12oz bottle into standard pint glass. best by 8/21/14, so rolling the dice a it here.

Poured a clear crisp yellow with a big frothy head. Decnet cabonation and lacing.

Aroma was slightly sweet with ( lager?) yeast overtones

Sweetness came through right away, some grassiness as well. Slightly sour note in the back of the mouth, but that didn't hang around. clean, crisp, not harse at all. Seems to hold up very well.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bright yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is grassy, malts, grains. Taste is smooth, malty, grains, grassy hops at the finish providing a mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and highly sessionable beer.

Pours a crystal clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma and taste is sweet fruity notes, yeast, grains, some malt. Palate is a light to medium body, crisp clean refreshing mouth feel. The finish is sweet malt, fruity mild citrus, yeast and bread with a mild hops on the end for balance. This is good refreshing mild brew for a hot summer day.

Thanks Richard and Alanna

A: Light amber in color, with a large white head on the top. Fairly clear.

S: Grainy with light herbal notes. Slightly fruity.

T: Light, with floral and herbal notes. Fairly clean, with a slight hop flavor in the finish.

M: plenty of carbonation, fairly light in body, with a bit of a bitter cling in the end.

O: Overall pretty enjoyable. Clean, crisp, refreshing and enjoyable. Not the greatest pils in the world, but pretty darn good.
