Pours gold with a small, fading white head.
Delicate aroma, some spicy and herbal hops and cereal grains.
Flavours are the same - boring cereal grains and spicy hops, with little else to back things up.
Carbonation is too high.
Not impressive....

22oz bomber purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.

Pours a rather thin golden hue, with some pale haze through it, and a head which seemed to form initially, but only went as far as becoming a mild ring of white. Very little visible carbonation. It looks exceptionally generic, except even the most generic pilsner usually filters out the haze. I'm unimpressed.

Nose is mild and green, with a pretty light basis, but a pleasant enough vegetative hop character to get it going. Slight sweet herbal note and some hints of esters, but that could just be other sweet characters coming from the neutral malt. It's ok—nothing to write home about, but fine enough.

Taste is slightly worse. Faint, neutral pale malt graininess on the front with an upturn in metallic hops which giving a clanging bitterness to the mid to back palate. It doesn't sit nicely with the malt character, which is weak and yet also slightly too sweet. Indeed, there's a clinging beet-sugar sweetness right through to the back which echoes some of the vegetative hop characters on the nose. Feel is light and fluid, but with an unpleasant stickiness towards the back as the sweetness stings the finish.

Overall, this is easily my least favourite effort from Evil Twin, and quite a slight on pilsners in general. I'm genuinely unimpressed.

$8 for a 12oz pour. Evil Twin, this better be good. Served in tulip. Poured a mildly hazy, bright yellow color with over an inch of white head (which means I actually got about 9oz for my eight clams) that had moderate retention and lacing.

The aroma was almost exactly typical, some mild, earthy grains, and a gentle dose of of soft hops. The taste was the same, perhaps even a bit on the bland side of typical, and in all honesty, a brewery down the street from me (Chuckanut) makes a far superior example of the style.

The body was on the full side of average for the style, a bit sticky and sweet, especially on the finish. Drinkability was decent enough, but not good enough to make me want another. Overall, because of the low value, I can't recommend you spend your own money on this beer. If you can get someone to buy it for you, go ahead and tick it, otherwise, avoid.

A-pours a murky golden straw color with a white sudsy head with good retention
S-grainy wheat aroma dominates with some grassy hops lingering in the background
T-wheat malt mixes with the grassy hops with a touch of lemon and some remnants if minerals
M-light bodied with high carbonation
O-not a bad brew, probably would have been better fresh. Not worth the price though
