4.68/5 rDev +20%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance-Pours a Pilsener straight straw-yellow golden color with a fluffy head, lacing is sticky and abundant with dabs and dollops all around the glass as the head recedes to a thick white film. Lively carbonation prickles upwards from the bottom of the pilsener glass. Perfect.
Aroma-Big noble hop aromas of flowers and fresh cut grass followed swiftly by bready/doughy malt 'harmony' comes to mind, it's all superbly balanced.
Taste-Taste follows the nose with 'crisp' noble hop flavors leading along with prickly carbonation, plenty of herbal/grassy flavors abound with a touch of floral character. The bready malt character comes forward just in time to stop things from getting too one dimensional with complimentary notes of biscuits and dough and a light touch of sweetness to contrast the crisp bitterness/dryness.
Mouthfeel-'Crisp' is the perfecy word to describe this mouthfeel with ample carbonation and a light body that ends with a snap at the conclusion of each drink. Ultimately quenching and exactly what I expect from the best Pilseners.
Drinkability/Overall-Astounding, best Pilsener I've ever had; this is what all pilseners should aspire towards, amazing.
Notes-Ive had so many Pilseners ranging from Prima and Stoudts to authentic German imports but, to me at least; they all pale in comparison to this AMAZING offering from Sixpoint, easily the best thing they make and I intend to never be without it.

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.

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
