look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner.

A: Light golden hue. Pervasive rising effervescence. Pours a 2+ finger, frothy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly leaving dry residue behind as it does. Dry sticky lacing, and lots of it.

S: White bread, lemon citrus, and tree bark.

T: White bread with a slight hop bite. Not much else.

M: Light and crisp. Full flavored. Filling bready aftertaste.

D: Sessionable.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Tons of effervescence, great head, and pervasive lacing. Nose is bready with citrus and woody notes. Bread, accentuated with a light hop bite. Overall, this is a fair quaff.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25

A - Arrived in a mason jar with a small, bubble head. The beer is a golden straw color, and quite clear. Visible bubble carbonation.

S - Minimal aroma, but it is as expected.

T - Mix of floral hops and very mild doughy malt. Bitterness is pretty strong here and the other flavors are rather indistinct.

M - Bone dry and astringent carbonation. Not pleasant.

O - The flavors aren't bad, but don't stand out in any way. The mouthfeel is incredibly uncomfortable, to the point where I'm beginning to wonder if there was something wrong with the keg? I checked other reviews to see of others had the same experience, and hopefully this was a limited problem. Would try again, but I'd take most any pilsner over this regardless of carbonation issues.

3.56/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: This brew pours a golden yellow with a tall 3 finger head white head. It's clear and bright. Good head retention and nice lacing.

S: The aroma has a nice malt background but is overshadowed by a spicy floral hop profile. It's a nice balance of slight fruitiness tones with the pilsner malt holding it together.

T: The taste is much as it smells with a spicy nose and a slight peppery aftertaste. Not too sweet, not too bitter. A moderate amount of carbonation gives helps back up the hop spice. It's a bit more towards the dry end with a detectable acidic bite that I would expect from a pale beer.

M: A moderate mouthfeel, not slick. I detect an ever so slight chalky feel on the tongue but not enough to overpower the palate.

O: Overall this is a nice beer, certainly emblematic of the style. It's a nice palate cleansing brew that refreshes.
