3.64/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pours up some head (maybe a couple finger's worth) but shows little retention. The head is pure cotton white while the body is a clear, pale golden straw which shows hints of orange when held up to the light. So far, no lacing is left behind. Some lacing appears after a few drinks.

Nose- Has a pretty mellow aroma and is typical of many pilsners. Some grain, cereal, and some earthiness from the noble hops. The noble hops also impart some grassiness as well. All of this is quite subtle. Swirling does nothing to reveal anything else.

Taste- Starts with a slight tartness that recalls white grapes and then moves into heavy grain and cereal which, at the moment, are complimented well by the earth and grass of the hops. The hops seem fresh and well rounded and, at this point, the finish is the best part of the flavor profile. Normally, the forwardness of the vinosity would bother me but it is also well rounded. Everything is very smooth and balanced. My only real complaint about the taste is that it probably should be hopped a little more to fully represent the style. Some floral and herbal notes appear but they are rather light. An above average beer which seems to lose presence as I drink it. After a while, I get a bit of mustiness from the hop finish.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with lots of smoothness and little carbonation. Perhaps the best aspect of this beer.

Drinkability- Pretty easygoing. Not too pricey. At times, the flavor profile is pretty interesting but at other times, it approaches bland.

Overall- I'm vacillating on this one. I would definitely give it a try. It's not a bad pilsner even if it isn't very traditional. Above average brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - pours out of the can a clear yellow color with a decent head that leaves really nice lacing as it gets consumed

S - nose is lots of lemon scents with some bread and grain malts in the mix

T - starts off with lemon notes as detected by the nose, moves on to cereal/cookie malts, and finishes with a little grassy bitterness. Not uber complex, but then again, it's a pilsener.

M - very soft mouthfeel to it...one of the softest I can remember

D - overall, this is a pretty decent take on hit or miss style. I was expected an American take on the pils with hops, hops, hops, but was pleasantly surprised. I would drink it again, but it wouldn't be my first choice, especially from this brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 355ml can. Pours a bright, rich yellow colour. Nose is mostly funky and grainy. Not much beyond that. Taste is dry and tart with cereal and earthy noble hops notes. Refreshing! Good carbonation and definitely best served real cold on a hot day!

Pours a clear amber with frothy white head. Little lacing. Aroma of earthy hops and some spice. Flavor follows aroma with decent malt to balance the spicy hop character. Light body with mild carbonation. Crisp with a dry finish. Overall, a decent pils.
