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.

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.

Bottle into shaker pint

Two finger off-white, soapy head, cloudy gold color body

Smells: Grassy, herbal, and hoppy

Tastes: Malty, boozy, grassy, grainy, bitter noble hops at the finish

Mouthfeel: thin, but not watery

Overall, I want to have this again, but on draught
