A-a clear pale gold with a creamier white head. Great retention and some effevesence

S-rich biscuit tones and mild earthy hops

T- rich malt flavors, big bread balanced against the milder noble hops. There's a pleasant fruity aspect on the finish

M-a little thinner, but with a nice fullness to it. No noticeable "bubbly" feeling from the carbonation

O-a really good, lighter but full-flavored Pilsner.

Bought a couple of sixers for a recent Halloween party I hosted. Finally getting around to trying this.

Served in a DFH, ribbed condom glass.

A: Poured a light orange color with a lot of fog pouring off this bastard. The head was small.

S: Infinitely bread with some understated fruit funk in there as well.

T: I'm glad this wasn't an overly sugar, Americanized version of this style. As it stands, this was pretty tasty: European flair with a hint of grapefruit just to let us know that Florida is indeed a state in the US of A.

M: Thick bubbles in terms of carbonation bill, which I appreciated. Mild splotchy lacing. This one rests well on the palate.

O: Not much love for this one on here. I suspect lots of outer homerism might be to blame.
