3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber. Light hazy soft golden pour, big frothy head, decent retention. Light lace. Aroma was full of earthy, grassy hops, light orange peel and some lemon. Very nice. Flavors were right on par. Light crisp pale malts, light lemon throughout. Only a light bitterness in the finish, super dry and crisp. A good bit of carbonation made for a light fizzy mouthfeel that rounded out this Pils in great fashion. Great stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On the fly from notes from last night.
A: Yellow with hazy clarity. Butter colored quilt of foam atop which grasps for the edges well. Spotty lacing.
S: Floral: jasmine, hibiscus and hints of grain. Nice.
T: Buttery grains and hints of noble hops. Great bitterness on the mid-palate.
M: A little thick for the style IMO. Moderate carb. Barely slick in the finish.
O: Above average, but the mouthfeel and tastes donít up to the level of greatness I expect in a pils.
Serving type: on-tap

Crisp pour on tattoo Iím 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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Call it a pilsener if you like, but this is far more a pale ale bordering on an IPA. Itís 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. Itís a nice little beverage, but doesnít 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
