Pennsylvania

4.1/5  rDev +22%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear golden color with a few bubbles rising lazily to the top. Head is about a finger and a half of white foam, which settles to just a thin, wispy lace but does leave some stick.

Smells of grain with a bit of malt sweetness, and some nice grassy and spicy noble hops.

Taste is also quite grainy and I can easily see some people finding this a bit skunky, but for me the abundance of grassy hops, which have just a bit of apple/pear fruitiness and some spice too, really round this out and make it quite enjoyable. Good amount of hop bitterness which lingers on the palate with some grain.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of a medium body, crisp and smooth. I really enjoy how hoppy this beer is, and I could easily drink quite a few. Very sessionable and solid beer here.

3.19/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Clean, pale gold beer pours from the glass, leaving a thin, off-white head that is well-retained. Pils malt lends typical aromas of bread and dough, with hints of grain and grass noticeable, and a decent amount of spicy hops as well. Bready flavors are met with grain and barley. The malt sweetness is tamed by the grassy and spicy hops in the finish. Light bodied, this pilsener is also moderately carbonated.
