rodenbachvintage (46) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2017
oerdegelijke, eerlijke pils. Niet te zoet, niet te bitter, vlotte drinker. Beetje hoppig in de nasmaak, wat de meeste Belgische pilsen minder hebben.

BBD: 1/6/17

2015 BJCP Category: 5D German Pils

AROMA: Moderate spicy Noble hop presence. Slightly skunky. Touch of lemon and honey as well. General pale malt scent with indication of sweetness. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Straw yellow hue (2-4 SRM); very clear body. Small, white foam. 3/3

FLAVOR: Medium Noble hop peppery/spicy flavor and bitterness right away. Moderately sweet malt base with a honey/lemon flavor quickly follows. Well-attenuated, clean fermentation. Hops linger momentarily, otherwise the aftertaste is clean. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium carbonation. Refreshing and crisp. Easily sessionable at 5.2% ABV, especially in warmer months. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Mostly to spec for the style, just a little mild. Fun and easy to drink, though. 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 35/50

Clear light golden under a thin foamy white head. Thin biscuity crackery Lager aroma that’s earthy and quintessentially German. Crisp clean and super smooth flavor that’s pale and crackery, a bit lagered, lightly grassy and super traditional. Clean and pretty great.

Tap, The Beer Grotto, Ann Arbor, MI. Very pale yellow. Honey pepper aroma. Somewhat sweet. Malty for a pilsner. Muted finish.

muzzlehatch (4963) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2017
330 ml can from Everett’s in South Beloit, IL, served a bit below cellar temp from a Coors glass. Very, very pale, bubbly gold with a largish, semi-stable snowy cumulus head....aroma lightly bready, a bit of corn - DMS - some dry grassiness, perhaps a faint touch of rosemary, very faint, not unpleasant overall...initially rather dry and slightly bitter, this becomes a bit too sweet and syrupy at midpalate, finishing better but with a little unpleasant metallic whisper...overall not that great but drinkable enough, probably would have been better ice-cold in this case. Better than my dim memory of Stella anyway, as far as likely competitors go.

Minimal head. Average tasting pilsener. The malty aftertaste (though not strong) isn’t appealing to me. Victory’s Prima Pils is a better choice.

3.3
CObiased (506) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2017
11.2oz can - it pours a clear very light golden yellow with an almost nonexistent white head. Good crisp aroma of grassy hops, whiff of funkiness, a little floral and cracker like malts. Low carbonation. Decent flavor with notes of cracker and bready malts, floral and grassy hops, and a hint of wheat.

On tap. Pours straw with white head. Lots of malt sweetness. Very clean finish.
