3.33/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 11.2oz short and stubby green bottle. Bottled on date on the back label.
Appearance: Extremely pale yellow, bright and clear with a thin creamy, sticky pure white lace.
Smell: A near pungent, yet oddly soft, nose of distince Saaz hops. Biscuity grain in the background.
Taste: Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, with a light body and thin texture. Hops are pretty intense with a sharp, spicy, salty, lemony/rind-like character and near puckering bitterness. Light flower flavours. No malt sweetness is perceived. Slight cooked veggie flavour creeps in as the beer warms (DMS) -- hint of adjuncts? Crisp and dry with a grainy feel to it. Finish has pleasant herbal flavours all over the palate.
Notes: I wasn't overly impressed by this beer, but I did like it. It lacks balance in the malt department, and goes big on the hops. Still a decent beer and its hop character certainly stands out amongst the standard Pils on the shelves these days.
Thanks to Dane @ B. United for the sample.

(bottle code L125652 F03 - poured into a fluted pils glass)
A: crystal clear yellow-gold liquid, faint jade highlights... open, fizzy head on pour, falls out to thin dusting of bubbled atop... no lace
S: lemon peel, mildly sulfurous lager yeast... wet, leaf-like hops... fresh, doughy dinner rolls... overall, mild intensity of aromas - kinda reminds me of Beck's
T: notable malt presence, enveloped in a coat of delicately bitter hops with a leafy, tree bark note to them... lingering, inner citrus (lemon/lime) peel tang and bitterness, perhaps a touch coin-like metallic... toward the end, the bitterness becomes delightfully more assertive, achieving a pleasant (marginally top heavy) balance with the pale malt and faint skunk, before trailing off a bit in the final few sips
M: light-medium, dumpy roundness... beautifully crisp, dry flow and finish even without a hell of a lot of sizzle from the carbonation
O: surprisingly hoppy and nearly fresh tasting despite the green bottle and questionable handling care... I could sell this as a special, however, I wouldn't go above and beyond to recommend
