3.86/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A-light yellow. Has a haze. Nice stable white head

S-aged grains. Slightly tart. Very herbal. Some lemon grass. Medium strength

T-comes in with a sharp and aged taste of bitter lemon grass and grains. Very herbal. Doesn't taste quite right really. Seems to have a bunch of off flavors if this is supposed to be a pilsner. It's definitely a crisp beer though! Not bad, just unusual for a pilsner and has an aged aspect in the taste. Matching after-tase.

M-medium carbonation with a nice dry finish

O-it's an okay beer, reminds me more of an herbed/spiced lager than a pilsner. Maybe it's just not fresh. Still an easy and fun drinker though.

Serving type: on-tap

3.15/5  rDev -19.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

16 oz can served in a nonic glass.

Pours light amber in color with a good head that has decent retention and some lacing. Little in the way of rising carbonation bubbles for style. Poor clarity.

Aroma: mixed grains, soft fruits and herbal hops.

Flavor: Fruity for style.

Feel: light body and medium-low, too low, carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O: a decent pilsner, but compares poorly to the SN/Firestone Walker Beer Camp Torpedo Pilsner that preceded it.

Serving type: can

3.3/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a pale amber colour, with slight bubbling. Head is white, a bit thin but decent. Lace is OK. Nice enough.

Smells weird. Honey and boot polish. Sweet, oaty bread. Bit funky. Odd.

Taste is quite bready, yeasty. Dry, with some rubber notes and more honey, and a touch of oat. Some crisp apple, but not much else crisp or really fresh. OK though.

A bit of texture. Bit of body. Still a bit stodgy for a lager.

Nice enough, but could be crisper for something called 'the crisp'.

Serving type: on-tap
