Well, I had high hopes based on favorable reviews for Peak Organic's Fresh Cut Pilsner. I bought two bottles last night. It's supposed to be a Czech pils, but...not really. Another over-the-top hoppy lager. The nose and taste both are wonderful, if you want an IPA. Dominated by fresh grapefruit, making it hard to find the malt in this beer. Even the color is off, as it looks like a partially hazy golden lager....at least the slight haze part they got right.

I assume this is what they were aiming for though, with a name like "Fresh Cut." Hop heads who want a hop-forward low abv beer that's crisper than an IPA will love it. Pilsner fans will not.

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

On-tap 10/15/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a good hops bitterness for the style. Then some breadiness comes in from lager yeast and a hearty malt character, but there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are better options in the style.
