3.5/5 rDev -5.7%
Appearance: minimal head, low carbonation, gold in color, clear
Smell: earthy hops and grain
Taste: grain, grass, toasted malt, and citrus hop smack at the end
Mouthfeel: sweet start with a bitter middle and a more bitter smack at the end, medium-light carbonation, medium-light bodied
Overall: An above average hoppy but not overly hoppy German pils. If I am in the mood for the style, I would certainly get this. The dry hopping adds a refreshing element. That said there are others in the style I would get first.

3.9/5 rDev +5.1%
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours very clear bright gold. Thick half inch of white foam. Nose is light pilsy bitter. German style. Clean open firm hop that balances out. Nice blend, with a notch higher bitter than a typical pils. Crisp finish. Some citrus. Very good.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Clear pale gold in the glass with a big frothy white head that is lacing a lot. The smell is a bit faint but of pale malts and spicy hops. This beer is described as a dry hopped pilsner and that seems evident by the fresh hop bite in the taste which is actually much more noticeable than I was expecting. Noble hops provide much of the base which is appropriate for the style, bitterness and hop flavor is a bit higher than normal but in a good way. The base of this beer is a pale malt providing a fresh bread taste and mouthfeel. The yeasts provide a typical lager profile mostly clean but with a touch of spice. This beer is quite lively as the result of a good dose of carbonation and the tingly hop bitterness. The finish is pretty clean with just a hint of the pale malt and slightly bigger hit of hoppy spice and bitterness hanging around. Overall I'm pleasantly surprised. This is a good example of an often overlooked style perhaps updated a bit with the extra dose of hops. This brewery happens to just a short drive from where I live so I'm excited that it looks like I'll have a good local brewer to support, something that there are too few of in CT.
