3.6/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Slightly cloudy gold with active bubbles and no head. The smell is lemons, slight pepper, and sharp hops. The taste is lemmons, farmyard funk, and slight malt. It's slightly slippery and a bit thin. This one makes for very easy drinking. Its very balanced. You could make an afternoon of it & I intend to.

Serving type: on-tap

Wow, just keep coming back to this one. Poured into a shorty. Has a lively pumpkin glow. Inviting for sure. But what really makes it special is the citrus aroma. It's outstanding with every sip (or gulp). Non of the mustyness that comes with many pills. And the taste is exceptional. Scrimshaw takes you on a nice bright flavor ride before pulling back to a clean satisfying finish. Could drink this one all the time -- wait, i do!

Pleasantly surprised by this one. Clean drinking and tasting pilsner. Minimal lacing, clear golden color and barley aroma. Just like a pilsner should be. I could drink this one all day. Carbonation was a little on the fizzy side, but did not detract from the experience.

3.81/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with no haze, a moderate effervescence and a thin finger of creamy white foam. Not too bad.

Smell: lightly sweet malt aroma with a good grainy character and a nice dose of noble hops. Hops are a little herbal but not strikingly so; I think this is quite a good example of the style.

Taste: lightly grainy malt character with a lot less hops than the aroma. Bitterness is quite low. Not bad, but I would have really liked the flavor to track a bit more with the aroma.

Mouthfeel: light body with a very good carbonation and a very nice creaminess. Quite good for the style.

Overall: this is a nice, refreshing Pilsner. It's perhaps not as crisp as I'd like, but that is a bit more in-style to a German Pils rather than a Czech one.

4.3/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle, drank from a seidel. Drank at just above fridge temperature (45F?)

Appearance: Beautiful golden amber colour with plenty of luscious foamy white head. Visible carbonation. Probably couldn't get any better.

Smell: Sweet, delicious malt with lots of estery banana, berry, and other fruit flavours. A tasty and refreshing smelling floral hoppiness compliments the fruitiness. Amazing.

Taste: A little less prominent than the smell, but still solid. Light malt but complex hops. Very good example of the pilsner style.

Mouthfeel: Frothy and full feel, leaves a nice aftertaste, and no alcohol taste. Very smooth and satisfying, and refreshing as well.

Overall: Best pilsner I've had up to this point. Excellent session beer, tasty and refreshing especially in a warm summer evening. Very well priced as well.
