeast notes. Bland palate - hints of grain and earthy hop. Low bitterness. Sweetish, bland finish. No honey. No pilsner. Just boring, boring beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 A fair bit of the usual you’d expect from a real Pilsener plus a slight honey taste, not much but it’s there and it’s pleasant, medium hop aroma. Overall a nice light beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A real interesting Idea and some people may really like this one.
on the pour:Very light gold,small white head,the nose is malt yeast and a back ground of honey.
on taste:Mild,clean and perhaps a little bland,the honey is really just nearly noticeable and makes for an unusual tasting pilsner.It is under-hopped,but only a little(hey they called it a pilsner,not a lager).the middle is slightly musty and then it drys out,no noticeable aftertaste.
Body: it is thicker then your average pil due to the honey,and they did not hold back on the bubbles.
I like it,kudo's to the brewer for trying something different.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden yellow with white head and some lacing. Crisp zesty hop aroma with faint malt. Slightly floral. Good malty taste and a crisp aromatic finish. Fairly thin bodied but still refresing.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Loose head, very thin in aroma and mouthfeel, with very little hops, this beer may still be too green.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2006 (Bottle) Amber body with a medium, frothy white head. Slightly sweetened nose - likely the honey. Nothing special - an overly sweetened lager? Below average.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold body with head. Little aroma, I guess it was slightly sweet. Flavour was sweeter but I didn't notice the honey per se. Was syrupy.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
I didnt like the flavour at all. Looked a little hazy, nice color, no head, decent carbonation. Too sweet in a bad way as well.
