4.26/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 3/21/2014.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a flute glass.

Light straw body with fairly active carbonation. A short-lived white foam head collapses and left a good amount of sticky white lacing throughout.

Floral notes dominated the nose. Subtle notes of lemon peel and grains were also present.

The tongue picked up impressive floral and herbal notes up front. Very subtle presence from the grains. There were minor notes of toasted grain but this brew is not focused on the malts. Lemon peel came through pretty well in the finish.

The carbonation was medium/heavy. Light body. Crisp and clean.

Overall this is a killer Pilsener. Great complexities in the hops. It may be hop-heavy but it should not scare away those anti-hop beer-lovers.

3.94/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottled on 04/16/14. Served in a pint glass. Beer pours pale yellow in color, not quite transparent, with a medium white head. Super pilsner hop aroma reaches across the room to smack you in the face, as if to say, "hey, there's a pilsner here, why aren't you drinking it?" (Note: benefits from being served in a glass.) This is apparently thanks to dry hopping with Saphir, a relative of German Hallertauer. Flavor is in line with expecations: super crisp, sharp bite of hops, though not overall particularly bitter. Finishes really dry. A great example of the style.
