2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at The Fortune Teller Bar, served in a pint glass. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow-gold with a finger of white head that stays around for a while. Aroma of pils malt, crackers, grass, mellow pepper, and bread. The flavor starts about the same but wore me down. It became increasingly bitter and there was something off-putting about it; a little cheesy. Medium-bodied, heavy for the style, with medium carbonation. Not bad, but I wouldn’t want more than a sample size of this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale hazy yellow with a nice sized rocky head. The aroma has clean lightly bready pils malt, fresh cut grass and spice. Pretty well balanced aroma. Medium light body that is crisp, but has a bit of smoothness to it and has gentle carbonation for the style. Starts like the aroma, but a touch drier and more peppery spice. There is also a hint of mintiness that is probably something I’m getting from the hops. The finish show more of the grassiness and a tingle of spice stays on the tongue. A trace of sulfur peeks through at the end. Urban Chestnut should be required to always have a pilsner on tap. They do a fantastic job with them - another winner here.
