3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12-oz bottle. Pours a rich gold color that is brilliantly clear. A lot of carbonation bubbles rise up through this beer creating a frothy, rocky head that is initially four fingers thick but dissipates quickly. Fair lacing. Aroma is grassy with hay and butter notes on the side. I get a hint of aromatic lemon & herb scents. Sweet grains are also there. The taste is lightly sweet up front and fairly spritzy throughout from the ample carbonation. Bitterness dances above the sweetness and becomes stronger as the sweetness turns buttery. Medium body with an oily texture. Long bitter finish. This is one of my first pilseners, so it is hard to say how it fares against standards in the style. But I really like it and will drink it again.

Bottle from the Parcelyard, Leicester. Clean,flavoursome Pils, but slightly too sweet for me. Goodbye Champions League - it was a great adventure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 oz. pour, on tap at Nutmeg Arden Hills. Consumed on 3-10-17. Clear, pale gold with a small amount of beige head. Nice, floral aroma. Green grape and champagne scents. Pleasant, pungent hops in the smell. Good, refreshing, dry flavor. Wood chips. A bit of cardboard, which isn’t ideal. Dry finish, which I like. Lively and smooth in the palate. Reasonably crisp but not as crisp as it should be. Fizzy. Pretty good pilsner but just a touch off.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crisp, fresh pour on tap at Caddy’s in Beavercreek, OH.
Clear, light gold with quickly dissipating head. Nice floral hop aroma. Flavor is a perfect balance of crackery malt sweetness with a light readiness and elegant floral/spicy noble hops. Finishes with a medium bitterness. More like a strong German Pils than a Czech Pilsner, but outstanding beer when fresh and on tap!
