look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
