3.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

The beer pours a pale yellow with a huge head of egg-shell white bubbles. The head mellows to a rocky terrain and sits approximately a finger’s width above the glass. As the head fades, it leaves fluffy, string-clouds of lacing. In body, the beer is clean and clear, except for a slight haze that clouds the other side of the glass. Constant streams of tiny bubbles can also be seen feeding the aggressive head of the beer. On the nose, the beer smells superbly hoppy, moving from fresh cut grass (hence the name) to juicy citrus, lemon peel, and even a ghost of herbal mint. On the tongue, the beer tastes decidedly bitter up front with a nice, mellowing, bready sweetness moving in with the middle and finish of the sip, though not balancing out the beer. The bitters taste decidedly grassy, with only hints of citrus coming through. Acidity is light in the mouth, but does give the beer a faint pop, as well. In flavor, the beer begins as bitter, fresh cut grass and pine, this moves into brief grapefruit before the crackery malt flavors start to balance out the sip. The finish is of bitter grass, grapefruit pith, and just a touch of salinity. In the mouth, the beer feels on the heavy side of light in body, with a smooth and creamy carbonation, definite effervescence, and a mouthfeel that is crisp, smooth, and slightly prickly. The mouth is left dry and astringent once the beer has left. Overall, this is an aggressively bitter beer, which I both appreciate and wish for a little less of. They captured the flavor of fresh cut grass rather well, but the astringency is a little too high, and the pilsner malt character is a little too light for my taste in the style. This is a good hoppy pilsner that should appease many a hophead, but as far as the style goes, it is a bit unbalanced.

This is a very good beer. It poured the hazy pale yellow with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent carries a gin like flare with touches of mild pine and hints of citrus. The taste has a great Czech pils base with a neat pine/gin twang. The mouthfeel is m3edium in body with good carbonation. Overall I am really enjoying this beer.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured grassy herbal hops and a biscuity pils malt.

The flavor was round and delicate as it should be with a springy herbal hop and moderately chewy pils malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a gentle carbonation.

Overall a very well made and tasty pils.

Another fantastic release from Peak Organic up in Maine!

This beer pours beautifully, with a couple inches of thick but lacy foam. The appearance is a pale, sunny, yellow with a slight cloudy haze of goodness. The nose is pleasant. Slight biscuit and floral notes are present. The head remains intact and present as I drink this. Nice.

As a dry hopped pilsner, there is more initial bitterness than from your typical Czech style. But this beer remains very smooth and clean, the hop notes fade nicely into a tasty lager body. Slightly piney, Saaz hop hints. Did I mention it is smooth? Subtle fruit notes follow on the clean aftertaste.

Overall, I really enjoy this spring release. More complex than some of the traditional offerings in this style, courtesy of the dry hop process. But in spite of that it remains true to the crisp and clean pilsner style. Highly recommended.

There's a very earthy, grassy taste. It leaves a tingly feel on the tongue. There's a sugary candy taste, powdery grape. A very mild hoppy bite. It has a good taste, but there's a strange sugary undercurrent that cuts a bit much.

The color is a dull straw gold, semi-opaque, with a good foamy white head and some lacing. A bubble here and there. Very, very weed-like scent. Strong and lovely.
