Kind of overly fizzy for a pils but not a bad beer
Great malty aroma and lovely golden color.
Good beer to enjoy any time

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden, with a really thick white head.
Aroma, fruity (citrus), yeasty (close to vegetable).
Taste, hoppy, sugary malts with a fair amount of citrus/banana.
Not a bad pislner, the beer is just loaded with citrus, malts and yeast.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours deep gold with copper core and thin white head. The aroma is floral and spicy hops to go along with malt sweetness. The taste is refreshing with grainy Munich like malts. Notes of floral and spice hops mixing with a citrus lemon undercurrent grow as the finish approaches. It ends try and tart.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle brought back from the East Coast by a friend). Pours thinnish head that goes away pretty fast. Light yellow colored body. Fine group of bubbles coming up from the middle of the glass, otherwise doesn’t appear to have a great amount of carbonation to it. Has a nice aroma similar to a germanic pilsner. Very hoppy flavor of traditional german hops. Could be catagorized as a Marzen in my book. Hops linger on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean yellow pour beneath an overactive fountain of foam. It essentially poured froth, though it didn’t really gush over. Paper, pine, lemon curd, honey and minerals in an earth hued aroma. Softly bitter, and smooth, hiding a jagged roughness of grain quite with relative ease. Flavor is crisp and refreshing, with lots of musty, strawlike hallertau bitterness and minty hop leaves. Softest dusty phenols and esters of fruity stripes. Wholesome lemony sweetness and white breads. Light palate is punchy and bone dry, finishing on straw and distant sugars. Far from plain, and pleasant in its own way. Thanks Chris!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent hop aroma, minty character I’ve noticed with this brewer. Dry, a little watery, some cirtus, some alcohol. Lawnmower beer, not much more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle. A little overcarbonated and foamy for a pils. Four or five fingers of crisp, pillowy white head hangs above a furious inch of lightly hazed deep gold. Aroma is composed of blended straight malt and metallic hops. Rather classic and relatively clean. A few interesting yeast and alcohol notes create the sense of sugar complexity. Flavor is a mish-mash of well developed malt flavor, rich in toothy breads, and lemony sugars, followed by some dusty hop nuance and a kiss of alcohol sugars. Ever so slightly metallic. A nip sweet. Interesting beer. Decently flavored, but a bit of a mess. Worth a try and nice to drink. Finally, a crisp, gummy hop juice provides a nicely flavored balance in the backend.
