12 oz brown bottle - not dated

Little Bavaria filled my glass mug with a clear classic golden color and atop sat a 2-finger fluffy white head that held well. The nose has a floral aroma of fresh cut grass. The taste matches the smell with a dose of citrus and light hop bitterness at the finish. Mouth feel is light, crisp and clean. The carbonation is fine and very active.

Little Bavaria is an easy drinking German Pilsner. A good representation of the style.

Bottle marked 08:54 2164 SP at 42 degrees into shaker
$ 1.69/12 oz bottle at the Lager Mill
Aroma of grain
Head average (four cm, aggressive pour), white, creamy, diminishing to three mm ring and layer
Lacing fair – some frothy partial curtains and islands
Body light yellow, some chill haze
Flavor starts more sour than bitter but not a particularly pleasing sour, kind of spoiled. No hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

I see from the label that this was contracted to Stevens Point. Bad choice.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 2.5, Palate 4, Overall 3.5

Had as part of a flight at the brewery, pale yellow in color, soapy head and lacing. Aroma is muted, somewhat fruity. Taste is spicy and bready, with a kind of sweetness underneath. Crisp, clean feel. Decent

Edit: brought a couple bottles home from the brewery and totally forgot I'd had it before. Review stands as is.

Appearance - 3.5/5
A slightly hazy yellow orange. A small ring of head around the top of the beer. Visible carbonation is sparse.

Smell - 4/5
Bready, slightly fruity. Very fresh lager aroma.

Taste - 4/5
Sweet (more than I was expecting), slightly fruity, slightly hoppy, slightly bready.

Mouthfeel - 4.25/5
Slightly less full than medium body. Extremely crisp, with a moderate amount of medium-high intensity carbonation. I really love the crispness of this brew. The carbonation kick is nice as well. Not to overpowering, but still definitely a "kick".

Overall - 4/5
This seemed like a great example of a classic pilsener.
