look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz can poured into a Shaker pint glass. Date stamp on bottom of can is 12183B7 09:00272
Appearance: Light hazy yellow....beer glows a bit when held up to the light. When I first poured it I saw a bit of a Mountain-Dew yellow. Decent white head upon pouring that slowly died back to a persistent thin white foam across the top. Nice thick sheets of lacing.
Smell: Some malt and grain and a bit of lemon citrus. As the beer warms up you can finally smell the hops in full depth - and the lemon is still there as are the noble hops.
Taste: Crisp with quick transition into bitter hop finish. Hop finish is lemon, with some noble hops thrown in at the end as well with some malt underneath, but just barely. A beer definitely on the bitter side of things, but it's not excessively bitter.
Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation, good thickness underneath. Hops definitely sticking to the teeth with this one.
Overall / Drinkability: A very interesting take on this style of American beer, and definitely quite hoppy. I'm not sure if it is as drinkable as the brewer claims, but I could see this beer pairing with a lot of American dishes as well, and I find it enjoyable enough that I wouldn't mind having another one another time....but not in one sitting. It's too hoppy and not light and refreshing enough. A good beer, but not a highly drinkable pilsener as described on the can.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw colored body. Looks great.
The aroma is lemon with a little funk in the background. I'm not sure what that's about.
The taste is generally mild, some light to moderate lemon bitterness shows up midway through. The finish is shorter and a touch sweet with a dry bitter note at the very end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Nice, not great though.
