Shared by Alex on a Friday night tasting...Pours a bright neon yellow, definetly highlighted by the clear east end growler that it is in. Pours with a suprising amount of carbonation for a growler, very good retention...The aroma is super hoppy, you can really tell it was dry hopped, maybe a tab bit too much hops. Almost smells like a true pilsner and I get a distinct hint of marjiuania on the finish....The taste is too hoppy for me and has a weird bite to it, I guess that's from the dryhopped and cask combo. Has some lemon to it... A pretty crisp drinker. An interesting combo here, worth trying but probably wouldn't drink this very often.

Big thanks to Beerloco for this unsolicited surprise growler. Apparently this is cask-conditioned and unfiltered as well(?), but I'm not sure if that should be noted in the title. Served in a stein.
A - Pours with a finger-plus of eggshell foam that settles a thick ring and hazy partial cap, leaving behind spotty lace. Straw yellow body that is slightly hazed. There are chunks of sediment in the growler (hops? yeast?).
S - Lots of cereal grain malt character, with some dank earthy hop as well as orange and lemon citrus character.
T - Taste is more cereal grain, but with a lemony finish. There's a little generic beer flavor in the aftertaste, along with some light bitterness.
M - Soft light body, lower carbonation - not sure if this is a result of the cask-conditioning. Dry finish, with lots of residual enamel-coating hop oils.
D - This is super drinkable. I can't imagine it's higher than 4.5%, and combined the soft texture and low carbonation it's pretty easy to slam down on a hot day. The dry-hopping certainly enhances the nose, but the flavor is still fairly generic German lager. Liked it more than The Invasion.
Not sure how they growler-filled cask beer, but there was definitely foam and carbonation present, so however it was done it was a more successful than the growler I got from Flat Branch.
