look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A- Clear golden body with a fizzy white head.
S- Tons of grass hops with hints of citrus fruits, a little alcohol, and a sweet caramel malt body.
T- A really sweet almost sickly malt base with alcohol coming through. Quite a bit of hops come through and leave a nice size bitterness on mid tongue.
M-Full body with low carbonation.
D- I'm not to found of this. I think after Sam Adams Imperial Pilsner nothing is really going to be able to stand up to that.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Poured a pale bronze-gold with a tightly woven white head that was sticky leaving a rim lacing behind.

S: dry grains with some light doughiness and hints of spicy alcohol.

T: The initial flavor had a light breadiness to it, floral hopping and dried citrus. Very smooth and refined flavor and not as hoppy as one would expect. There was a light dry grains and grassiness detected in the finish with a gentle lingering fade of pale malts and light citrus flowers.

M: Crisp mouthful

D: Great drinkability
