Poured into a Czech Pilsner glass.
A: Light yellow color with one finger of head that fades quickly leaving light lacing. A ton of carbonation.
S: Pale malt, pepper, and hops.
T: Pale malt, hops, grapefruit with a citrus aftertaste. Taste of grapefruit lingers afterwards.
M: Light body mouthfeel which transforms with the bite of the hops. Semi-dry finish.
O: Mouthfeel is a little weak when the drinker is confronted with the fairly bitter hop character. The beer doesn't seem to have the malt backbone to stand complement the bite of the hops. There are certainly better Czech style pilsners out there. I am slightly disappointed by this one as I am usually very impressed by Sierra Nevada's brews.
