3.53/5 rDev -10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a standard pint glass, this is a very bright, very pale gold, with a small head. The nose ... well, not nearly the hops I was expecting. It's faint, lightly floral, together with the scent of grainy malt. Flavor is better. There's a nice bitterness, but hop flavor is just not there. It's bitterness together with a somewhat grainy, a little sweet malt.
Disappointing beer from Firestone Walker.

Poured on tap at Churchkey into a tall pokal glass.
A great golden and bright butter yellow body color, with a matching two finger evenly creamy ivory white head. Fluffy top. Cascades in sheets of ring like lacing. while drinking Very little carbonation, but noticeable and very slow rising.
Very interesting nose for a pilsner. Hop is almost juiced tropical sensing, with some small herbality to it. Extremely dry sensing and crisp, hints of big orange cantaloupe and melon like aromas. Really wild for a pilsner.
Palate really shines uniquely. Big juiced hop and malt like flavors. Intense drying aired hop of pine and resin like finish. Good toast bread aromas and bakery bread and crackery dried white dough and malts on the finish. Mouthfeel is perfectly solid with a good match of carbonation and malt density. Some classic bright hop herbality to match, with toasty dry flavor
Overall a really unique pilsner that hints at American engineered and classic style in the Czech realm. Excellent beer, and the adjective bright just keeps jumping out at me. A very wonderful, and unique hybrid. Lovely.
