2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Functional label on a standard longneck. Clear, brilliant gold brew with a thin, webby white head. Not much remarkable about the aroma - just lagery and a little sunflower seed note. Frothy mouthfeel, light mineral notes, very light bittering. Flabby body overall after the initial swig. Some final bitterness at the end. This is just a whole lot of nothing - no reason to buy this instead of Bud. TJ’s, Tallahassee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, soft, snow white head, thin lacing. Aroma has some buttery accents, a touch of saffrron like spiciness. Classic pilsener flavor, a touch of bitter hoppiness, some bready maltiness, a touch of honey sweetness. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty decent and a great price at TJ’s ($1.17).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 12 oz. bottle from TJ’s. Poured crystal-clear golden orange with a dense, well-retained head. Nutty notes over light bready malts on the nose. The flavor is a bit of lemon and grass over soft bread and lesser caramel malts. Just enough bitterness to offset the sweetness. Pretty clean, well-balanced and tasty.

12oz bottle -
I’ve passed by this beer a few times at Trader Joes, however this time I went ahead and plunked down the money and got a sixer and I was quite happy I did. A clean, flavorful, classic example of a fresh pilsener. A nice malty, bitter walnut-like aroma mixed with some wet pine. Flavor is clean, dry, with a nice hay-like hop flavor with some cracker malt to help the balance. Solid beer and I can see several sixers of this being bought because the price is so right.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slightly cloudy yellow, soapy white head.
Grain, corn malt, vegetal aroma.
Taste is slightly sour grains....lackluster grassy bitter.
Didn’t seem much like a pilsner at all.
