12oz bottle into a pilsner

A - Beautiful clarion amber with a short, light tan head that leaves a passable amount of lace.

S - Lots of sweet malt and very noticeable hops.

T - Pilsner and lots of crystal malt. Very apparent of hop bitterness.

M - Carbonation is good for the style. Fullness is spot on. It's a bit dry and leaves behind an astringency.

O - Not bad, really. This one got knocks more for the astringent aftertaste than anything else. Also, the crystal wasn't balanced very well. Still pretty drinkable, though. The colder, the better.
