3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy pale gold with a rapidly receeding 2 inch white head. Some lacings, mostly at the top. Aroma is well skunked.
Taste is grass, lemon, noble hops, some minerals. The minerals leave a bit of iron on the back of the tongue. Overall a very tasty organic Pils. Quite sessionable too.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very nice pilsner. It is gold with a big white head slowly shrinking to a wispy top and hint of lace. The aroma isvery nive, with honey, flowery grain, bread crust, herbs and a hint of citrus. The taste is a bit light and not overly hoppy but nice, flavourful, and well-rounded with hay, herbs, bread, flowers. Overall, it tends to remind me more of a Czech-style rather than a German pilsner due to the greater range of body and flavours and the weaker hop character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Slightly hazy light golden pour with a fluffy white head. The aroma has some biscuity pilsner malt, light dough and peppery/straw hop notes. Mild carbonation in the light body. Flavor is simple with a dried biscuity pilsner malt base. A bit seedy with light sweet bread and a grassy hop character in the finish. Simple, but decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle purchased at Belmont Station--Poured a mostly clear straw golden body with a mild creamy white head. Sweet, Hallertau hops biting, crisp refreshing pils body. Like other reviewer said: "pronounced hoppiness" is a valid description. Mild skunkiness and creamy, flavorful finish.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Very zippy, very much foam. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Starts spicy and modest malty, the finish is like wheat. Very drinkable and good beer!

Bottle green, 330 ml
Appearance: Pours citrusy yellow, very light, typical for edel pils style, carbonation is vivid and intensive, body texture is slightly hazy, head is snowy white, frothy, rather small but firm, long lasting, there is a very good lacing.
Aroma: Well pronounced hoppyness, slight positive good Pilsener like skunkyness, strong and fresh citrusy notes, pronounced mild grainy touch without unbalanced sweetness, very fresh, interesting and inviting aroma. Some mild creamy - milky notes and cardboard.
Flavour: Mild, slightly bitter, mineral, tastes like a Classic German Pilsener with the lower percentage of extract of wort, so watered down by a good quality refreshing mineral water, soft, clean, easy going, slightly malty - grainy touch. Finish duration is medium.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is medium, finish feel is clean with slightly chalky - grainy- bitter touch.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as Organic Pilsner from Ledgers. Orange tinged golden color with a fine white head. Nice nobel hop aroma. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is mildly sweet with a fair amount of grassy/herbal hop. Finish is bready/hoppy. Spice/pepper notes. I could use more hop, but there’s enough. Very good for German, almost approaches Bohemian.
