On tap at Pony Bar UES. Served in a 8oz. pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

.5 finger foamy white head with moderate retention. Beer is a slightly cloudy goldenrod. Lacing is web-like with good stick. Real solid.

Nose is citrus, tree sap, grapefruit and other tropical fruit hop bitterness. Aromatic. Real appetizing.

Opens citrus, cane sugar, grapefruit, papaya, passion fruit. Very fruit forward with a big malt presence. More tree sap hop bitterness balanced with cane sugar in the middle. End is citrus with a sweet papaya and tropical fruit aftertaste. Probably the most complex and enjoyably hoppy pilsner I've ever come across.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and light in the mouth and goes down quenching. Real drinkable and the 7.2% is barely there. Finishes sticky with a dry aftertaste. Very nice.

Hands down the best pilsner I've ever had. The ABVs are hidden very well and the beer drinks like a balanced, tropical ipa. Definitely worth the praise.

Growler poured into a pint glass.

a-hazy deep golden color with slightly less than a finger of white head

s-sweet, malty and citrus with notes of pine

t-lots of hops with malt, pine and tropical fruits, distinct bitter grapefruit finish

m-refreshing lively light mouthfeel, not as crisp as regular pilsener reminds me of an IPA

o-really great beer, refreshing citrus hops, blends the line between pilsener and ale

32 oz growler from Whole Foods, poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy golden color, topped with an inch of creamy white head, has decent retention and leaves tons of lacing.

S- Wow, lots of fresh tropical fruits, mango, peach, grapefruit, and a floral, grassy hop aroma. This is easily the hoppiest lager I've ever smelled.

T- Similar to the aroma, lots of vibrant tropical fruit, although in the flavor these take slightly more of a backseat to the floral, grassy and dry hop flavors, a bit of earthy hop flavors as well. There's some sweet, cracker-like malt. The finish is dry with just mild bitterness.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth, crisp and dry.

O- An excellent beer, has a really wonderful hop character and is highly-drinkable, one of the better hoppy beers, lager or otherwise, I've had in a while.
