Foamy on top and a crystal clear pale yellow on the bottom. Grass, lemon and melon to the nose. Clean all the way through with some light fruits and a touch of spice. Well made and flavorful. I can see quite a few of these in my future.

Sampled back on 1/7/16. Comes in a 12 ounce (355ml) can. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a flute glass.

Brew pours a straw-yellow in color with about a good close to a 1-finger foamy/creamy white head. Some spotty lacing was seen when sipped. Aroma is like a pale ale actually with floral hops, pine and citrus zest. Going to go with that description for the taste as well. More like a Pale or even a IPA style brew. Medium hoppy bitterness and semi-dry for the finish. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall, it was OK.

Tall soapy head of 3 fingers, an 80% transparent blonde/straw colored body. Some sediment floating around nicely.

Pineapple and pine hop aromas, a touch of orange peel, followed by an overpowering whiff of stale barley.

Quite a bit of fruitiness on the taste, with tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, citrus; pine stabs as well, and then a finish stale blonde grain.

Quite a bit of creaminess as well as crispness on the eel. I like it, quite a bit.

Overall, this is again a very WEST coast style beer. Reminds me of my time in Seattle and Portland. Lots of hop profile, lots of bitterness. Still an exciting beer, though.

This is beautiful bright yellow hued brew with a pure white head which poured into a Ravenhead stein. The head was an impressive one finger in height with small bubbles.

A delicious faint odor of fresh lemons and grass.

Terrific. Lives up to its name. Almost zero hop bitterness. Perhaps I'm focusing on the malts which remind me of bread or biscuits. I know the hops are there but I appreciate the crispness.

Great Feel. Slick, fresh, refreshing. A great choice for a change from IPA overdose.

I tried this beer because I am getting really dried out since the heat came on this winter and I need a refreshing change to IPAs. I don't sense the hops that others are pointing out. They seem subdued in the presence of the malts.

a: a mostly-clear golden amber color with some straw yellow notes. 1 finger solid, yet bubbly white head

s: crisp grains, dry crackers, lemongrass, slightly sweet malts. nice balancing earthy hop aroma as well. i'm also picking up some slighty juicy hops as well.

t: there is a refreshing grainy, grassy flavor upfront. behind that is a light malt backbone that brings some mild sweetness. behind that is a slight earthy/herbal bitterness that is very faint, but just the right level to cut the malts. there is a small tropical note from the hops as well - very slight. there is a dry crackery note towards the end as well

m: medium mouthfeel. carbonation seems a bit light for a pilsener, but there is some body to this beer. more than usual

o: its refreshing and straightforward. nothing over the top. as advertised, it is definitely a crisp beer. solid example of the style, however it could use a bit lighter mouthfeel and tone down a bit on the hops that are providing a juicy-like presence (i don't like my pilseners going down an ipa route)
