look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: pours a very hazy golden body with a clumpy 1 finger off-white head
S: smell a great deal of strong grain, lemon...very spicy
T: absolutely perfect taste for the style, it stays true to the style in that it quenches and has drinkability but it has way more flavor than the average pilsner. high carbonation, taste a lot of grain and hops with lemony citrus on the back end
M: great carbonation which i expect from a pilsener..stays true to the style and is very crisp
O: best pilsener ever...sixpoint crushes everything they touch and this beer is no different...definitely give it a shot if ur skeptical about american takes on german pilseners, u will be pleasantly surprised.

The beer comes in a hazy golden color.

The aroma is a bit light with some gentle cracker malt and German hops of spice and herbs.

The flavor follows with a gentle light grainy backbone. The finish hits with tons of spice and a bit of lemon, almost as if there were rye in there. Lots of spicy notes along with herbal hops, instead of grass that pilsners usually have.

It's a light medium body with tons and tons of carbonation that compliments the spicy hops.

A competent attempt at a pilsner by Sixpoint.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Clear, deep golden in co;or , with a large, coarse off-white head, which retains quite well. The lacing is chunky and scattered, the carbonation is profuse.

Aroma: Opens with substantial, pungent noble hops, which dominate the aroma. Cracker malt is present as well, but the hops dominate the aroma.

Taste: Opens with substantial noble hop flavor. AS the taste progresses, solid bread and cracker malt notes assert themselves, but never eclipse the noble hops. AS the taste draws to a close, the hops dominate, without overpowering.

Mouth feel: Soft and full with soft carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A very well-crafted and drinkable, the hops seemed a trifle overdone.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard sixteen ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Serving type: can
