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.

Poured into a tulip glass.
Bottle date: July 07, 2014
Pour date: August 18, 2014

APPEARANCE: pale, honey yellow with a tall 2 inch white, foamy head. Beer shows some sediment and cloudiness. Honeycomb lacing around walls of glass, and head reduces to a little puck in the middle.

SMELL: smells like fresh pine and wet pants with a nice mellow grain.

TASTE: I'm getting lemon-drops, grass, and pine needles. Very well-balanced; neither the hops, grains, or malts overpower. This beer I'd say is aromatically hop-shifted, while the flavor is grain-shifted. Great level of bitterness - makes for a crisp finish. All the flavors dissipate together linearly.

FEEL: pretty bubble and burp-inducing. Not a very filling beer, fairly thin-bodied, but the big flavor makes up for it.

BURP: very pleasent
