look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

again, bought this 1st time I saw it, just becuase it's from new belgium

A poured from the 12 oz bottle into my new belgium goblet. Pours a classic pilsner yellow with a decent head the settles to a nice thin malty film without much lacing

S this comes across like a classic pilsner but way better. (think sam adams noble pils) a nice hopiness here and the malt is all but completely overridden

T: more hops than I expected, for a pilsner, and I am GLAD about that! seems the carb overpowers the taste a bit.
m more than a bit of bite, what with the alcohol and the up-front hopiness. strongly carbonated.

D: have to hold out a bit here, not as smooth as it might be.
STILL THIS IS REALLY GOOD>
