Had this on tap at The Stable. Nice golden color with a fair amount of head. This really had a yeasty and grainy smell to it yet the taste was crisp. Very breadlike. Nice body and almost no aftertaste, which is surprising for a high ABV beer. While not y favorite style this is pretty good.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brew pub in Newport.

Poured a crisp very see-thru light golden color, 1 1/2 finger head that stuck around for a little bit. very active carbonation. Smelled of grain, yeast. Tasted very refreshing, very easy to drink. Medium bodied but fairly big for a pilsner. I would love to find this again.

Murky gold with a small, creamy white head that leaves pretty heavy lace

Smell is pretty hoppy, citrus, and sweet, a bit like a BSPA or saison .

Taste is good, there is a bit sour citrus hop bite that is much more DIPA like then amped up noble hops of a pils. This makes it more like a DIPA brewed with a lager yeast rather then a big pilsner. Still, it's tasty, clean yeast and alcohol, not to bitter, well made. It actually reminds me a lot of a Belgian DIPA I made with Centennials and a saison yeast.

Mouthfeel is oily, dry, spicy. Hops and alcohol, in case you didn't guess.

Drinkability is good, I really love this beer. It's really different then most IPs, but I did that it's so p-town style...way better then Morimoto's.
