3.55/5  rDev -5.8%

On tap, Pours a clear golden color with a half inch of head. Aroma is grassy with some grains and lemon. Some lacing. The taste is cut grass, lemon peel and malts. A bit floral at the end. Light, crisp mouthfel with alot of carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Somewhat sweet and bready. Overall, decent beer I'd have again during the summer months. Reminds me a bit of Sierra Nevada Summerfest.

On tap at Cole's. Served initially too cold, its true balance and flavour reveals itself as it warms to room temperature. Light yellow,and lacey, but yet spot on and so drinkable. Very good dinkability. Very good malting that adds to the mild but significant bitterness.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.

Poured a dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was Goid retention and lacing.

The smell featured light pilsner malt, a grassy hop and fruity esters.

The taste consisted of a grainy pilsner malt, typical noble hopping and a pronounced ester.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty, fruity pilsner.

This review is from a tasting I had of this in July at the Phish Superball Festival - Watkins Glenn, NY. Yes, I know its a few months old in my mind now, but I wanted to write a few things down on what I remember, plus I highly doubt I will ever have the opportunity to drink again...If I do, I will update. I was deff loking forward to having this brew as it was brewed in honor of my favorite band.

From what I remember, it poured a light crisp golden color. Nice Foam for a pils...(I guess thats why they call it FOAM)...or maybe its for Phish?? :)
Anyway, It was actually a pretty decent tasting pils from what I remember. Super easy to drink, tastey, and a bit higher ABV than some other pils being offered at a place like a festy...I had a bunch of these throughout the weekend.
Id really like to have again and review live.

I had this on-tap at Max's. Poured into a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden light amber with fluffy white head and a mild amount of lacing.

Smell: Very mild. Crisp pils malt with a sweet honey note.

Taste: Light and very easy to drink. It definitely has that distinctive pilsner taste. Bready grain with a mild hop bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: Admittedly, this isn't my favorite style, but I really enjoyed this beer. Super easy to drink. I would definitely have another.

Growler from Ale Yeah! in Roswell, GA during the Sierra Nevada tap takeover. Being a Phish fan, I had to grab a growler of FOAM.

A: A clear straw color with a fluffy white head. fluffhead?

S: Sweet honey malt and a floral and grassy hop.

T: The malt starts out a little sweet and with a little grain. The hop then comes in a provides a grassy flavor and bitterness to balance out the malt. Finish is a touch bitter with some lingering grain.

M: Medium body, which was a surprise, with good peppery carbonation. Bitter in the finish.

O: A little bit more bitter than other Pilseners. After the initial few sips, it all blends rather nicely.
