12oz bottle poured into... well, a short plastic shaker glass. Sometimes you need to improvise? Huge thanks to madvermin for setting me up with this; first craft beer I've had in weeks.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow, with tons of carb bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Two fingers of frothy white head; while it doesn't retain for a particularly long time, there's a good amount of lacing (so my below average glass was beer clean, at worst).

S: Lots of grassy hops here; very green smelling, crisp and fresh. Pleasant malty sweetness breezes through to balance the aroma.

T: Not to overemphasize balance in light of this beer's good flavor, but balance is all I can think about here. Flashing back and forth from bitter to sweet (with bitter just winning out in the end), this is a beer that I want my mouth to hold on to for a while. The hop flavors are strong enough that my first impressions of the flavor quality are of grass and herbs, but a strong, biscuity backbone is hugely noticeable as well. Incredibly strong flavor for the style, and greatly appreciated.

M: Thin-bodied, moderately carbonated, smooth on the way down, with a crisp and mostly dry finish.

O: Good, enjoyable pilsener- hard to spot flaws here. Pick it up if you get a chance.
