12 oz. can dated February 24, 2015 poured into a New Glarus nonic pint glass. Reviewed on March 30, 2015.

L: Color is straw, pale gold. Sudsy, two-finger head slowly recedes. Great clarity and very inviting.

S: Spicy, herbal noble hops on the nose. Fresh-cut grass, musty, hay, mild pepper spice; a touch of bready malts are present, too.

T: Spicy noble hop presence, pepper, grass, lemon; bready pilsner malts, slight grains. Crisp, clean and very refreshing with a dry finish.

F: Smooth, medium body with mid-level carbonation. Extremely quaffable.

O: While slightly hoppier than Sierra Nevada Nooner but not as lupulin-intense as Victory Prima, Pivo hits the sweet spot as far as hop-forward, U.S.-made pilsners go. The can format is a plus in my book as well. Well done (as usual), Firestone Walker!

Great interpretation of a pils. I would say more Bohemian than German

A bastardized version of the classic style, for sure. But, nonetheless, a personal favorite of my favorite style.
