3.81/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Pours crystal clear ginger ale yellow color with a big 2 finger foamy white head that was packed with a massive array of different sized bubbles and faded very slowly, dissipating and going down like a deflating air mattress, leaving good foamy lacing that coated the sides and rings as it went down.
Smells of malt, cardboard, yeast, wet bread and floral hops, followed by herbs, lemon zest, dry grass or hay and light toast. Like all pilsners, it’s pretty basic with a hint of hops to offset the malty backbone.
Tastes like it smells, with malt, cardboard, yeast, wet wheat bread, biscuit, lemon zest, coriander, floral hops, herbs, tea leaf, hay, mild spice and faint caramel. The spices and hops are soft, but add enough to the biscuity malts and grains to make it smooth and balanced. It’s basic and a nice American version of a European classic.
Mouthfeel is light and yet zesty and watery at the same time, with light carbonation, a light to medium body for the style, and a slightly bitter finish that has lemon zest , grains and hops which trail off on the sweet side.
It is extremely easy to drink and typical of the style meant to be a session beer. This would be great to pound at a party or on the deck over the summer, and what it lacks in the flavor that you’d expect from Great Divide it makes up with drinkability. I enjoyed it, but would not go out of my way to buy a 6 pack of it. I will grab one if it's in the cooler though...

12 ounce bottle -> Pilsner Flute glass
A - This beer pours up a very clear light to medium gold with a small 1" white head. Retention and lacing are both very good.
S - earthy notes, grass, floral, honey
T - pears, peaches, lemons, grassy flavors, maybe some honey, and a mild bitter finish. Well balanced from start to finish.
M - well carbonated, small aftertaste
O - It is a pilsner which makes it okay by me, but never a beer I just jump up and down for. Having said that though, it was refreshing and enjoyable.
