Appearance: Hazy straw yellow color. Hard to say what the head looks like since the bartender did an awful job pouring it. All that's left is a thin ring of white lace.

Smell: Light grainy malt and distinctive flowery/spicy noble hops. Clean, no fruity esters, no diacetyl.

Taste: Dry from start to finish. Crisp with a long-lasting bitterness from the noble hops that lasts into the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. Low bodied.

Overall: Crisp, clean, refreshing beer that prominently features noble German hop bitterness. Loses big points in the appearance for lack of a head (maybe due to bartender error), and the hazyness. It also looses out a tad in the mouthfeel department. Still, it's a phenomenal summer beer, and at 5.3% ABV you can toss back 2 or 3 without becoming inebriated.

Drank on tap at the Flying Saucer in Addison.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy and earthy hops with some flowery notes. The flavor is grapes and biscuit malt but it is very bitter. The bitterness is well above what I expect in a pilsener and detracts from the overall flavor of the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The bitterness in this beer needs to be toned way down before I can enjoy it.
