December 14, 2014

12 oz bottle, pilsner glass

A – Very light straw, as in SRM = 1, and extremely clear. A couple centimeters of bright white head, fairly low retention. Medium bubbles cascade up towards the foam, picking up the light.

S – Very fresh, kneaded raw white bread dough, the Pils malt in all its glory. Some hop aroma, floral and herbal. A touch of sulfur, then bitter hops.

T – A lot of noble hops, both bittering and flavor. Very much floral, with a touch of herbal/medicinal flavor. Dough or very light water cracker.

M – Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, low dryness in the finish but enough to help cleanse the palate. Primary component, though, is the hop bitterness.

O – A lot to like here, and it’s a pilsner made using obviously high quality ingredients. Would be very enjoyable on a late spring day in the beer garden. A bit overbalanced toward the bitter hops, but still well made.

Cord out of a 12 ounce bottle into a Pilsner glass
Beautiful Rocky head and a brilliant clear light gold body
Floral front in the nose...saaz hops for sure
Hop bite is very much in there in the front with a doughy malty middle and nice balance at the end
Light
Nice beer
I would have it again
