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.

Pours a soft, frothy head. Grainy, malty aroma. Clear, golden color. Starts with a nice, grainy bitterness with a touch of citrus. Smooth malt builds over the grainy hops. Finish is slight bitterness, grainy hops and lingering malt.

This is really, really nice. Great complexity and great hop profile.

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!
