Too much pine, not enough pilz. Drinks more like a clean, hoppy wheat beer or IPL. Hops seem to be pretty "new world," not "noble" as noted in the description. The hops actually have a bit of that lemony, herbal Sierra Nevada quality. And of course, pine. Lots of it.

There may be a decent pilsner hiding somewhere beneath the piney hop haze, but it's impossible to tell. Any mention of "pilz" or "pilsner" on this beer's labeling is misleading. Not a bad beer, just not a great one.

This is my first time trying a beer from Sixpoint.
Came flying out as soon as I cracked open the can. But I caught it all in my goblet. Of course this resulted in a beautiful 1" foamy head. Typical aroma that you would expect from a German pilsener. Flavor wise there is nothing surprising here, it's just a very clean, refreshing pilsener. Very drinkable, went down very easy. Looking forward to my next beer from Sixpoint.
