look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from the bottle into a pilsner glass. Body is dark golden, but when backlit it becomes more orangey - with a slight haze to it. Half-finger white head settles on top. A wee bit of lace is left behind on the glass.

S: Cereal grains and a fruity sweetness that seems out of place in a pilsner. Expecting some grassy hops and getting no hops whatsoever.

T: First impression is of the sweetness up front - fruity sweetness over cereal. Finishes with some hop bitterness, which lingers on the palate in the aftertaste. Overall impression is that this tastes more like a German lager than a Czech pilsner.

M: Modestly creamy - not the sharper carbonation I expect from pilsners, but the feel is good. Call it light-to-medium in heft, leaning towards the lighter end.

O: OK. Goes down pretty easy, with no "off" flavors. Still, it seems a little bland overall.

TGIF...first beer for the evening is the Peregrine Pilsner. The beer poured a hazy yellow with thin white head that is not lacing. The scent is slightly sweet with a corn meal flare. The taste is crisp and smooth....slight grass twang. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its drinkable but I would go out of my way to fiind it.

Not sure what to make of this one...

Pretty appearance, thick white head, slight orange tint.

Smell is about what youd expect, but with maybe a slight autumn citrusy hint...?

Taste is kind of boring.. Not bad, but it just reminds me of your typical American lager ...slightly cleaner and crisper though, with the little citrusy twist.

Thin mouthful which is confusing. I see the head, I see the bubbles, why dont I taste them? Feels a little too watery for me.

Overall it's not dissapointing, just not something really worth buying. In 3 days I will forget I ever even tried this beer.

3.83/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Straw yellow with large bubbles. Nice thin layer of white lacing around the glass.

Smell: Very fresh. Lots of grapefruit zest follows up mildly spicy caramel malt.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sour grapefruit and orange zest. A faint hint of pine in the background. A bit too bitter in the finish, but the mouthfeel is very clean and crisp.

Overall Drinkability: Refreshing light beer with IPA characteristics.

2.95/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Golden hue without a lot of foamy goodness - Poured into a pilsner glass .

Carbonation still has nice movement but bubbles are like Mr. Bubbles bath soap bubble... well perhaps I embellish for effect .

Smell: Very Faint, though I must admit I tasted/smelled after an IPA tasting.

Taste: Kind of muddled with and honestly, a bit bland.

Mouth-feel: Cool, carbonation, foam. A good mouth experience.

Overall: An OK pilsner. Left me feeling a little disappointed.
