Tons of bubbles rocket up through a pale orange-yellow beer, perfectly clear, topped with a nice, clingy head of white foam. Very, very nice.
Grassy hops rule the nose, balanced by a light breadiness and a noticeable sour yeast character.
The taste has all the character of pilsners I've had in Germany: Bright citrus hops dance around with some notes of sweet light lemon and pineapple. I even get a little taste of sticky icky weed which adds to the beer and works great with the other flavors.
Surprisingly full-bodied, peppery, lively carbonation. Silky.
This is one killer pilsner. It takes a good deal of skill to brew a beer so clean-tasting, yet flavorful. Where so many brews seem to fail, Sam Adams succeeds.
