Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

12 ounce bottle with no freshness dating, poured into a pils glass. What passes for a head is more or less gone by the time I finish pouring out the contents of the bottle. Nice clarity in the light gold body, though.

Husky and grainy nose with restrained floral and spicy hops in the background. An oddly boozy beer at such a modest ABV, but the alcohol does seem to accentuate the spiciness of the hops. Lingering semisweet doughiness, a thicker than necessary body and booze; this beer is anything but light and refreshing. Rough around the edges, almost like a malt liquor or a Euro strong lager. It's interesting, but I'm glad I only have a single to deal with instead of a sixer.

Born 18th Jan 2012. $1.99 single from The Village Pump

Pouring a clear straw yellow with some floaties, there's a dense, creamy white head that recedes to a disk leaving some lace. It looks pleasant enough, but the first whiff I take tells me something is seriously wrong here. Yes, there's a fairly nice noble hop character present, but there's also a rather intense eggy character, sulfurous and unpleasant. Along with that, there's crushed aspirin, again, unpleasant. I really can't draw out much of a malt aroma here, maybe some doughy character? Disappointing.

The palate opens with a rather metallic character along with sulfur and a definite plsaticy/medicinal character. Chlorophenols? Fermentation too warm? There is some hop flavor and some malt flavor as well, but the flaws here really get in the way of my evaluating them. Fairly neutral malts, with a mild earthy bitterness and a nice hop flavor, this actually has a nice, rounded hop character. The flaws, though ruin it. On the bright side, some of the off flavors do dissipate as I let the beer sit, but this isn't a style that should require decanting. Carbonation is high, probably appropriately enough, but I doubt my drain is going to care if it weren't.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Poured into a nonic pint glass on 3/11/13

DOP 12/31/12 printed on the bottle

Clear, golden yellow color. Bone white head about 1/2 inch tall. Thin layer of retention and uneven protrusions of lace.

The aroma isn't too shabby: noble hop grass and hay in abundance. The pilsner malt is very clean with a crisp graininess. The flavor is similarly shy on malts and the hops are ramped up. Grassy, herbal hops rake the taste buds with a bit too high of a bitterness for the style. Cereal grains as it warms. The finish has an unpleasant coating quality. Sharp, zesty feel with ample carbonation.

Eh, this is drinkable but hardly impressive or worth a repeat attempt.
