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.

It is rare for me to be buying bottled beer, so this purchase (and subsequent review) must have something to do with its name and its labeling.

From the bottle: "Brewed with 2 varieties of hops and 2 types of malts"; "Craft Revolution and an "Anarchy" A".

I got a finger-and-a-half of rocky, bone-white head from my aggro pour which evidenced low retention due to the humidity of the day. Color was a pale lemon-yellow with NE-quality clarity and lots of carbonation in evidence. This sissy was looking forward to this fizzy yellow beer. Ya heard, Greg Koch? Nose had a very pleasant lemon-citrusiness and my mouth was watering at the prospect. Mouthfeel was thinner than all of the carbonation had led me to expect, but the taste was like a lemon tart/muffin/biscuit as the hops really interacted well with the malt in the mouth. Finish was semi-dry and not just refreshing but welcomed in the increasing humidity of this summer afternoon. Quite good and worth having again.

Bottle into a pilsener glass. DOB on bottle is 1/18/12.

Appearance: Clear body. Yellow in color. Average frothy white head that fades to basically nothing. No lacing. Lots of little carbonation bubbles flowing throughout.

Aroma: Spicy, floral hop. Lemon zest, biscuit and pilsener malt.

Taste: Quick spicy hop bite, somewhat floral and wet. Then kinda dulls and fades into a slightly sweeter malt character. Biscuit-y.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body. Soft carbonation kind of dulls it down but it's easily drinkable. and the flavors work well together. Finish is sweet dry biscuit.

A: Brilliant clarity on a golden-maize color shows a gentle whisper of effervesce. The head is oatmeal in color, frothy and patchy and quick to dissipate leaving no window lacing. Expected a bit more pop carbonation wise and head retention.

S: Green flowers on the nose, soft hay, very low grainiess, could of used a better and cleaner grain character and lacked the spicy hops of a good Czech pils.

T: A bit of moldy grain character, not very clean or crisp at all. Maybe that’s why they call it a euro-trash. Dry hay with a bit of funky mildewy hop finish and aftertaste.

M: Flat carbonation, but does have some substance body wise, still meh, lacks crispness.

O: Overall not very tasty, a bit of funky moldy hops, low carbonation and unclean malt profile leaves much to be desired. A shame because I usually like a lot of southern tiers beers, just goes to show you the real craftmenship is in brewing the lighter bodied beers where flaws cannot hide. Blah not even close.

Poured from the bottle a light clear gold color with three fingers of white head.

Aroma of lemon, biscuit, floral hops and sweet malts.

The taste matched the aroma. Lemon, floral hops, biscuit and sweet malts. Bitter bite to the finish.

Lighter bodied and crisp with a sharp carbonation.

I enjoyed this Czech Pilsner from Southern Tier quite a bit. I'll definitely have more this summer.
