2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is grassy with no noble hops. Flavor of astringent hops that mask the malt. Malt flavor is grainy, simple and clearly not decocted. Rather underwhelming.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 2016-01-30. Yellow body, small white head. Aroma is oddly floral and grassy. Flavour is lightly bitter and quite floral, in a way I don’t care for unfortunately. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 5/3/5/3/12 Bottle shared by Sammy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a crystal clear, golden body with an inch or two of fluffed whitish froth.
Smell: A little bit toasty atop the pilsner malts, scantly buttery and everso hinting of sweetness with some dried herbal, floral tones and touch of lemony citrus.
Taste: A lightly toasty, pilsner-y maltiness with some touches of biscuit dough. Softly sweet with a small drip of golden syrup. Herbal, cheerfully flowery hops with an ample hop bite and tone of lemon segments. Finishes fairly clean, fairly crisp and with a little residual bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Foothills presents a nice, easy-going, refreshing brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light golden body with a frothy white head. Aroma of toasted grain, bread, straw, floral hops, herbs. Hint of corn. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Linger bitterness. Clean, crisp, balanced and solid in both taste and aroma. A pleasant surprise that left me wishing I had brought home more than a couple of bottles.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body under a one finger foamy white head that left a bit of lace. The nose is nice delicate Saaz hops over a clean bready pils malt base. The flavor has a nice crisp and clean Saaz hoppiness with a gentle bitterness. Very clean bready malt base that’s nicely dry. Light bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a lingering gentle hoppy finish. Pretty excellent Pilsner, can’t ask for much more than this, better than I was expecting.
