4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours nicely with big upfront hoppy aroma as a pilsner should, I’m guessing czech hops. subtle bitterness and hints of caramel malt. very good pilsner.

Didn’t mind this pilsner too much. Citrusy (lemony in my opinion) finish, and definite grassy or flowery flavors that really werent that unappealing. Decent summertime beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold with hints of orange. Very hoppy for a pils. Hops are very, very grassy in nature. Not a whole lot of crispness or fruitiness in here, mostly grassy hops with a toasty/nutty finish. Seems kind of like ale yeasts were used just from the finish on this one. Not bad, but won’t get this again.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Super-clear gold w/frothy white head. Has a strange ’flower’ taste. And I don’t mean ’hoppy-flowery’. I mean ’flower-flowery’; as if you were munching on a bitter rose petal. A little rough-tasting up front. Strange off flavors: soapy bitterness / burnt malt / cardboard / synthetic, plastic-like flavors. I respect Tröegs, and I wonder if this is skunked or light damaged. But it just came out, and the beer store I got it from takes care of their beer. If it isn’t ’damaged,’ this is one whacked out beer that went off course.
