3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The best Pilsner at the Valpo Beer Fest in 2011. That’s my opinion. Kept the rocky head longer than any other Pilsner served up - seemed to be more Bohemian than the other "German" style pilsners. I wish American brewers made this style more often - I like the Bohemian style pilsners, but by the time they get over here, they’re not as good as continental-made ones, and usually come in a green bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to pint at Upland. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with fluffy white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy, pleasantly skunky, and slightly hoppy with a nice, snappy mouthfeel. A solid pils.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8/11/12. GTMW. Golden pour with a nice enough barely off-white head. Pale and pilsner malts in the aroma with a bit of hay, grass, fruitiness, and spiciness. A parallel flavor with more of the grassiness and spice than the malt aspects. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Twenty Tap. Pours a brilliant gold with a frothy white head. Nose is very clean with a heavy Saaz spiciness. Some soft sweetness on the nose as well, fading into malt. On tasting, it is a bit low in terms of malt overally. Good medium bitterness with the spicy Saaz coming through nicely. Very clean. More malt and this would be top notch.
