Enjoyed a fresh tallboy can with chicken fajitas.
A: Pours a slightly golden-straw color with ample bubbling. One-finger slightly-off-white head with fair retention gives way to thin but persistent lacing.
S: Above all else, extremely fresh. Light bready malts with faint lemony hops. Lager yeast is evident but smells to be of a foreign strain. Reminiscent of drinking fresh lagers in Germany.
T: Bready malt becomes sweeter over time and is well complemented by a citrusy hop bite. Dry, lager-yeast finish. Hint of saffron. Extremely fresh.
M: Carbonated well. Lots of zing but slightly thin-bodied. Warming alcohol at end is pleasant and mild. Very sessionable.
O: I seldom reach for a lager, but this is an exception. The evident quality of ingredients and hoppy twist make this a new favorite for this IPA-lover. I will be going back to this again and again.

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.
