look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle from their 2012 beer camp 12ver...
Appearance - Almost 2 fingers of white eggshell sudsy head, body is a perfectly translucent golden yellow straw color, head dissipates quickly and leaves very minimal lacing.
Smell - Big bready aromas, lite pear & apple, crackers, lite white pepper.
Taste - A good complexity of noble hops right off the bat, giving crisp floral and herbal bitterness on the front, slight tart appleskins, a nice bready flavor midsip to balance, then some slight minerals finishing with very dry and bitter hops, and a touch of bitter peach pits, and a dash of white pepper.
Mouthfeel - This has a pretty light, airy and dry mouthfeel, carb is on the higher side and definitely scrubs the palate, with some sharp edges on the sides and back of the tongue, and leaves a bitter dryness at the end of the sip.
Overall - While I personally don't prefer the style, this seems to represent the style extremely well for both flavor and mouthfeel. This would probably go well with heavier, higher fat/carb dishes. I would think this would be a great brew for pils fans.

A- Clear golden yellow body and a white foam cap of head. Constant stream of bubbles.
A- Clean malt light grassy hops.
T- Grainy sweet malt with a light bitterness that comes through more and sticks around in the finish. Not much in the way of hop flavor.
M- Medium body and smooth with an appropriate level of carbonation.
D- It's not bad, but there are better pilsners out there.
