look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Cloudy golden color with a 2F head in a Pilsner glass.

The aroma isn’t strong:earthy, citrus.

Excellent MF: full body, just the right amount of carbonation.

Taste: one of the most pronounced in a Pilsner I’ve tasted. Citrus and lemon.

Finish: crisp and hoppy.

Notch is one of best American brewers of the Czech Pilsner style. A great choice for a go-to beer.

On-tap at Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co., Boston, MA

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a faint amount of visible carbonation. It poured with just a thin white head.
S: Moderate aromas of pilsener malts and floral hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of pilsener malts with notes of floral hops and a light amount of associated bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't overly flavorful but it is easy to drink and can be considered as sessionable.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Bit Bar in Salem, MA.

This one pours a slightly dark straw yellow, with a small foamy head, and lots of lacing.

This is slightly minerally, with a crisp floral aroma and bready malt.

This is very simple, but very pleasant. There's a crisp mineral feel to it, with light grassy and floral hops, a very light sweetness, a solid doughy and bready malt backbone.

This is light bodied, crisp and very nicely clean, with a very high level of drinkability.

Notch continues to very much impress me with their mastery of session beers.

Pale gold and clear with a slim finger of head... aromas were mild, suggestive of grain and grass... flavors were similarly mild with very little bitterness... light and appropriately carbonated...

There are much better Pilsner beers available. This is the third beer from Notch that ai have tried and I am not a fan. This beer lacks flavor. No hop taste.

Poured from the can at The Burren. Looking for low-ABV for weeknight music. Got it, but flavor is nothing special.
