750 mL growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slight haze to it. Mostly clear yellow. Not much head on a vigorous pour. Thin collar after a bit.

Smell - Smells like a pilsner. Slightly hoppy. Earthy hop. Grainy pale malt.

Taste - Quite a bit hoppier. Earthy and a little grassy. Grainy malts. Follows the nose with much more intense hop flavor. Bitter throughout the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Grainy finish. Intensely bitter, at least it seems to me. Pleasantly dry.

Overall - It's good for a pilsner. Something I could drink a lot of, but not earth shattering like other HF beers.

Poured from a growler into a tasting snifter.

The beer pours a golden color with a mild layer of off white head. The smell is very light and herbal with a nice, light malt note. The herbal quality carries over to the taste, which is very light. There is a strong bitter note that almost overshadows the pils malt taste. This is a very light and clean beer. The body is light and the finish is super dry. I really enjoyed this beer and can't say I've had another Pilsener like it.
