4.75/5 rDev +33.4%
Brilliantly engineered pilsner that is absolutely true to style and quaffable. Pours perfectly golden yellow with a nice head; perhaps a bit heavy on the carbonation but it does not defray from the mouthfeel. The beer starts with a bit of hop bitterness, transitions to a slightly malty sweetness then transitions yet again to a hop finish The combination of Pilsen malt and Saaz hops provides the perfect balance that is so difficult to achieve in this style. This beer must be poured from the miserable green bottles into a pilsner glass or a standard pint glass to achieve the aromatics and full taste profile. I will keep looking but there may not be a better pils. Thus, the "5" is still to be distributed and the hunt will continue...
