Third taste of Archibald. After Ciboire and La Joufflue, I feel very good about this brewery. Also, two days ago, I was just thinking about how I would like a good local canned Pilsner. So I guess it's looking good.
A- Super clear gold. Nice. Something different about the head. Quite airy, a bit like it's made of creamy soap bubbles. Okay retention. Good but small lacing.
S- Oh! Lots of honey! Combined with the breadiness, it kind of smells like a honeybun.
T- Hopiness is grassy and kind of woody which seems kind of strange for the style. I love Pilsners with American hop profiles but this really doesn't fit. More of a pale ale or blonde or something. Some typical Czech pilsner bitterness though.
M- Very smooth for the style. Not nearly as crisp as others Pilsners. Medium body.
D- Very good. Not as much as other pilsners but still good.
Pretty good beer. Only thing is, I don't want all this honey and north amercian hop grassiness when reaching for a Pilsner.

Bottle: Poured a yellow color lager with a quite big pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light floral malt with sweet undertones is pretty tames though exclusion of any adjunct notes is welcome. Taste is also a refreshing mix between some light floral notes with a lightly sweet tone and some light dry hops. Again, no adjunct were detected which is quite satisfying. Additional hops presence would have been welcome though still a refreshing drink overall.

A- Clear golden-lemony yellow. Weak white head.
S- Very little smell. Some faint citrus notes.
T- Flash of bitter up front that then lingers into the aftertaste. Grainy middle with some citrus notes. A bit watery.
MF- Medium light body. Somehow not as crisp as I would prefer.
D- OK but nothing worth paying premium prices for. Not all that much more interesting than certain macros.
