2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Quite pleasant aroma with sugary fruityness and some pale malts. Quite sweet flavor, fruity and with some bitterness. Medium body, decent carbonation. A pretty straight forward pilsner but too sweet. Rather boring actually. 110416

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma is pretty much noble hop, but there’s a touch of citrus. Medium body. Flavor is ? It’s not exactly bready, it’s pretty floral/grassy. It’s slightly sweet, but the noble bitter renders that into the ground. Then it lets go wtih floral. And it is dry. This stuff drinks like ale. Move over Czechs!

Light lagers and pilsners are one of the most consistently underappreciated styles by beer geeks. Such appears to be the case here as well, because this is a wonderfully vibrant example of the style. Although, it’s fair to say that my experience may be quite different from a sample obtained at the source; this thing is seven months beyond the BB date, after all. For this style, normally that would yield a dull sample at best. But this is anything but dull. Whereas this may have been more brightly hoppy when fresh, the bottle conditioning is presumably responsible for producing some delightful tropical esters. Not that such notes are all that typical for the style, but they’re certainly welcome. Would love to try this fresh. Props once again to Shelton for bringing another (apparently) great brewery stateside.
