3.73/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
16oz can, pours a darker golden color with a fizzy white head that holds decent retention and leaves a little lacing on the glass. Aromas are fresh with pilsner malt, grass, yup - crisp. Tastes are, well, crisp. Pilsner malt, grassy, sharp hop bite on the finish. Mouth-feel is thin-to-medium, but sharp, crisp, and clean on the slightly drying finish. I had this one last week, but didn't give it a full review; then picked up another one yesterday when I thought I missed something when I saw the high scores it has received. I still think it's good, not great.

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.
