Not as big a fan of this beer as everyone else on this site seems to be (or of the brewery in general), but that's what this is all about: people talking about their own experiences and going with their individual palate. First off, the the color is an opaque yellow which I feel should be reserved for unfiltered wheats. This appearance seems out of place. The nose is definitely this brew's highlight. It has a nice noble (earthy, dirty, subtle) and spicy hops. The taste is where things go array again. Off the bat, I get lemony flavors, again as if this were some type of summer wheat. It then seems to try to finish dry like a pilsner should, but the bitterness is a touch too weak to pull it off.
Overall, this is not what I am looking for in a pilsner. I want crisp, hoppy, refreshingly drinkable, not muddled, citrusy randomness with an wheat-like, dense mouth-feel.
