look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

I've really liked this brewery, and I am very excited to see a craft pilsner offered for sale in my local supermarket.

Appearance is very, very nice. The head was so big I had to wait to pour in the last third of the can, and it lasted quite a while, leaving lots of sticky lacing.

Aroma is also very nice, great spiciness and hop aromas, along with the grains and grasses you expect from German pilsners.

The taste doesn't disappoint either. You could almost pull it off as a pale ale if you served it in a white can with no label, it's that hoppy. And the spiciness from the hops really accents the grains and grassy flavors perfectly. There's somewhat of a citrusy flavor in the background too, offering a nice complexity to a delicious beer.

Body is perfectly pils, light and well carbonated (but not over-carbonated).

Awesome job again, RABC. Definitely I will be buying this one a lot in the coming months, as I assume that brewer's cut altbier will run out sooner or later!

As always, support your local breweries, especially when they're this good!

Doom glass

A: Pours slightly hazy bright almost neon yellow. Full finger if bright white head. Fluffy. Sticky lacing. Good carbonation.

S: Noble hops. Grainy grassy malts. Maybe some lemon and citrus notes. Smells clean.

T: Prickly carbonation and Noble hops on the tip of the tongue. Grassy grainy malts. Biscuity. Crisp clean finish. Good pils.

M: Light bodied. High carbo.
