As a local Austinite my review seems relevant. I have savored a lot of local beers and Austin Pearl Snap is one of my favorites. Normally I am a fan of IPAs the Austing Pearl Snap is a great Pils but actually tastes very similar to an IPA. Please note that I am not a beer expert, just a regular beer customer.

Poured on tap, this pours a crystal clear light yellow with a short lived white head. The smells are of grass hops, crisp earthy tones, some malts. The feel is medium to light. The taste is good, a nice bitter amount of noble hops along with some clean earthy flavors.

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear light golden straw with a fizzy one finger head that quickly fades to leave minimal clouding and halo.

S - Light grassy, floral hops along with some nice caramel malts. Awesome nobel hops.

T - Taste is more malts than usual here, sweet, with some slightly older nobel hops. there is a nice strong bitterness.

M - Mouthfeel is pretty good for a pils. The bitterness at the end is a bit distracting though. Nice carbonation.

O - Overall this isnt a bad German Pilsner. On the nose and mouth, the hops are a bit too prominent. The taste though, the hops are a bit faded.

wonderful take on a classic Pilsner style lager. Best I've had from Texas. Saaz hoppiness rings true and clear. Clean finish, good astringency here. Nice off white head that quickly dissipates. Light straw color and light lace down the glass. Yum! Will buy again.
