3.43/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

split 12oz in 2 6oz tasters with newk340
a-pale, pale yellow. dark lemonade. crystal clear. moderately bubbly. thin white soapy head dissipates quickly.

s-light sweetness with a slight spice

t-super crisp and clean. lemony spice, white pepper.

m-moderate carbonation. very crisp finish. very very light lemon pepper aftertaste lingers briefly.

d-not a big pilsner fan in general. this one is pretty good. wouldn't probably buy it again, mostly since i don't typically choose pilsners. sn does good work none the less.

Serving type: bottle

3.46/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz. can into a Sam Adams lager glass

A - What a crystal clear body! A pale wheat color with a bubbling white head.

S - Cracked white pepper, straw, and honey.

T - The initial taste is dominated by an earthy spiciness from the noble hops. The malt lends a saltine cracker or plain Cheerio character. The finish has a touch of lemon with more spice.

M - Thin body with a seltzer-like effervescent carbonation.

O - A decent choice for a lawnmower brew, especially since it now comes in cans. However, not one of my favorite Sierra Nevada beers or pilseners. I'll take the Kellerweis over this for a yard work libation any day of the week!

Serving type: can
