Shared by argo0. Thanks Aaron. The beer is pale yellow and mostly clear with a small white head. The aroma brings citrus, malt, lager yeast. the flavor offers an even more pronounced lager yeast character, with grain and oranges. Light to medium in body with spritzy carbonation. A bit sweet, with a light hop character and mild bitterness in the finish. This was OK.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a good amount of hops along with light caramelized malts, citrus and lager yeast.

T: The taste starts out with a strong hops bitterness for the style. Then some citrus and malt sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides some balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid beer to drink for a while.

On tap at the Malted Barley. Pours a semi translucent golden amber color with over an inch of head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of grassy, floral hops. Earthy. Taste is more of the grassy and floral hops. Hints of citrus but the cut grass and floral hops are the main flavor. Nice amount of bitterness. Sweet malt flavors. More citrus comes out at the end combined with the floral hops. Heavier mouthfeel than expected. Decent amount of hops on this one. I usually find pilsners to be a boring style but this is a solid take on the style. Overall, I'd grab it again.
