Bot. 3.21.14 Consumed 8.14.14 - Sampled in Spiegelau ipa glass.

(3.65) A: Palest of straw pour is lemony in the vessel with an easy clarity and moderate rise of macro-effervesce. Atop sits a cornsilk white head, slight in size, short in retention, lapsing to a minimal lace coverage.

(3.75) A: Aroma was soft wheat and lemon slices. Dried grains light level.

(3.95) T: Flavor was wheaty, hay and lightly dry citrus. Flowery hops are of good levels here, much above standard expectations. Lemon grass, freshly squeezed lemon, good bite of spicy herbal hops on the finish and swallow.

(4.0) M: Crisp mouthful, very sharp and tight providing a good tingle on the tip of the tongue.

(3.95) O: Overall a very hoppy pilsner, good drinking with near pale/ipa hop levels. Sharp palate and carbonation, great flavor.

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.
