2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this one on draught as part of a sampler flight at the brewpub in Bollingbrook, Illinois. Clear and fizzy, medium yellow pour with a foamy, rapidly dissipating white head, dry mown hay and a bit of citrus are in the nose of an otherwise profoundly unintresting beer. Meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! Tap @ fest. Nose of sweet grain & yeast. Sparkling golden with frothy white head. The brew is toasty and somewhat spicy, very well balanced. The medium dry body is lively. The finish feels crisp.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent stuff. Draft at the Rockville, MD location. Firm rocky white head atop a clear golden body. Nose of earthy clean yeast and a moderate note of grassy saaz hops. Crisp and clean tasting, filtered, obviously, but still fresh enough and crisp enough to enjoy. Nothing too spectacular, just a run of the mill mildly sweet cereal grain flavor with a touch of buttered biscuits and saaz hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the Virgina Beach location. Yellow with a big white head. Nose is grassy and floral, with a grainy sweetness. Light to medium body. Flavor is more of the same, grainy sweet with a grassy bitterness. Solid but unspectacular.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is my favorite GB beer. All the great hop characteristics of a good pilsner are in this one...sharp aroma, bitterness and flavor. Very refreshing after a long day ;-)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Tap) Pours a golden color with little head. Little aroma. Taste is of sweet malts with a dry, crisp finish. Not particularly smooth, with a somewhat abrasive mouthfeel. OK, but not one of their best beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: This poured a bright golden body with lazy bubbling and a substantial white head that semed to paste the lacing to the sides of the glass. The aroma is honeyed bread with a firm grassy bitterness. Both sweet and bitter are well balanced in the flavor, the grassy bitterness lasting into the finish along with a light touch of lemon. Sessionable, especially with a cute mixologist tending to your needs.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale yellow and has good residual lacing that hangs the whole drink long. Aroma of malts and brisk hops. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Good balance w/ a good hop profile. Finish is bittered perfectly w/ citrus rind. A good session brew.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap at Virginia Beach location. Not suprisingly, this was pretty much like practically every other pilsners I’ve had. Crisp, grassy, and watery with a somewhat unpleasant finish. However, I thought this one was a better example of the style.
