4/5 rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear, slightly hazy, golden orange - a genuinely golden gold when held to the light - fizzy white head, leaves a few spots of lacing
Smell: Bready, grainy, pale malts - intentionally mild - some spiciness from the yeast, works very well - lightly grassy, with some light, sweet citrus - floral notes - lightly sweet
Taste: Pale grains and pale malts - a vague hint of toasted grains, nice malts overall - spicy lager yeast - mildly grassy (in a remarkably clean way) - some sweetness, some light hints of citrus
Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of light, could actually be a bit more crisp, nicely carbonated, nicely drinkable
Overall: Easily the best thing I've ever had from Sixpoint
This is a lovely pils. Very clean and very drinkable. It is definitely reminiscent of a German lager, but it has some serious American influences. I could drink a lot of this.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: can
