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.

Appearence. Yellow, very bubbly, thin white head
Smell: very mild bread yeast, Lacked the dankness of lower quality beers.
Taste: the appearance, smell and taste could all be called those of a refined pilsner. Smooth, yeasty lager taste, but complimented with wonderful hopy bitterness and floral notes, that make this beer worlds apart from others of its category
mouthfeel: crisp, bubbly, light/ medium body.
Overall: stands out as a very good beer in a category in which very good is uncommon. If you are a picky beer drinker, but you need a break from IPA'S and stouts, and its warm outside, buy this beer.
