4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
New brewery. Old mastermind. Give him some flowers and seeds and a tank and let him work his magic. Immediate grand achievements in the "pale beer with depth and finesse" category -- pilsner, saison, and white ipa. Here with an Ol’ Factory Pils 12oz bottle. Right up there with Victory, Lagunitas, Oskar, or Sly Fox, with the hops being a shade less on the flavor factor and a shade greater on the drying factor. Wonderful slightly creamy center tapers long and lean to an unobtrusive clean herbiness. Guzzle in June. Bathe in July.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE: June 16, 2016... GLASSWARE: Hennepin pokal... OCCASSION: Cavs/Warriors Game 6 starts with a bang--can they keep it up?... strong three-finger snow-white head craters well and simmers slowly... body is golden yellow with large bubbles clinging to and jetting up the glass... rather clear too... tracing is sporadic, like barnacles...the hops are front and center, lemony, zesty, andf slightly floral...some ping exists, but the dry hopping settles it to a relaxed, welcoming garden... dough is definite, with a slight dampness suggesting the "ol’ factory" pun... one word--crisp... second word--smooth.... this has a medium-bodied mouthfeel, with a forceful end... the finish doesn’t hold long, but what is left is welcoming... the flavor is lemon zest, lemon grass, a bit of mango and other citric hops.... the dough is soft, and slight malts do the trick to balance this in a most agreeable way... matching the Cavs’ first half, this beer drinks well and true, with enough nuance to distinguish itself from other pilseners... a sessionable, refreshing, tasty offering that makes the second beer sampled from the Two Roads Beer Bus another winner...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Hilton Boston Downtown. Gold with a filmy thin head. A little cling. Aromas of citrus, cut grass and biscuit. Flavors of cut grass, citrus, vinous champagne-like flavors, bready tones and a slight herbal presence. Lingering earthy hop note. Clean mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Aroma is pilsner malts/light cracker with mild floral/fruity hops. Appearance is clear, pale yellow with trace sparkle, finger-width fizzy white head with poor retention and light lacing. Taste is pilsner malts, Noble hops, cereal with light tart. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and average carbonation. Finish is fairly dry and crisp. Overall, a decent, pretty straightforward pilsener.

12oz bottle from Greg, cheers mate. 11th May 2016, poured into a Corsendonk badged tulip. Hazy golden yellow body, full white blanket of bubbles on top. Yeasty and hoppy nose, the taste followed the same lines. Decent and certainly better than most of the US brewed Pilsners I have come across over the years.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I poured it from the bottle into a pilsner glass. It pours cloudy golden with a nice white head and lacing. At first, the aroma was a bit skunky. It improved. It was grass, grain, and dank. The taste was grain, lemon, and hops. This was crisp and dry with a nice bitterness. This was pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and soda like carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Herbal and grassy hops and pale malt fill the mouth. Finish is long and very hoppy. Very good Pilz.
