Thanks to cesky for including this in a trade.

Pours light golden yelllow with a thin head that is pretty well-retained. Thin rings of vanishing lace stick to glass.

The smell is grassy/grainy/floral, a bit doughy.

The taste is better than the nose, but not quite enough to lift the score. It is grassy/grainy - very well-balanced - floral, lemony contintental-type hops and earthy/nutty maltiness work well together.

The feel is creamy, yet crisp.

This is a well-made brew. A tradtional pils that has been pumped-up. Drinkable despite alcohol notes.

Having enjoyed this one immensely in the past (if memory serves), I was still leary of picking up the new $10/4packs (previously $9/6packs), although I eventually did due to an upcoming trade. Poured a crisp golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aromas of slightly floral hops, biscuit and pepper. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, with flavors of hops, biscuit and a slight pepperiness.

White gold with loose snowy froth that sets and leaves whisps. Honey on cream crackers and wildflower and grass nose.
Butter, lemon curd, musk melon and country loaf cut by big lemongrass and aniseseed hops.
Citrus zest bitter, slight soap and licorice linger. Medium verging towards full, chewy, round, burny aftertaste, sticky.

Chewy body, herbal hops, syrupy malts, and a kick - nails the style. Can't drink more than one, but shouldn't anyway. Cloys a bit; hops could clean up a bit more, but I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt and put that down to age (labelled 5/26/11 - forums tell me that's a best-by date.)

Thanks goes out to bort11 and raverjames for this brew.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow color, nice carbonation, tiny fizzy white head, with some minimal sticky lacing. The nose is hoppy, with some malts, grapefruit, with some spice. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrus, and some spicy. Medium body. Drinkable, this is a pretty tasty brew.
