Enjoyed on tap at Mill Valley in a Unibroue hurricane glass

A - a nice deep golden color, pours with a few fingers of delicate white head. Lacing coats the glass and the head retention is ok. A nice beer to look at.

S - fantastic hop aroma. Smells like a great IPA. Does not smell like what you expect of a lager.

T - taste is good, but not quite as delectable as the aroma. Some sips seemed a little too bitter, others seemed perfectly balanced. Enjoyable, though.

M - nice smooth mouthfeel with just the right hint of astringency.

O - probably one of the best lagers I've ever had. Great aroma, good taste, and an interesting beer. Definitely recommended.

I got this beer on tap at Pangaea Two Brews Cafe in Sacramento.

A: The beer is a light golden yellow with a three finger white head that lingers for a long time.

S: This is one of the most pleasantly fragrant beers I have ever had. The smell of hop, citrus, and pine hit you in the face before your first sip.

T: Despite being a pilsner, this beer has a similar taste to Pliny the Elder. There is stong but not overpowering hops with a touch of pine in the aftertaste.

M: The carbonation is not a lot but is perfect for this beer. This viscosity could be a little bit more but is. Still above average.

O: Unexpectedly great for a pilsner. I highly recommend this beer.
