4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pils is one of the most aesthetically pleasing brews I've encountered yet, with it's beautiful lemony yellow color and bone white wisps of foam, effervescing up in thin streams like kite strings. It has a fresh, sweet aroma (like flowers? Clover? Or something lighter - I can't quite place it). Hoppy, yes (as promised by the label) - it really punches your tongue initially. Reminds me of summer - light, and overall, a great pils.

A pretty decent pilsener, sparkling gold in color, nice bubbly white head that laced around the glass, very crisp & clean, didn't have that big of a hop profile at first taste but then it kicked in toward the finish, a little unbalanced, medium body, a decent beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale yellow straw color. Very mild hop aroma - a little weak. Slightly sweet grainy flavor - very mild in flavor (as in all other characteristics). Some more euro finishing hops and aroma hops would greatly improve this pilsner.

Fluffy white head. Bright, gold/straw color, beautiful. Big spicey hop nose. Medium body. Spicey hop flavor, kinda citrusy, fruity. Crisp hop flavors. Nice bite in the dry finish with a gentle malt backing. Good tasting pils.

Nice golden color looked great in the glass. Malty nose. This is a great Pilsner beer with a loooong finish. The flavor was malty and it was a well balanced Pils. Seems tough to find many great Pils beers, but I'll be back to this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling clear yellow hue. Very small, white, fizzy head. Quickly diminishing with no lacing.
The aroma is lightly malty with floral and citrus notes.
The flavor is barely malty with a small butterscotch presence up front and a moderately bitter, lightly pungent and citrusy presence on the backside. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Long, bitter, dry finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden. Okay, I'll admit it, I drank this straight from the bottle...outside of the Philly's stadium. Light roasty hoppiness towards the end. Bland, usual stuff.

(Bottled on 4/4/03) The beer shows a wonderful nose full of fresh saaz hoppy goodness. The palate is mainly malty, smooth, with a late hop bitterness, which is appetizing. The finish is the part I like most about this beer; it is superbly long and flavorful. I really like this beer; it is very clean and fresh tasting. A must try for lager buffs.
