3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep clean golden color with a dense, white, creamy head. Aroma has a lot of noble hops with a slightly sour, wet grainy husk nose. Flavor has a Heineken-like hops presence (grassy, spicy hops bite) with a lot more husky grain flavor at the finish of the brew. Body is light and clean with a modest amount of carbonation in the beer. Overall a good lagered brew with good drinkability.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pilsener? Really? Poured from the bottle, it had a yellow/gold body with small lazy bubbles and a huge rocky head that was slow in settling. The aroma was a grainy sweetness. It tasted grainy and had a sugary sweetness with a quiet earthy grassy bitterness that finally arrives in the finish. Not a Pils, obviously, but perhaps drinkable as a Premium Lager. Perhaps.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a cloudy dark amber, more hefe in appearance than pils. Aroma is bitter as is the flavor. The hops add a bitter twang in a bad way. Not a very good pils. Hard to finish one bottle.

Slightly Hazy Amber Color, Big Frothy Head, Lasted for a While, Decent Lacing. Faint Straw Aroma. Malty, Bready, Earthy, Light Bitter Finish. Medium Body, Lightly Buttery. It’s Pilsener, so it is not that exciting as a style overall. Plus, If original recipe is used then you have to account for taste and drinking differences today and when it was brewed the first time. Nothing too good, Nothing Too bad. Main Attraction is that it is Local Product. Let’s hope, company that is trying to revive this brand is successful and puts out more beers that are more exciting and tasty. OK.
