Another fun offering from DFH. I like that they kept it simple on this one. SOmetimes they think a little too far out of the box. I am a believer in less is more and that is just what this is, a simple idea made with quality ingredients.
Poured a nice golden yellow with a light fluffy white head.
Nice and citrusy smell from the hops, a little grain/breadiness as well. I wanted to disagree with previous posts but after drinking the beer a little bit and letting it warm up, I did detect some vanilla notes as the alcohol peeked through.
This is an easy drinker. It goes down smooth. But it has hops like Dee Brown. Out of the building. Hops are pumped up.
This was a christmas present from the wife, It is a gift that I might have to keep on giving... to myself, as long as it is on the shelf.
Thanks Sam, for all that you do.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
