I purchased this bomber at Giant for 6.99, enjoyed chilled in a pair of glasses, shared with tenderbranson69.

The color is golden like white grape juice with light haze and thick 2 + fingers of pillowy white cap with average bead. The smell has a mineral note up front with subtle herbal /floral odor and subltle fruity yeast aroma. The feel is very good with moderate bitterness and light resinous texture with mild malt sweetness and medium carbonation with slightly full feel.

The taste is very green with slight fruity flavor with and mild creamy yeast notes with a good amount of pilsner malt flavor and slight spice tinge with mellow dry herbal flavor that lasts after the swallow. The hops give a strong green tea-like taste with mild pear tinge from the yeast. The drinkability is pretty high considering the abv of this strong pilsner. It is no Imperial Pils, but there is enough hop taste to stand up and I would drink this again considering it fits the style well

flat out the best pils ive had in ages. why? because its something totally different. huge props for malting your own grains, and this is unlike any pilsener ive had. it pours a hazy yellow, not quite mountain dew, but equally electric and almost artificial looking, cloudy, and light airy white bubbles on top. the nose is almost tart, acidic in some ways, hoppy, liberty hops I believe they use here, and its quite a bit more aggressive the original Czech versions. yeast is nice too, and works perfectly with a very interesting grain bill. the malt is very light, almost like wheat, but more potent in flavor and more acidic. very light and drinkable though, and the yeast gives it a bready complex that adds depth and body to an otherwise very light glass of beer. carbonation is excellent, and this just feels great in the mouth. this is a great series rogue puts on, and this is one of the best beers in it. I will start drinking this regularly if I can find it, just fantastic beer, an art form really.

On tap in Asheville.
Looks light a light lager with a small but durable head.
The aroma and flavor reflect a delicate, rather light pilsner. Nicely clean and refreshing. Longer lasting hop finish than expected. Light body but not watery. A little dry in the finish.

A: Briliantly clear straw yello color with tiny little bubbles shooting up from the bottom of the proper pilsner glass. The head poured an inch tall and receeded at a moderate pace leaving behind vertical striping lacing and a clump of foam on the top of the beer.

S: Very prominant noble, spicey hop aroma. very clean. Hints of zesty lemon and yeasty bread aroma

T: Omph! Refreshingly clean and moderatly bitter bitterness that stays consistant with the noble aroma. The hop flavor stays firm all the way through to the end but never gets over bering. The malt flavor is light and but never sweet. And there is an extremely clean fermentation character making this very very drinkable.

M: Light body with a very dry finish. moderate carbonation with some dryness left on the tounge from the bitterness.

O: Oh how I love a good pilsner, I definatly overlooked this one, but no more!! Clean, flavorful refreshing lager. Any one that clames to be a hop head and can't apreciate a good pilsner.. I just don't understand. Prost!

S: Pleasant, slightly herbal and earthy hops with some bready maltiness. Clean overall.

L: Hazy straw yellow, big white fluffy head with great retention and lacing.

T: Bready, slightly fruity malt, with a prominent, spicy, herbal hop flavor. Medium bitterness with a big herbal/spicy note into the finish. An almost tart finish, quite dry.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Ok, a little too hoppy and quite bracing for what i prefer for this style.
