Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Pilsener Glass. A rough, vertical pour yielded a white 2 finger head. Beer is lemon-yellow gold with faint carbonation. As I drank this a maginficient shroud of lacing coated the whole glass.
Aroma: typical pilsener/lager with crackery malt, grassiness and herbal hopiness.
Taste: unlike many other Pilseners I have drank the Hops here leap out front and initially blast the malt off the palate but the finish is long & malty. The finish is a nice mix of bready malt and herbal hoppiness.
Notes: This Pilsener gets it right. Strongly hopped but not over the top and unpleasant like Prima Pils. This has more character than Stoudt's Pils and is different enough than Brooklyn Pilsener to make it another fine Pilsener to keep around. The bottle says a Crisp, Hoppy Pilsener and I would say it is hoppier than it is Crisp but the Hops taste of the Noble variety and don't wallop you with nastiness. This is a joyful, fun, quaffable Summertime beer.

3.8/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled awhile ago, 4/16. Poured 7/31.
Appearance: Pours a very pale yellow color, true to the style. Soapy white head floats on top with a good amount of lacing, and tons of carbonation streaming up from my laser etched glass.
Smell: Still smells fresh. Hay, wheat-like aroma, pale malts, and a slight hoppy note as well. Like many in the style, simple, light, but pleasant.
Taste/feel: Talk about a refreshing beer. Light on flavor, maybe even so for the style, but what's there is super tasty. No corny sort of flavor that sometimes comes through for me in the style, just crisp as hell.... and I hate the word "crisp." Light biscuit malt character with hay and a liiiittle bit of hops. Mmm, a fantastic summer beer. The feel is also awesome.. Super drinkable with what initially seemed like a thin body, but it's not quite watery. Solid carbonation, on-point for the style.
I've been drinking loads of crap like Leinenkugel Summer Shandy, Labatt Blue, and even -- gulp -- Bud Light recently, so this hit the proverbial spot, and I'm probably overrating this a bit because of that fact.
