Notes: We love hops so much that we loaded up our 6th Borough Pilsner with them. Dry hopped with Mosaic and Crystal hops, this bright, crisp, hoppy pilsner will transport you to the ‘burbs and leave you in a laid-back 6th Borough state of mind.

Pale yellow with thin white head. Doughy malt and a kiss of lemongrass in the hops in both the aroma and the taste. Mildly bitter, and nice and dry. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very solid.

If it is an authentic Bohemian Pils you seek, this is not your huckleberry. If a delicious, crisp, pils-y beer with juicy American hop aromatics and a dry floral pils bite is acceptable, then this is quite good. Sad I first tried this after the reasonable dawn of oktoberfest season. Though, with the long summers of NC, i might could enjoy a sixer or two of this before my existence is no longer blanketed in perpetual sweat.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: It pours light golden with a white pillow head. Head retention is good. It also has good clarity.

Smell: The aromas are strong citrus and grainy sweet malt. There are also some spicy and piney aromas as well.

Taste: It is hop forward with spicy and piney flavors leading the way. There are also some grainy sweet flavors and a bit of citrus as well. Bitterness level is moderately high. There are low levels of wheat as well as hints of honey in the background.

Feel: It has a moderately light body with a moderately bitter finish.

Overall, it is well hopped and those flavors are the ones that shine. The taste is more like an American Pale Ale or American IPA.

I know this style is not very exciting to many people and I get it. I am a fan of this brerwery and they have been kicking it up a notch with many of their recent oferings. I had this at a restaurant on tap. It was super refreshing . A super nice bright golden yellow color. A very crisp taste with some bits of citrusy, sweetness and bready . The mouthfeel is light, crisp, and fizzy. A nice replacement for some of the domestics that are nothing but water.

Pours a cloudy gold. Smell is a bit hoppy and taste follows. Pretty smooth. Not what I was expecting but pretty decent.

Pilsner look, mostly see through with not much head. Not much from the nose...beery. Flavor has some spice, pretty decent, good carbonation. Eh

Damn good beer. Nothing to write home about, but very good flavor. Like an ipa, but it’s not. Very flavorful, not watery at all. Had low expectations, as this far exceeded them.

Big head that clears quickly. Clean & crisp. Strong hop flavors with an after taste that aaalmost gets close to being too astringent, but pulls back at the last moment.
Overall a very good example of an American pilsner, but not really a very good Bohemian pils

12 oz can. Clear. Smells of aggressive hops. Tropical fruit, some garlic. Light golden malt. Tastes of pilsner malt, kinda sweet. Tropical fruit hops with an aggressive grapefruit lingering bitterness. Aggressive hops and a mediocre malt profile. But it's ok.

Canned 1/8/19

Slightly hazy with substantial, but quickly-dissipating white head.

Smell is bready, fruity (pear + apple juice) , and goldenrod flowers. (sweet floral hop aroma) Smells like a helles.

Taste is similar to aroma, but less sweet, + grapefruit pith, dried lemon rind, & light bitterness.

Feel is light ,with fine, medium carbonation, that provides soft tingle.

Overall, I like it but seems to be straddling too many lines, and doesn't seem to go anywhere. A good substitute, if a session IPA can't be had, but not what I would ordinarily want in a pils.

Pours a semi-hazy golden color with a two-finger head, little lacing, hoppy smell, clean and crisp mouthfeel, hoppy Pilsner, very versatile for food pairings, a Very good Pilsner.
