look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Beer pours a very clear golden yellow color with a half finger head that dissipated quickly. Not much lacing left in glass. Smell is of sweet malt with a mild grassy hop aroma. Taste is of sweet malt and grassy hops. Carbonation was good for the beer, not overly done.

Decent beer, nothing extraordinary but well made.

Served on-tap in a Shaker pint glass at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Very clear honey gold with a small cap of white head with a rim of lacing near the top of the glass.

S: The aroma is a bit weak although not unpleasant. Some crackery malt character comes through and is accented by noble hopping, but the hops and malt both seem a bit too tame.

T: The tameness in the aroma is echoed in the flavor, which is not bad, but is somewhat nondescript within the style. The overall flavor is of an inobtrusively noble hopped pilsner, but the bitterness needs to be ratcheted up a by 10-15% (5-7 IBUs) and the malt character is also a little bit lacking with not enough breadiness to carry this part of the beer. Bitterness is light. There are no yeast esters or off-flavors but just not enough overall German pils character.

M: This beer is light-bodied with moderate carbonation and is very smooth overall.

O: While there is nothing off or wrong about this beer, it is missing some aroma and flavor punch that I would usually expect from Devil's Backbone. Certainly it is drinkable, but it comes off as a little nondescript overall and could use both more malt and hop character.
