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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear light gold and has a thin white head that sticks around while you drink. Aroma is fruity with a clean yeast and a light malty note. Taste is wonderful very crisp and the hop selection is on point with this and it takes over the flavor for a moment before the german light pils comes through. There is a citrus element that comes through the aroma and flavor that makes this beer very drinkable and refreshing, I think it is a good representation of style..

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 is it a pilsener? it's so delicoius with no annoying nose or corny taste. actually, has a surpising sweet malt taste, unlike most even czech pilseners. a pleasure the whole way through. note: a good one to wean stubborn americans onto something great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is my favorite Pilsner/regular lager Iíve had. Light gold with a well retained, small white head. Aroma is full of wonderful hops, germanic in character with perhaps a little citrus in there. Taste is wonderful and balanced with complex, soft and bready malts, rich without being too sweet, classic pilsner style hopping with tones of herbs and subtle citrus. Definitely an american take on Pilsner. On the light side of medium bodied, and very smooth with a crisp finish. Iíd agree with the commercial description that thereís something elegant about this beer. Itís also my new "most refreshing" beer, just edging out Fullerís London Pride, and will be bought again for post-lawn work relaxation on beautiful summer nights.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pleasant golden yellow with a nice think white head.
Aroma is bright and hoppy, notes of grass, and pine. A slight note bready malts lingers through.
light sweetness, and quite hoppy. The hop flavor balance is good, but it is fairly bitter for the style. slightly sour with a long lingering aftertaste.
The beer has a slick feel to it that sticks to the back of your throat.
While pils are not my favorite style I guess I missed the boat on this particular one. Iíve had many other pils that I enjoy more then this one the long bitter aftertaste and mouthfeel just arenít for me

Frothy white head on a clean pale yellow body. Crisp and a bit of grassy acidity from the hops. A good summer beer.
