look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Extraordinary clarity. Bright lemon yellow with beautiful white head. Retention above average, and average lacing.

S: Very straightforward and true to style with grainy malts leading the way. Some light spice and floral notes from hops.

M: Underwhelming carbonation actually builds as you let it breathe to become medium-high. Slight astringency in the finish.

T/O: Grains, biscuits, well-attenuated maltiness, but high bitterness. Good hop flavor that can be a little harsh with its straightforwardness-arrowroot, herbal character. One of the more accurate American re-creations of the style. Good lingering bitterness, tart lemon aftertaste. No doubt a pils for those who appreciate Noble hops.

Pours a brilliant lemony straw with a billowing ivory head that lingers.

Floral hops and crackery pilsner malt dominate the aroma. There's a hint of skunk.

Flavor reveals hop bitterness throughout. The base is crackery, dry malt. There's a slight sour/minerally note that is intriguing.

Body and carbonation are moderate. There's a bit of astringency in the finish.

Not a bad example of the style, but the sour character is out of place. Bitterness is certainly dominant.

Golden yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with billowy, bright froth that maintained throughout as a steady stream of bubbles continuously migrated upward. Fresh biscuity malt and earthy floral hop aromas. Incredibly soft, delicate feel throughout with a light tanginess through the middle. Biscuity malt flavor up front followed by tangy, but gentle spicy hops. Spicy flavors transition to herbal hop flavors toward the end. Finished clean and crisp with a light biscuit malt aftertaste and herbal bitterness on the edges. Super easy drinking. If not the best, one of the best pilseners I've ever had.
