Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: The beer itself has a light golden straw color, more pale than vibrant. A medium-sized off-white head foams up on top before fading to a ring around the size of the glass.

Smell: The aroma has a slightly skunky hop aroma with a serious citrus edge. Light pilsener malt has just a hint of sweetness. Spicy, earthy hops and a bit of fresh cut grass add even more depth to the hoppy aroma.

Taste: This flavor impresses me at first and only gets better as I am able to analyze it more closely with each sip. The malt is quite dry, with just a hint of honey sweetness. A grassy bitterness starts to take hold. As the hops become more noticeable, a mostly earthy flavor comes through with a bit of spice on the tip of the tongue. The finish is firmly bitter with more grass and a bit of ammonia skunk.

Mouthfeel: At first I notice how grainy the front end is, along with how dry the mouthfeel is. The body feels a bit fuller than the average pilsener, but not by much. The carbonation is crisp but a little bit on the light side. There is a light residual hop oil after each sip.

Overall: I was definitely surprised that I liked this as much as I did. It seems to be one of the best pilseners I have had. The combination of grainy pilsener malt, grassy and earthy hops, and yeast create a special beer that I will definitely be going back to.
