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

3.55/5 rDev -8.7%

Poured into a tall pint glass: color is opaque gold/copper, head is bright white, presenting 1/2 inch thick then dissipating to a nice top; definitely more dense/murky than other pilsners.
Smell is light pils malts, then grassy hops, solid bitterness, light citrus and earthy notes.
Taste is crisp, definitely full of hops, though the subtle grassy flavors are prominent, some stronger citrus type flavors are noted with a strong drying, bitter finish; malt is pils and bread, subtle backbone type flavor. Earthy flavors are prominent as well.
Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonated and biting on the tongue, very drying, more so than other similar style pilsners.
Overall, this is seems to be close to a kellerbier in presentation with a heavy bitter pils take. As it warms up the flavors come through pleasantly, but the nose seems off and mouthfeel a bit overdone.
Serving type: can
