look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Clear pale gold. Head is fluffy, bright-white, with tight bubbles. Lively carbonation and some touches of lacing.

Smell: Faintly husky. Nice bright sweetness that has touches of corn and grass. Definitely sweeter than expected. Touches of apple, cracker, and white bread crust. Mildly earthy and herbal. Lager yeast asserts itself.

Taste: Nice dusting of citrus from the hops. Malts run light, pale, and clean. Mildly herbal with a nice cut of cracker. Earthy in good measure. Touches of grass and corn, but minor. Lingering dirty earthiness. Hops add a nice counter to the extremely light malts profile.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, and light. Body fringes on medium, but doesn't quite cross over. Carbonation is lively and helps spread the magic. Slightly dry.

Overall: I could drink this day in and day out if I had a hankering for a lager. It hits the spot and that's all I can ask for. Damn fine take.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Ap: Golden, transparent yellow color. Almost looks like synthetic motor oil. Weird description but hey, its the truth.

Ar: Mild Apple and citrus notes. Nothing very strong. Pleasant.

Ta: Very crisp and refreshing. Very hoppy notes and the flavor lingers. The hops stay on the palate for a long period of time. This is basically an IPA without the bitterness.

Mf: Smooth and refreshing. I can see myself drinking this during a hot summer day.

Ov: Tasty and hoppy. The alcohol doesn't over power and the bitterness isn't as potent. This is a good beer to try if you are not a true hop head. Good transition beer.

Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Enjoy by May 7, 2012.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1.5 finger puffy white head. Only a little bit of visible carbonation. Decent lacing on the side of the glass.

S: Grassy aroma with subtle bread and malt hints. Fairly good hop backing. A little bit of sweet dark fruit when the glass is swirled.

T: Starts off with a surprising hop kick, mellows to the bready malt flavors you would expect in a pilsener. Finishes with the crisp hop.

M: Clean and refreshing, has a little more bite than most pilseners. Average carbonation.

Overall a very good pilsener. I enjoy the hops it brings to the table. Can see how its not for everyone but a refreshing hop dose without diving into an IPA.
