3.9/5 rDev -0.8%
Appearance: Clear, straw yellow color with one finger of white head
Aroma: Grainy, cooked veggies, wet hop leaves; has a definite euro-pils vibe going on.
Taste: Crisp, a little dry up front with a decent amount of biscuty malt, then some nice, building earthy bitterness all the way through the finish. which is fairly lingering.
The Rest: Except for a somewhat weak aroma, this is a real solid, tasty pilsner. Much enjoyed.

03/31/14 On tap (this time) at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Definitely much more body & flavor than others Pilsners.
March 2014. From bottle at home. Reminds me of a Czech/Spatan type beer. Slightly lighter in texture but just as robust in flavor. Aroma is more insistent than the actual flavor. Leaves one with a pleasant dryness & vague aftertaste that begs for more. Refreshing to say the least. Firestone Walker never ceases to impress me.

LOOK: Quite a pale draft, with a faint hint of gold to the liquid. White head forms properly, is long lasting, and provides rings of lace at every sip.
SMELL: Biscuity, bready like malt and yeast combo almost coming off like saltine crackers. After all the pilsner benchmarks are met, there is a helping of noble hops that is very strong.
TASTE: Bready and biscuity once again but with high alpha hops adding a nice tang. Leaf, slight citrus and plenty of bitterness coming from a solid dose of hops. Pine, lemon citrus and herbal noble hop. Definitely hitting on the traditional hop flavors but something is afoot that leads me to believe some American hops also are used. Whatever the case, it is delicious.
FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated brew that is crisp and refreshing like a good pils should be. Goes down easy and if you don't think about it, it's gone without a thought. I recommend keeping this in mind while tasting, stop and enjoy this one.
OVERALL: Firestone Walker has crafted the perfect pilsner. It seriously does not get any better than this.

Poured from bottle into Willy glass. This is a beautiful clear light-straw colored beer with a tight pure white head. The aroma is of bread and light malt - very little hop aroma at all. Taste follows with a clean light bready flavor and no hops or bitterness to speak of. Mouthfeel is great - a perfectly refreshing beer for a hot afternoon. Overall, this is a super clean and well done pilsner.
