A straight-ahead German Pils that does the trick very well on a hot summer day. Pours nearly clear light gold, just a touch of chill haze, with a big and fluffy white head that settles slowly and leaves lovely lacing on the glass. A great looking brew. Aroma is surprisingly bitter; lots of noble hops in the nose; flowers and grass; bready Pils malt.

Taste follows the aroma closely; lightly toasted bread with an assertive grass and floral hoppiness; lesser herbal notes; moderate malt sweetness but quite dry in the finish; nicely lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

Medium to slightly light bodied; crisply carbonated; just a super refreshing, clean drinker. Very tasty indeed.

16 oz can poured into a pilsner glass.
5.4% ABV, 42 IBUs, 5.9 SRM, Best before 03DEC2012 on bottom of can.

A - I've never seen anything like it! The clear, deep golden yellow beer seems lifeless until further inspection; tiny bubbles seem to materialize out of nowhere right near the surface and quickly feed the tall off-white head. Spotty lace decorates the glass as the foam falls.

S - German noble hops really brighten the aroma as it flourishes with light citrus notes supporting a spicy, earthy zest that encourages repeated, deep whiffs. Pale and pilsner malt blend for a mildly sweet backing that promises body and drinkability. Delectable smelling!

T - Simple pale and pilsner malt are combined for a biscuity, subordinate balance which allows the hops to really be showcased here. Like the aroma, citrus notes of lemongrass support the bigger spice and herbal attributes the noble hops offer.

M - This beer lives up to it's name with it's crisp body and clean bitterness along the finish, once again, provided by the noble hop varieties. Medium-light bodied but definitely avoiding being "thin", bright carbonation, light sulfates in the water, and a dryness that lingers on the tongue really come together for a crisp and clean pilsner.

O - The Crisp from Sixpoint is a very clean and drinkable brew with plenty of spicy, herbal hop characteristics balanced out but simple malt and lagered for a delicious and refreshing outcome; it's an exemplary American-brewed German style pilsner!

16 oz pounder poured into a pint glass.

Pours a clear yellow color with two huge fingers of foam. Bubbles rush to the top of the glass vigorously and violently. Aroma is full of noble hops.

First sip is clean, pleasant, with a big hop flavor in the finish. Nice earthy hop tones, minimal sweetness. This is a pilsener on hop steroids... quite refreshing on a hot July day.

Another success from Sixpoint - the hops turn this from another bland lager into a flavorful, refreshing treat. Would get again.
