3.14/5 rDev -11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Appearance: The hazy honey colored liquid is topped by an inch of foam; the retention was reasonable and a few shards of lace hang around
Smell: Slightly bready, with just a hint of grass
Taste: Golden-syrup malt flavors buttress the herbal, grassy hop bill; very rustic flavors
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with relatively crisp carbonation
Overall: Well, they got the mouthfeel right, but I am afraid the unusual malt and hop flavors here make this beer rather hard to enjoy

Poured into a pint glass. The color is light straw with a bit of haze. There is a half inch white foamy head. This looks close to excellent.
The aroma is full of grassy hops almost entirely. Very inviting.
The taste is light on the malt flavor; this is pretty hoppy for the style. That's fine by me so I'm apt to score this favorably but purists take note. The hop flavor is zesty and grassy, as European style hops are. The finish is quite crisp, making this very refreshing.
This is light bodied and highly drinkable. I recommend this one for people who like balanced and drinkable hop flavor. I would prefer this to a light IPA for example.

From 09/15/13 notes. On tap at The Salty Pig in Boston, MA. After a weekend of BA fests a nice change of pace. Served in a tulip.
a - Pours a somewhat clear bright yellow color with no carbonation evident and one inch maybe of white head. Weird it looks like it has no carbonation, as it was carbonated. Must be the glass.
s - Smells of wheat, grains, bready malts, yeast, light spice, and light citrus hops. Nice little bit of citrus on the end and normal pilsener malts throughout the nose.
t - Tastes of wheat, grains, bready malts, dough, yeast, earthy malts, citrus hops, and floral notes. Little more going on here than the nose but still quite light in the citrus and floral notes. Nice though.
m - Light to medium body and low carbonation, though it is there. Very easy to drink.
o - Overall a pretty nice pilsner; exactly what I wanted with lunch outside on a nice day. Easy to drink and some nice floral and citrus notes in the taste, would have it again.
Serving type: on-tap
