3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Institute, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is resin and citrus, along with some bread. When I was drinking it, I didn’t realize it was a pilsner, mostly because I misread the name of the beer. Hoppiness and bitterness is strong. Good.

Bottle. Pours a dark slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a bit odd, some appley notes, cider, some sweet bread, herbal hops, a touch of pine. Flavor has much the same, a bit less apple which is good, more of the herbal spicy hops. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

Tap, pour is golden, the flavour is very strong and finish is a bit harsh, not too too drinkable, it has a corny and a nice hoppiness to it, overall quite yummy

Not much of a pilsner guy, but for this I am. This has a good amount of hops in it that actually gives this style a zing.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer defies categorization, and I like it all the more for it. A lager you always wished for - one with extra ooomph. A very nice balance of toasty start with a bitter finish not normally seen in a lager or a pilsner, or a keller, or whatever the heck this is. I really enjoyed this beer and wish I had gotten a six-pack instead of a single. Highly recommended.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Bottle. A strange brew! But I liked it more and more. Pepper, pine, floral, caramel and banana scent. Cloudy deep copper pour with a big foamy head. Gorgeous. Light/medium body, dry finish. Peppery, floral hop, taste with a pine bitter finish and a touch of that sweet caramel as it warmed.
