5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle. Hazy straw yellow pour, white bubbly head. Aroma of crisp grassy hops, faint bit of must in the malt, citrus rind/light fruit. Flavors of dry malt with a decent bit of grapefruit/citrus rind come into play, a slight earthiness/must is apparent as well. Light bubbly body, crisp/bitter/malty throughout with a dry lingering bitter finish. Overall, this is one of my top three session beers: it’s bright and crisp and overall just a very satisfying brew that I drink regularly all year round. This coupled with a very fair price point makes it a hard beer to beat. Most definitely my favorite summer brew as well as my favorite pilsener. I don’t see what there is to not love about this beer.

Crisp pour on tattoo I’m Gainesville Florida. Prim yellow gold tint with a thin head. Not getting much nose. so hoppy for a pils. Tastes more like a light crisp ipa.

Pours straw colored in glass. Aromas of malt and citrus. Taste follows nose. Full body nice carbonation. A bit to hoppy for my liking.

On tap at Spring Street Bar in downtown LA on Dec. 10th. First time for this legendary brew, but have to say it was not too impressive. Based on other beers tasted at same respected bar, it was not the establishment. Decent, but would I buy again? Probably not.

I got this at Binnys. Pours gold with a white head. Taste floral, citrus, bitter. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. For a filtered beer this certainly has an unfiltered pale yellow color to it with a white fizzy head that fades fast. The aroma is grainy and bready malts, citrus, and clean hop note. The body is in the medium range with a decent smooth texture. The taste has an upfront grainy, husky flavor with a lingering citrusy bitterness at the finish.

Pint at Alehouse in SAMO. Incredibly crisp, clean, and grassy. Floral notes. Light, golden color. Next to no head. Yeasty aftertaste, in a pleasant way. One of my favorite Pils.

Call it a pilsener if you like, but this is far more a pale ale bordering on an IPA. It’s totally overrun with hops right out of the bottle with oranges and spruce trees dominating the nose. If there are malts anywhere in this concoction, they fail miserably at fending off waves of bitter dryness. It’s a nice little beverage, but doesn’t strike these tastebuds as a pilsener.

Draft at the Monkey Paw. Golden pour. White head. Dank musty flavor. Apricot and raisin notes. Not my favorite but also don't go for pilsners too often

Draft. Pours bright clear copper gold with a thin white head. Tastes malty and musky, like grains, slightly nutty, and light citrus. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like grains and malt.
