Light golden color with a modest hear and average carbonation in the mouth. Not much aroma.

This has an odd resiny taste that is hard to place. Slight bitter aftertaste. Slightly perfumey. Sweet straw flavor with an overripe fruit flavor, now that's the weird part. Sticky. A hit of something like sweet Vermouth. Artificial flavor watermelon hard candy.

This is pretty much the reason Blonde Ales don't get much respect. And I don't think this is a very good example of a style that sometimes surprises on the upside. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and biscuit flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but doesn't seem all that well done for a pilsner that the label is describing.

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass (only glass avail.)...

A: Pours a golden color with a frothy head the disappears quickly leaving some residual lacing. I thought it looked quite carbonated in the glass.

S: Not as much as I expected. Some very light hops and maybe malt and citrus. Tough to tell (my nose is still learning).

T: Light taste, not near as much flavor as I was expecting... some hops, malts and a few other minor, unidentifiable tastes coming through. Nothing special but decent enough to finish with thoughts of having another. It drinks easy and went down smooth.

M: Light to medium with a lot less carbonation than I expected. I detected a dry finish and little residual flavor.

O: Not the best, not the worst I've had. In my mind this one is a middle of the pack offering of the style and no one should be offended if someone offers you one. Makes me interested in seeing what else Mammoth Brewing has to offer. The term "summer beer" comes to mind with this one. Cheers!
