3.68/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear gold with some chill haze, thin stark white head leaves broken bits of lacing.

Mild aroma, spicy hop, light grain

Spicy hops in the taste, clean and crisp. Firm bitterness up front with a light maltiness underneath.

Light bodied, easy drinker at only 4.2% ABV. Crisp, refreshing and would be a great summertime beer, tons of flavor at a macro light ABV.

thanks to radioscooter for this bottle

A - Fairly decent carbonation just a 1/4 inch of head that settles rather quickly. Bright clear yellow with mild bubbles.
S - A bit of pilsner malts, soft hop notes, swear I smell corn. Little to no skunk which is nice.
T - Very dry, slightly sour like a green apple flavor with notes and a minty sort of hop tone. Its actually quite good.
M - Light and fizzy easy to quaff back.

Overall quite a tasty brew worth picking up!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Dark gold in color, a little darker than I expected. The foamy head froze on the surface at an inch height. Lacing is impressive.

Green and floral hops with grassy notes and an authentic German pilsener malt. Very pleasing.

Nice and dry. Crispy with a bitter aftertaste. Pleasantly pilsener-esque with light grassiness and hardly any metallic flavors. Not very bright, just malty with a splinter of hops. Very balanced and drinkable. Nice body, if not a bit too milky. Carbonation is on the side of unplugged. It works.

Pretty solid. Without the usual craft fuck-ups for the style, however, it's slightly bland. Still hits the spot.
