My beer guru picked up a variety pack of Skyfox and this is one off the ones he left for me. No recommendation one way or the other so Not sure what to expect. Decent looking beer for a pils. Surprising taste, as a non fan of pils, I actually enjoyed this one. I have a couple more of Skyfox and I now have a little expectations. Good beer.

Bought a 12 pack sampler cans while on vacation at Delaware shore with best by date on bottom of 7/19/14 (drinking it on 7/11).

Has more of an orange IPA appearance than the normal yellow/straw color of other pilsners I've seen. Nice puffy head with lots of carbonation and great retention.

Has a very pleasant smell for a pils. German hops, grassy smell. Very nice.

Taste - Taste was a little off putting at first and not really sure what flavors I'm picking up here. Perhaps a sweet cracker kinda taste? After a few more sips, I've gotten used to this unique flavor profile on a pilsner and its sessionable. Has your typical dry/crisp finish for a pilsner. I'm really not picking up much of the typical Noble hop flavors in this one.

Mouthfeel is fine for a a cold summer beer.

Overall - Its a fine beer. Not the best flavor profile representative of the style, but is still a good summer brew and enjoyable.

Poured from the can into a pilsner glass, this beer was a hazy yellow color with a small white head.

Aroma mostly floral and grassy. There was a tiny bit of citrus, and an even smaller bit of spice.

Taste of lemon and grapefruit. Flowery. A bready background. There was some late pepper.

A hoppy and refreshing pilsner. Would drink this again.
