On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a standard shaker pint glass.

Appearance: A clear pale golden orange with a fair amount of bubbles. A solid two fingers of white head that slowly recede into a thin patchy layer. Lacing is pretty light.

Smell: A good mix of sweet bready malts and citrus esters. Pale barely malts with some hints of crackers and biscuit. A pretty big citrus hop scent for a lager. Big hints of lemons and orange, as well as a little grapefruit and mango. Pretty hop forward for the style.

Taste: Like the nose indicates, a big citrus hop taste that is backed up by some solid Pils malts and yeast. Big taste of lemon and orange. Also some mango apricot, and grapefruit. Has a big enough malt presence to remind you its a Pilsner. Barley malts with notes of biscuit cracker, and hay. The Hallertau hops really shine. By far the most hoppy pilsner/lager I've had.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and creamy. Bitterness is fairly subtle but the hops have a nice drying effect. Alcohol is masked well.

Overall: A really nice take on a double Pilsner. The citrus esters are outstanding. Great use of hops to take a Pils to another level.

Serving type: on-tap
