2.63/5  rDev -25.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a pilsner: Kind of a pale golden-orange, a little darker than I'm used to in a pils, under half-a-finger of soft, meringue head. Hazy, with moderate, tiny, slowish nucleation. Head drops to a thick coating & clings to the sides.

Spicy hops in the nose at first, a little peppery. That yields a bit to allow some sweeter notes in: a fruity, cidery quality, & a kind of concentrated sugar sweetness, almost like a jam or apple butter. Interesting, if a little unexpected. I've said "Mmm" a few times on sniffing this, so that's gotta count for something.

"Mmmm" turns to "Hmmm" with the taste: The hops are still spicy, but there's a really dry, seltzer kind of bitterness with it. What's strange is that it's followed by a kind of salty/savory character that reminds me of turkey cold-cuts, interestingly enough. Some darker, kind of bread crust flavors in there, along with that just sort of errant sweetness. Gotta say, this is a little weird - a less-than-diplomatic descriptor would be "sweaty". Aftertaste is rough: really bitter & again a bit meaty & salty.

Seems a little full-bodied for a pils, too - not as crisp & light as I'd expect.

Boy, this started off promisingly enough, but some bizarre stuff going on in the taste. If I just swallow it fast without scrutinizing, it's not nearly as off-putting (still strange, though), but the aftertaste is still a minus. I've definitely had better from Full Pint.

3.03/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a standard pint glass, straw color, transparent; offwhite head that laced nicely; ok carbonation.

Smell is more malt, less hop bitter, but slightly grassy. malt is sweet, not a crisp pilsner scent.

Taste is mildly bitter, crisp hop notes, malt is sweet hard to distinguish the pils flavor.

Mouthfeel is a touch to sweet without good bitter balance.

Overall, another west of east PA Pilsner that misses the marck when stacked against the true Czech pilsners; it is a tasty brew just not quite to pils quality.

3.13/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured a light straw gold with a small white head that quickly faded, light lacing.

Aroma of sweet malt, gain and light hops.

Taste of sweet malt, bread and a very slight hop bitterness.

Mouth Feel was light leaning medium body, good carbonation, light and slightly crisp.

Overall an average Czech pilsener, refreshing just not as crisp as I like Pilseners to be.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden-yellow color with a one finger white head. The head persists fairly well, leaving an only very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is of a grainy malt and some aromas of a light caramel smell. Mixed with these smells are some aromas of a lemon and grassy nature.

Taste – The taste begins on the drier and breadier maltines side with a light level of caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances some lighter grassy and herbal flavors come to the tongue while a light citrus hop comes as well. In the end, a little bit of a skunky flavor and some flavors of more malty and herbal nature come to the tongue to produce and leave a crisper taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the lighter side with a carbonation level that was rather average. Appropriate for the style as it made for a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – Nothing too special here. Decent but nothing too great.

RumpelPilsen has a bright golden body with a good bit of carbonation bubbles moving around. The short head is white and quite creamy looking.

The aroma has a lot of pale malt to it, with cracker and grain being featured. Saaz hops are pretty noticeable, with some lemon and grassy scents.

The flavor once again has a lot of clean pale malt. Lightly sweet with cracker and a good bit of grain. The saaz hops are pretty moderate in power, with lemon, grass and some lemongrass flavors along with a good amount of bitterness. One thing I don't like about this beer I swear there are more than just saaz or even noble hops in here. I pick up just a bit of citrus that is pretty bitter. Although the out-of-place hop is subtle at first, after a while I have trouble focusing on anything else.

I feel the bitterness on my tongue a little bit, but the body and carbonation are appropriate for a pilsner.

The hop profile bothered me a bit, as I don't like American-style hops in my pilsner. I really wonder if I ran into a problem with the way my beer was served that somehow added that flavor. It's possible.

12oz bottle: This one pours a slightly hazy, straw yellow color. There was a HUGE white head on it. The aroma is OK, and a little light. A bit of malts, grassy hops, lemon and a faint hint of spices. The taste is good. Notes of the lemon, malts and spices. Very little (almost none) bitterness to it. A pilsener should have a bit more than this one. Still a good beer overall.

RumpelPilsen

Pours a bright clear yellow in color, soapy white foam, little lacing. Aroma is light, bready malts and some grassy hops. In the taste, mellow bitterness on a crackery malt body. Simple and true. Light bodied. Decent enough. Was great to wash down a sandwich.
