4.3/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Sign at brewery says 5.5% Abv and 25 IBU

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance is a light golden yellow, with a thin layer of head. Smells slightly grainy, I'm not a huge pilsner fan, but this is one o the better ones I've had. At first sip it's slightly spicy, slight citrus followed by malt with a bitter finish. It's not an IPA finish but a slight drying, bitter finish. Very tasty! Mouthfeel is a lot fuller than you would associate with a Pilsner, probably due to the higher ABV.

Overall, this is a very solid beer from a new brewery. Again, not usually impressed with Pilsners but this one is a home run. It's a new one for them, so hopefully they keep it consistent.

3.8/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Served in a tumbler glass, canary yellow with a light haze to it. Thin ring of foam, not much of a head on it. A tiny bit of

Lemon shortbread aroma, soft florals, that's nice.

Bready taste, lightly floral, dry and clean in the aftertaste. Feel is a bit limp and watery with a bit of slickness. Needs more carbonation and crispness. Tastes ok but just doesn't feel right. Kind of a mixed bag overall, it needs a little fine tuning to sing.

Thanks to Howard for this one!
