12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and bottled on 04/10/2014 poured into a stange glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear, straw yellow

Smell: The aroma is light with floral hop character and a faint biscuit

Taste: The bitterness is up front, with the typical pilsner malt profile coming in the middle with some grassy undertones and finishes clean with some floral hop notes

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and very crisp

Overall: I really enjoy pilsners and I like mine more on the bitter side. This is a solid pilsner. This isn't hoppy like I might of expected from the name. I can see where they were going by focusing on a cleaner, more floral hop character but that might get lost in other peoples minds with how common "dry-hopped" is being thrown around these days. A very solid pilsner nonetheless.

A -4.25 - Extra light straw color. Very clear. Thin but persistent white head made of exceptionally small white bubbles. Minute bubbles can be seen rising continuously in the glass.

S - 2.75 - Wet, grassy hops dominate the aroma with a low, unappetizing vegetal note that reminds me of sauerkraut. I don't get any malt aromas.

T - 3.75 - The flavors are cleaner than the aromas. Grassy, noble hops hit first, then there's a slightly sweet, pilsner grain note. The wet vegetal aroma is echoed by the aftertaste.

M - 3.75 - Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Moderate hops bitterness. No alcohol presence.

O - 3.5 - This is billed as a hoppy pils, but I don't find it overly hoppy for the style. I do find the wet vegetal flavor and aromas distracting. I am a big fan of Firestone Walker, but I think they missed the mark with this one. Personally, I'd rather have a traditional Czech pilsner.
