2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden with small dissipating off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, fruity (berry), light toffee, light grassy. Taste is mildly sweet and malty up top, lightly toasty, some apricot fruitiness, before finishing with a combination of grassy/earthy bitter and fruity sweet. Also some toffee as it warms. Medium body, fairly acidic/carbonated, though not especially crisp.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very pale, sparkling clear, straw-colored lager. Small, fizzy, quickly dissipating head.
The aroma is bisquity and chicken brothy. A tad floral.
Well- bittered for a pilsner. Lightly citrusy with a touch of honey.
Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, clean finish.
I’d continue to pass on this one while at the beer market.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark gold with a big white fizzy head. Aroma of hops, citrus, malt. Tastes hoppy, malty, with some citrus at the finish. Medium palate. Medium to light palate, with a smooth, crisp finish. I think this one is very underrated.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at the Pyramid Alehouse across the street from Safeco after the Mariners game. Has a light golden appearance with just a little bit of head. The aroma has a bit of a sweet honeyness to it. Very refreshing light hoppy flavor with some undelying honey sweetness. Good solid moutfeel. Good domestic Pils.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, moderate density of tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Dirty metallic flavor kills another Pyramid beer.
