Served from tap into a shaker. Poured golden yellow with one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, bread, wheat, grain, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, grain, wheat, bread, and spice. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. While this one definitely had quite a few flavors that one would expect from the style it just felt like it didn’t really have anything above and beyond that. While this fact made it quite easy to drink, it didn’t make it very enjoyable unfortunately. If you are a fan of traditional brews from this style, this one might be right up your alley though. I prefer for my palate to be challenged though, thusly why I say that. Worth your time is you are a fan of the traditional style, but that is about it.

Light golden hued with nearly no head at all. Exceptional clarity. Aroma is faintly of light pilsner malt and somewhat of a saltine cracker. The mouth is light and refreshing. The flavor is light pilsner malt and faint bittering hops. The finish comes off as salty due to the lasting hop bite.

always funny when a brewery known for doing one thing well goes in a different direction, and the beer falls flat becuase its not what we all expected from them. this is guilty of that in some sense, the first green flash beer maybe ever to be less than a hop bomb, and what is this pils missing? an appreciable hop profile beyond the standard grassy straw balancing bitterness that every single pilsener ever made has. its an irrelevant commentary on the style, bland in malt, one dimensional there, and so light in body as to be confused with a coors light. i dont dislike it though, think its fits the pils style guidelines well, but where is the innovation? it seems this series from them may have run its course, a white, black, and session ipa, fine, but now this? it was a disappointment to me, not because i didnt like the beer but because green flash can do a lot more with a pils than this, im sure of it.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a bright, clean, clear gold color with 1/2 inch of bright white head that had decent retention and lacing.

The aroma was fairly subdued and benign, and featured a pleasant enough grain base with some soft hops. On the tongue though, the beer had a much more assertive personality, nice earthy grains, hops that had a fair amount of "pop", and just enough tang to be interesting.

The body was very nice, full and smooth without being heavy, and with a semi-dry finish. Drinkability was very good, my pint was gone quickly and I'll be having more while it's on tap. Overall, a very pleasant brew, one that's worth your time if you see it.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at LURES in Maryland

T: Sweet malt flavor and finished slightly bitter and dry

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Decent pilsner – nothing I would grab again.
