3.8/5  rDev -0.8%
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.

A-pours a slightly cloudy straw color with a white sudsy head with good retention that leaves some lacing
S-lots of lemon, grassy,slightly herbal
T-tons of resin, pine, and grass with some citrus in the background
M-light and crisp, good amount of carbonation
O-not a subtle pilsner, more of an over hopped blonde ale. Tastes good but not real accurate of the style

4.13/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle to a pint glass.

A: Pale citrus-like grapefruit color with an impressively cloudy unfiltered appearance.

S: Good clean aroma commensurate with the pilsner style, with the addition of a fresh hop aroma from the "fresh cut". A very pleasing aroma and well balanced aroma for a pilsner.

T: Very good tasting pilsner with solid level of bitterness (typical for the style) and a nice level of flavor from the fresh hops present.

M: Good level of carbonation (higher) for the style, and well suited for the hot summer weather at hand.

Overall: This was an extremely impressive pilsner style beer, and one that really shines in the hot summer weather. Very refreshing overall experience, along with a nice cloudy pale citrus colored appearance. I am very much a hoppy IPA guy, but this is a GREAT BEER, very impressed.
