Best by 5/8/15

Pours light straw colored yellow. Minimal head. Somewhat hazy

lemongrass and spice in the nose. A hint of lime. Somewhat farmhouse smell.

taste is grassy with the hint of lime picked up in the nose. A touch of bitterness and rounded out with a bit of a sweet green tea taste. A bit of American citrusy hops become somewhat apparent halfway thru.

Light bodied as expected with moderate to high carbonation. Crisp, dry, and really clean finish.

Kind of new to this style but I really like this one. Works great in these hot humid summer days. a lot of flavor packed in to this beer but maintains a light refreshing body. Well done once again by the boys from Sixpoint. Seek this one out!

Can with a best before date of May 2015 (drinking in July 2014).

Beer has a typical pilsner head. Beer has a wonderful aroma of hops. Strange because they actually smell more like American IPA hops vs. the usual European Noble variety. The taste is excellent for a pilsner. Very hop forward with maltiness balance. A little over hopped perhaps but a tad more balanced than say, Prima. Overall I thought this was one of the better pilsners out there and a high quality brew from SixPoint.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Pours amber with a large, fading, white head.
Nose shows hay, spicy hops, grassy notes and light grainy malt.
Flavours are very hop-focused. Big spicy, floral, citrus-y and grassy notes. Little else. Some light malt. Assertive bitterness.
Nice high carbonation.
