Total Wine, Fairfax sixer: Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is American hops, with some grass, and bread. Taste is nice and hoppy, with more of an American pine direction than a German grassy one. Refreshing and crisp of course. Tasty and sessionable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Capital Ale House Harrisonburg. Pours golden with an inch of white head that disappears quickly and leaves little lacing. Slight note of corn on the nose. Not much on the tongue except a faint citrus. Finishes watery. Not the best pilsner I’ve had by far.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours pale yellow with a thin scummy white head. The aroma was some grain, a bit of grass or hay and a whole lot more of not much else. Tastewise, cereal graininess, a touch of malt sweetness and a bit of a hop bite in the background. Bland, thinnish but drinkable, almost like Staropramen if I may damn with faint praise.
