Clear straw color, no life. Smell of grains, a little malt sweetness. Watery, undistinctive taste. Fizzy, slightly soapy aftertaste. Probably good with spicy food, that’s about the best thing I can say. Funny, though, I gave this a 4.0 a month or two ago. Either my palate is changing, or judging beer, like most subjective evaluations, depends heavily on mood, setting and circumstance.

Appearance- Hazy yellow with 1/2 finger of coarse nicotine stained head
Aroma- floral, banana, honey, melon, citrus
Taste- clove, light corn banana, shampoo. This drinks a bit like a lighter crisper heff IMO. Hops are resiny with a touch of citrus rind. Just a hint of skunk as it warms it gets more of a honey taste.
Mouthfeel- a little fizzy for my taste, but good for the style.
Overall- to me it taste like a lighter thinner heff. Sessionable perhaps not as filling. Another tasty lawn mower beer, but nothing new.

Beer is brilliant gold, but has a poor head, these are a lot of bubbles rising from the bottom.
Aroma is of malt, no hops detectable, clean, no asetyl, no sulphur.
Taste is clean, crisp, a little sweet in the finish. It tastes a little fruity as well.
The beer is crisp and sessionable, however it is not a great pils. It lacks hops and is too fruity. I would maybe drink it as an easy session beer but it lacks depth and does not have much to explore.

A: A darker straw than most pilsners. minimal head and lacing.
S: Minimal smell, some grassy hops.
T: Taste brings more flavor than smell. Clean pilsner malts, sweet white bread. some spicy noble grassy hops. Crisp clean finish. Rather refreshing. Well executed pilsner.
M: big carbonation per style, medium body for style, quite quaffable. In summation a pilsner.
O: Pretty standard, within style, refreshing, clean crisp.

12oz bottle with no date, taken from the red hook sampler pack
look is a clear golden yellow-orange, with a small 3mm head. smell is all dusty grain and faraway skunky hops. taste is more sweet than the nose lets on, with none of te hops. sickly sweet buttered toast and plastic-y flat presence of hops. feel is slick and syrupy.
not a fan of this one, too sweet and with flat tasting hops. probably the least refreshing pilsner I've ever had.
