4.15/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

on the eye...
lovely white head of 2 fingers holding at one finger quite nicely, pure straw clean looking hue, nice carbonation apparent

on the nose...
usual pilsner bready malts but ah they are over matched by hop floral goodness... smells like a good euro pils except with a flowery bite, there is a definite breadiness to the malt represented here, very nice

taste et al...
the carbonation lets it flow over the tongue nicely, the flavors become more apparent as you sip on, malty bread, hop aftertaste (no "bite" like say sierra nevada pale ale, not a complaint mind you !), the malt gives it a nice honey twinge (maybe even a hair of lemon flavor is in there as well from the hops?), needless to say this is tasty for a pils, I dont find it uber challenging or anything.. if anything it might be milder than sam adams or sierra pale but it has a nicer balance than those 2 imo.

verdict
the pils for the beer snob having a pool party, very good on a hot sunny day being lazy by the pool, I'll definitely be picking up more of this during these summer months

4.23/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.

Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;

Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;

Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;

Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;

Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.

Serving type: on-tap
