First review in a long while, it's good to be back.
Bought a four-pack of tallboys. It pours light and golden out of the can into my imperial pint glass. Thin, whispy head soon gives away to scattered patches of white.
The smell is evident upon popping the can open, and more so as it is poured. The hops are most striking, a blend of spicy and floral. There's something slightly sweet hidden in there as well.
Tastes crisp. Good carbonation helps the bready malts splash on the tongue. Again, hops are very prominent. Mild and flavorful, hints of grass and spice. Delicious.
I've had hundreds of new beers since my last review on this site, but this one has inspired me to come back and share my thoughts. A really enjoyable pilsner, and brewed locally (I'm in Brooklyn now), so I'm filled with pride. A wonderful beer.

3.55/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
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.
