4.03/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear gold with a thick, bubbly white head.

S: Aromas of lemon, grass, straw, minerals, biscuits, pear tea, hay, herbs, crackers, and rose water fill the nose.

T: Notes of rose water, pear juice, pear tea, leather, ripe lemon, crackers, biscuits, minerals, straw, hay, honey, herbs, and cream fill the mouth. The finish is dry and smooth with noticeable pear, cracker, biscuit, mineral, and lemon notes.

M: Very smooth and light-to-medium in body for the style. Carbonation is spritzy. Super easy to drink.

O: An awesome experimental pils. It will probably get downgraded a bit for being a Dogfish Head product, but this is a lager not to miss.

4.05/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, pale malt, yeast, hint of floral, hint of citrus, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of a Czech Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, yeast, hint of hops, hint of citrus, and a hint of floral. Overall, good aroma, body, blend, and appearance. Refreshingly crisp and strong in flavor.
