08/05/15 From a can, at home. There's been a lot of beer over the old taste buds since my last look at this offering from Sixpoint. I can double down on my assessment of the robustness of the well balanced flavors. To me the aroma took a while to take hold, even after a few minutes at room temperature but that did not deter my enjoyment. This is a very quaff-able beer. Every swallow invites you back for another. The solid texture reminds me more of an ale than what I think of as a pilsner. Not less than, just different.

The rich taste & texture leave a very pleasant afterglow, which still leaves me wondering about the name, but a great beer, by any other name tastes as good, so I'll do less label reading & live it up.

Thank you Sixpoint.

04/27/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Surprised to see I've not noted this before. Glad I'm now adding it to the chronicle as on the first sip I remember why.

This brew has a lot of flavor & body but a misnomer for a name. Crisp is nowhere in sight. This may be someones cup of tea, but that someone ain't me.

Appearance: deep orangish yellow color. A full 3 finger foamy head that fades fairly quickly and leaves just a small lacing behind. Strong, almost perfect clarity. 3.75/5

Smell: earthy pilsner malts. Hops mostly spicy but with a slight hint of citrus. 4/5

Taste: a nice light pilsner malt sweetness, some earthy and grassy hints. Lots of strong and bold hop flavors. Starts off with a fairly subtle citrus and quickly becomes a bold and strong spicy noble hops. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: light to medium light body. Good crispness. Slight dryness, slight lingering bitterness. It's a certainly refreshing. Pretty good clean feel. 4/5

Overall: a solid pilsner offering. Great to see a nice refreshing well done lager so easily found. Great for a barbeque or post run in the summer.
