3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to douglas88. Pours darkish gold with a big frothy white head. Bready aroma. Perhaps a bit of noble hop. Near medium body with decent carbonation. Flavor is bready and hallertauish. Finish is mildly bitter. It’s on its way to being a German pilsener, not just a pale lager. Some light fruit developed somewhere, I’ve just noticed.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not a typical pilsener. It reminds me more of a clean tasting pale ale, not true to style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a dense, easily-resuscitated white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and bready notes accented by lemon rind and thick yeasty notes.. smelled a bit on the sweet side. The flavor found sweet bready notes at the core, with dry lemon zest, earthy bitterness, and mild oxidation around.. tacky sweetness on the finish.. just OK. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. decent balance, but a little too sweet.. drinkable stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear deep gold with thin white head. The aroma is legary sweet malts and a bit of esters when swirled around. The taste has a bit of hop bite to start to go along with grainy malts and a pretty darn refreshing sensation.

Bottle. Clear light gold pour with a white head. Grassy nose and taste with a bit of hop bitterness. Pretty forgettable.
