Not a huge pilsner fan, but very refreshing after a long bike ride.

12 oz can purchased from Whole Foods and poured into a stemmed Spiegelau Pilsner glass. Interesting spin on German Pilsener -- sort of German Pilsener meets pale ale. Enjoyable and would drink again, but would go with a Victory Prma Pils if that were available.

Revisited 09-29-2015 :

This beer is much improved. look is less hazy - nearly clear with a yellow orange. The coriander is balanced. There is a bit of banana light on the front. For a pilsner, this beer is a good beer.

Orig. Review from 2013:

l = hazy, low carbonation

s = coriander why did it have to be coriander.

t = it is a pils - not a big pils fan - coriander taste

f = alcohol is not hidden.

o = not my favorite style.

This is my third beer from sixpoint. Last week I had Resin and was a little let down. This one reminds me of Ol' Factory Pils from Two Roads but isn't as tasty. A bit of grain bill coming through and a hint of hops at the end. Crisp and dry finish, but I feel like it just doesn't live up to the other heavy hitters. I will try Bengali next. This one's good but not remarkable.

Taste - lightly sweet upfront, grains, biscuit/cracker, wheat, grass, grain

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly sweet upfront, hoppy on the back end

Overall - decent interpretation of a German pilsener

Poured from a 12oz. slim can into a mug.

A: Pours a lively gold color with a 1 finger head of white foam. The head quickly fades to a thin film on top of the beer. Lots of carbonation bubbles and a good amount of lacing.

S: Aromas of herbal hops and biscuity malts.

T: Flavors of herbal hops with a solid backbone of biscuity malts. Good balance with moderate bitterness.

M: Crisp mouthfeel with a light body and high carbonation. The body is light but doesn't feel thin on the palate.

O: Overall I thought this was a good lager with crisp flavors of herbal hops and a solid malt backbone. It is perfect on a hot summer day and very refreshing. Another great beer from Sixpoint, I will definitely buy this again.
