I am sold! And I'm disappointed that this exceptional pilsner doesn't have a higher ranking compared to the other sub-par offerings on this list.
Unlike some of its regional cousins (who shall remain nameless), this pilsner could actually pass for a German import. Its light, crisp flavor stand in stark contrast to the proliferation of over-hopped or sickly-sweet pilsners that other regional craft breweries have produced. All too often these days, craft breweries throw "imperial" or "double" on the end of a beer style, in order to cover their defects with alcohol. But not this beer.
Six Point has crafted a relatively modest (in alcohol content) session pilsner that's exceptionally quaffable and deserves a higher ranking among the "big" craft breweries and their mediocre lager offerings.

4.98/5 rDev +27.7%
Appearance: Clear but very golden with a bright and lightly frothy white head. Upon thining out some good lacing is left behind.
Aroma: Biscuity, light grain, pear, the citrus notes are spot on. Light bready malts with a twinge of dryness in the nose.
Taste: Very crisp mouthfeel that has a great citrus bite and even a dam good dry finish. Notes of pear, biscuit, grapefruit, piney, wisps of bready grain. In the back there is a little bit of a buttery texture that tops it off.
Notes: Dam this German Pilsner is tasty in other words it's freaking remarkable. The dry finish is incredibly spot on. Oh yeah and one other thing I wanted to mention it's a Lager oh hell yeah. Cheers.
