Bitter up front that sharply runs off, a citrus note takes over. It is crisp, they do not lie,

Taste Rating in Words: It's a bronco ride, takes balance, there is up and down movement, with excitement, and if you're riding with my brother yelling.

I drank a lot of The Crisp while on spring break with the family this year. I was looking for a hoppy pilsner and this really fit the bill.

First off, I’m not a huge fan of the skinny cans, as they don’t really fit in my cozie when I’m beach or poolside. Poured into a glass, the beer is a hazy medium yellow with decent off-white head. It leaves spots of lacing.

The beer has an aroma of mild grains and spicy hops.

This is an amped up pilsner at 44 IBUs. The taste leads with some upfront bitterness that manages to be both sharply spicy and slightly citrusy. There is a cereal like taste from the malts that add some balance.

The mouth is medium with sharp (or is it crisp?) carbonation. It’s a touch astringent and cuts the grease in BBQ or a burger.

I like this beer and wish I had access to it on a regular basis.

I admire what this brewery has done with this Pilsner. Hazy. Light, golden amber with a foamy head & streak lacing. Aroma is floral and fruit, with hints of citrus, grass, and biscuit malt. The flavor is herbal and floral, with grass and berries as well. An excellent beer overall, quite enjoyable.

Meh..

Light yellow color , minimal quick fading white head, bunch of fine floaters in it..

Has the typical cheap lager/pilsner smell, little tiny bit of hops smell but mostly just that wet corn chip smell .

Taste follows the nose but there is a bit of bitter bite from the hops on the finish, more than I would have thought from the smell.

Feel is like bubbly water .

Overall I just grabbed a single to see what it was about.. Wouldn't buy it again, wiseacre tiny bomb was 100% better hoppy pils imo .

Sampled at Beertemple, Amsterdam. Clear golden pour with a white head. Notes of citrus and floral hops, light grains. Bitter-sweet leaning towards sweet.
