interesting hybrid brew from epic. what struck me first was the greenish tinge when poured into my epic logo pint. frothy white head with larger bubbles rising from the bottom, but it didn't stick around. herbal, almost medicinal aromas wafting out of this one; increased in intensity as the beer warmed up a few degrees. something grassy, too. light body as expected with a dry, dry finish. not as thirst quenching as i would have expected; those american hops really dry this beer out. taste is like a german pilsner that received an extra dose of u.s. hops. i suppose that's what they were going for in this one. certainly ok, but i wouldn't rush out to find another.

Classic golden pilsner appearance, I also think the can itself I really nice looking. Light smell, pale malts, some sweet floral notes. Not really bitter, but hoppy tasting, light citrus and fruit notes and some candy sweetness. Crisp and easy drinking.

A nice summer time beer for hop heads! I love the bright hoppy flavors paired with such a light and effervescent pils. Certainly not the most authentic beer, but definitely worth a try if you like hops and are looking for a refreshing, low-alcohol alternative to IPA. Like most light lagers, it is a bit underrated on BA because too many people have hang ups about this style. Just because something is in the same family as a PBR or Bud doesn't mean it's bad!
