4.05/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a great 1.5 finger head with great retention. The lacing is perfect. The head never dies.

Smell is a bit grainy of light pilsner malts with some noble hops underneath. A floral aroma is very present . A little bit of fruitiness that is pleasant

Taste is light grains and noble hops. The bitterness is apparent and the malt profile is clean. A fair amount of residual sugar is left to balance things out.

Mouthfeel is great. Crisp with just enough residual sugars.

Overall this is a great example of the style. Other examples of the style are a bit dryer and a little easier on the hops. I'm pleased with this interpretation.

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.

12oz can. Pours a hazy straw gold topped with clingy white foam head. Pleasant noble hop aroma with a soft breadiness. Crisp and light, but not too light. Lemon rind bitterness upfront that's a bit rough on the palate with a raw leafiness, some grass, herbal and floral flavors. Mostly dry, but there's some malty sweetness and cereal grain folded into a bready malts. Dry, grainy finish.

A bit rough around the edges, but this is a good stab at a German-style Pils with a ton of drinkability.

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.
