Served on tap at the OHB
This one was the most intriguing to me since it was either this or a Kolsch. The appearance was a nice golden color a touch deeper than you would expect for the style, but still nice. The aroma had that distinct bready pilsner smell but not much more than that. The flavor was surprisingly good. There was a robust malty note to the pilsner that you wouldn't expect. It wasn't as dry and crisp as would be traditional as well. There were some light citrus notes that I would have expected only came from the hops, but they all worked for good flavor profile. The mouthfeel was really smooth, something that this brewery seems to do rather well. Overall this was another winner from OHB, they make solid beers.

(Served in a American Pint glass)
A- This beer pours a clear slightly dense deep copper body with big bubbles popping to the surface where the head boils away even before it forms.
S- The aroma of sulfur is dry but light with a stale malt aroma to follow. Otherwise the smell is pretty clean.
T- The bitey dry hop bitterness has a hint of sulfur with some faint dry Pils malt with a touch of sweetness to it. The finish has a bitterness that lingers a bit. There is a light banana ester note that comes through when the beer opens. It remains light but it is still odd.
M- The light mouthfeel has no alcohol heat and a tight fizz.
O- The big bitey hop bitterness doesn’t really have any malt support except for a slight sweetness and the odd banana ester. The carbonation and bitterness makes it almost astringent. It was a bit hard to get through a bomber of this.
