3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12FL OZ ($21 12pack) The first go around with this beer company I got a 2 year expired 12pack and it was weak, but thanks to the great guys at Canoga Park BevMo; they swapped it out and discovered the brewer dropped off that 2 year expired and a 3 year expired. crazy! but after that SnaFu I go to rate this one. very carbonated. great taste and easy going.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden, low carbonation, medium frothy head. Light caramel banana pine aromas. Quite sweet, probably a bit too much for mine.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Clear yellow with no head. Crisp flavor profile with floral hints. Getting hints of pine and grass to it. A decent amount of malt sweetness on this beer and I was hoping for a little more hop bitterness to balance it out. Decent for this style but nothing that blew my doors off.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear straw with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is grassy hops, grainy malt. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild to moderate bitter. (7/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp lightly bitter finish. (4/5)
As pilsners go, a decent example of the style, albeit somewhat more highly hopped than is typical. Which is of course the reason I consider it a decent example. Crisp, refreshing, and quite drinkable. (14/20)

Ordentliches Pils mit einer wuerzigen Note. Angenehm trocken, etwas Hopfen, ein wenig Wuerze und ein recht trockener Schluss. Knackig. einfach, vollkommen ok.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
27th May 2015: on-tap at 101 Tap House, Oceanside. Decent Pilsner all round. Golden, clear and bright with a full white head. Crisp feel to the brew even if the aroma (like most Lager/Pilsners) was weak and thin. Mild malty lead over the hops in the flavouring: nothing spectacular or outstanding within the brew, just a very refreshing beer and really pleased I came across it while out in California.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2015 Grassy, grainy and savory complimented with moderate bitterness, although it is more bitter than most pilsners. Thin body and lightly textured. Very dry, finishes quickly and cleanly. One of my summer go to favorites.

The beer has got a clear golden colour with an airy head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and citrus fruits. Taste of hops, malt, bread, citrus fruits and grass. Bitter-hoppy finish. Refreshing and solid.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours golden and slightly cloudy. Has a compact, white, head that dissipates moderately. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is fairly bitter, which goes against what you would expect from the aroma. It is very hoppy with a medium body and slightly creamy texture. Carbonation is average. The finish is all hops. I’m not a big fan of super-hoppy beer and this one doesn’t impress me either. However, I do like the aroma and the texture of the beer. Would I buy this beer again? Probably not, considering how many other beers are out there that I like better. If a friend served these at a BBQ, would I drink one? Absolutely, as I can see how a cold one of these would hit the spot on a warm, sunny day.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at O’Connors. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma sweet, malty, flowers, herbs, grass and earth. Taste is sweet, almost sticky, earthy, grassy hops with a sweet and slightly astringen finish. Too sweet, didn’t go well with me at all
