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.

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

Smells: Grassy, herbal, and hoppy

Pours golden, well carbonated with a good head and nice lacing.
Very hoppy aroma. Tastes somewhat bitter almost like an IPA Pilsner.
Very clean and smooth tasting with the typical true pilsner aftertaste. Starts sweet and bready, finishes dry and bitter. This beer did not really stick out for me, but looking at the reviews a lot of people really enjoyed it

Floral bready aroma. Similar in the flavor. Refreshing and crisp, but not thin or overcarbed. Unexpectedly high bitterness is delicious and smooth and lingers pleasantly. Only criticism might be that the level of hop flavor verges on soapiness, but it is still better than the typical lack of flavor you expect in a pils.
