Eh, probably not my favorite sixpoint brew to date. Prefer the likes of Resin, Sweet Action, and Bengali to this one. Here goes:

Edit: The beer is growing on me as I'm drinking it. I improved the taste score.

A: Pours cloudy yellow-orange with a decent head. The lacing is good but the carbonation is somewhat lacking.

S: Grassy hops, citrus and hay. Some biscuit as well. Not bad but pretty average relative to other pilsners (scents are a little muted).

T: Good. Follows the nose. Has a nice, crisp bite to it that makes it very drinkable.

F: Only drawback of the beer. Not carbonated enough, making the mouthfeel rather flat (especially compared to other pils).

O: Good beer. Not one of 6point's better offerings, though. Definitely prefer sweet action to it.

An excellent pilsner. I can't believe it took so long for me to try this. Clean pilz flavor with a nice hop presence, which is standard for sixpoint at this point. Will definitely become a year round in my fridge. Thanks sixpoint for another amazing beer that takes up little fridge space

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Straw yellow with a think white head and lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops and wheat/grassy notes

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine notes.

Overall: Ok brew. I would have again if I was offered.

12oz can provided as part of a “sample” (read: sixpack) by @sixpoint. An expiration date of “23 Sep 15” is stamped upon the bottom of the can.

Poured a somewhat chill-hazed golden amber color, with a big, long-lasting, sudsy white head. Lots of lace.

Soft, herbalish “Euro” hop scents are what floats up to the nose initially. As it warmed up a little there was a modest piney hop scent more reminiscent of those grown in the New World. The two hop worlds seem to meld together well.

Herbal and slightly peppery hop flavor hit the taste buds first. It’s restrained in the way a good pilsener tends to be. Likewise, a bready maltiness is present in the same way. Things end on a crisp, slightly dry note.

Fairly light bodied, with a crisp, clean mouthfeel.

Whether it’s the brewery or the BA, Sixpoint rocks! Unlike many American pilsener-style beers, this retains the classic feel and drinkability of an Old World example, but has some American hop character as well. Eminently drinkable, I could consume this all day. When the summer weather is here, I know I’ll miss having this on hand.

Pours a shocking bright golden color with slight orange hue. Tons of carbonAtion. Bright white fuzzy white head.
S- smells of malt, slight hop, busicuit, very refreshing smell.
T- hoppy pilsner in which bitter bite sticks. A lot of taste for a pilsner.
F - Not its best point. Not as refreshing as most pilsners.
O- Great taste for a pilsner, but mouthfeel not what expected in a pilsner.

Would be a 4+ if it was a light IPA but calling it a Pilsner doesn't seem right. Still.. great smell with an even greater taste.
