4.3/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml swing-top growler poured into HF stemmed glass. Filled at the brewery the day before. Copied from notes since my computer wasn't working at time.

A- Opens with a nice "pop" and pours a light clear golden straw color with nice consistent carbonation and about two fingers of foamy, slightly bubbly head that leaves nice layered lacing.

S- Aromas of lemons, grains, fresh grass, hops, pilsener malts. Very aromatic with nice distinct fresh smells. I don't know what it is about this beer, but in my opinion it's one of the most refreshing aromas I've had the pleasure of experiencing in a beer- I could smell it all day.

T- Lemony with a nice crisp refreshing grassy graininess to it. Finishes with pilsener malts and crisp lemons.

M- Medium bodied, crisp, refreshing, nice carbonation, very easy drinking.

O- This would be the perfect beer to enjoy on a nice sunny spring day right after mowing the lawn. It is crisp, refreshing, and very easy drinking with a nice mixture of lemons and grassy graininess to it. I haven't had a ton of pilsener's and I haven't ever been a huge fan of the style (maybe I just haven't experienced enough), but this beer is easily one of the best of the style that I've had and I hope HF makes it a regular offering.

The beer is golden yellow and transparent with two inches of fluffy, white head that forms a whipped merengue dome atop the beer. Aromas of pils malt, lager yeast, floral hops, biscuits. True to style. Effortless to drink and enjoy. I'd love to have a keg of this for the warmer months.
