3.8/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a becker glass.
A: Clear, light golden color with over one finger of white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.
S: Chile spice and dried hay are balanced, with a fine thread of floral hops. Dimethyl sulfide is hinted at in its most obvious qualities, but otherwise the smell is very clean.
T: Begins off-dry, with bright acidity and mild floral hop aromatics. Malt becomes more evident into the middle where honest pilsner qualities and sulfurous off-flavors are in conflict right after pouring. The finish is intensely husky sees the profile at its most floral; bitterness is moderate with a drying mineral edge.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, crisp and slightly resinous on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: This beer presents sensory qualities in heaps; some good and a few questionable. Its pilsner core is solidly constructed around light malt qualities that do not disappoint. It appears to be a better version of a Bavarian pilsner, with a hops edge that seems a little blunted. Still, it is one of Great Divide's better stylistic examples, aside from basic Yeti.

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.
