2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ Hostex: My due diligence warning - tasting this the day after King’s Pils at the brewery is probably not going to bode well for Stonehammer. Pours nice - vibrant yellow, good carbonation, with a bountiful marshmallow white head. Aroma is of fruit, perhaps apple, with malt. Flavour is very dry with adequate hoppy bitterness, and splashes of sweetness to balance things out. Quite accessible as a pale lager, but not terribly true to style.

bottle poured into footed pilsner glass. Golden yellow colour. Aroma and taste is dominated by straw, grains, cereals. Also some soft fruits. Too little hops for my taste. Ok beer, but nothing I would seek out.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This seemed like a bad ale to me not a Pilsener. Thin head. Malty, almost roasty aroma. Too sweet and lacking character.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A yellow, headless brew with sweet pilsner aromas of cereal, cut grass and malt. The thin and almost flavourless front and middle leads to a woody, bitter finish, and boasts refreshing qualities that bring to mind a mixed greens salad sans dressing. Light carbonation, coupled with a humid, hazy afternoon helps get this beer down in a hurry. The finish would turn off the swill-swilling masses, so you could haul a six-pack to the pool and feel confident in finishing what you’ve started.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle, 5% a/v
From the bottle, pours a very light, almost champagne/straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is malty, with hints at wheat, spice, and straw. The taste of the beer is a nice clean pils, a bit fruity, a little bit spicy on the finish, very nice flavour. Only problem is this beer is very watery.. it has a nice flavour, but theres just not enough of it.

Light blonde looks like any other pilsener, but has a reasonably complex and full flavour. Some malt and a nice refreshing finish.

Deep golden color with frothey white head. Clean, slightly grassy hop aroma and some biscuit. Flavor is crisp, with a hint of malty sweetness finishing with the mild hoppy bite. Yum

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours straw coloured with no head. Off aroma of grass and grain. Taste is some weird mixture of watered down malt and herbs.
