Pours a dark yellow with a light head that trails the glass. The smell is full of hop bite in the beginning with a bit of a grapefruit scent, but also fresh bread comes through. The taste was very pleasant with a zesty bite in the beginning and then mellowing out into a very drinkable beer with the pilsner malts coming through in the finish. A nice beer to have in the winter.

I was surprised to see I haven't reviewed this one yet.

22oz bottle. Bottled on date of 10/09/14. Pours a translucent amber color with a 1/4 inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is lots of piney and floral hops. The taste is a perfect mix for Xmas, piney hops. Flowery hops as well. A bit earthy at times with some more floral notes towards the end. Light amount of malt flavor. Bitter pine finish. Slightly sour. Somewhat boozey. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a hoppy, bitter Pilsner I always look forward to when Winter rolls around.
