4.25/5  rDev -0.5%

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. BOTTLED 09/30/2014.

Appearance: Pours a golden body with a thin white head.

Smell: Light juicy hop and strong pilsner malt aroma.

Taste: Spicy hop flavor. Firm crisp bitterness. Sweet pilsner malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body, sharp bitter aftertaste.

Overall: Not at all what I was expecting. I was expecting a much juicier, tropical/citrus hop bomb. Bitterness is high, but body is light and crisp. Non of the classic ale fruitiness. If you told me this was a continental pilsner, I would have believed you.

Poured; golden body; small rim of head, light hoppiness with a tad bit of spice, malty, with an easy bitter aftertaste.
Excellent beer, a must try. I will now enjoy the rest of my beer, in peace.
