3.92/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance- pale yellow with a twinge of haze a finger of pale white foam on top. some lacing

Aroma- floral, watermelon, and minty

Taste- herbal and minty on the front in with a finish of slightly toasted grain. Not a lot of corn or honey flavor in this one. lingering hop bitterness in the aftertaste maybe because of the whole hops ?

Mouthfeel- dry with a good carb level although the hops in the end really do linger.

Overall- I maybe shouldn't have tasted this before work, The hops really stick around. Its tasty but I think that lagunitas does a better hoppy pils( with more booze) and over all I really like the Oskar Blues little yellow Pils but this one sure seems authentic and is a definite contender!

Bottle poured into a glass

A: A clear straw with good lacing and a white head that fades after a few minutes.

S: Aroma balance is toward the flowery and spicy noble hops.

T: Crisp and bitter. Like the aroma, the hops are dominant with little malty flavor.

M: Medium with good carbonation.

Notes: This beer follows the style guide very well, and so I score it high accordingly. But I guess Pils just isn't my thing. The bitterness makes it difficult to enjoy the other flavors.
