look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance – Half finger head on a yellow, very slightly hazy body.

Aroma – Grapefruit and white pine. Sure was right about being heavy on hops.

Taste – Light bitterness, hop resins, and lighter malts. Not very complex.

Mouthfeel – Light and refreshing.

Overall – I thought there would be more layers to the flavor. Not a bad beer but somewhat average.

Big, bold, grassy aroma. Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Clean malt flavor going to tropical fruit, pine, and grass notes. A bit full bodied for a pilsner, but it is an imperial one. Overall, a very nice example of the style.

Tallboy poured into a Pilsner glass. Paired with tofu parm and Brussels sprouts.

Appearance: A hazy straw with a big foaming white head.

Aroma: Well, it’s super fresh. Hops, cut grass, spring leaves. VERY clean.

Taste: Floral, hoppy, grassy, full of bite. Some fruit, somewhat tropical. Herbaceous.

Mouthfeel: Perfect for style. Super drinkable at 7+.

Overall: A powerhouse. One of the best pilsners in New England. Get it.

16oz can into a pint glass. packaged 10/24/17, so 2 months old (not exactly "super" fresh)

Hazy yellow-orange body, small but persistent white head leaving excellent lacing.

Faintly fruity aroma.

Good tasting beer. doesn't really come off as a pilsener though. good hop bite, slight fruity and cattiness. dryish too.

well over medium on the mouth, slightly foamy. sour and bitter on the finish.

overall, i like the taste of the beer, but even at 2 moths old, it comes off as more of a pale ale than a pilsener.

Canned ~8 weeks ago.

L -- Pours a moderately hazed golden straw color with a two-finger white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Some retention and lacing
S -- Very well done here. Lots of juicy tropical fruits, including that nice garlicy pungency that comes with particularly well executed dry-hopping. Also a little bubblegum. I guessed mosaic was prevalent in the dry hopping given the fabulous aroma, but after consulting their site I've learned it's a combination of citra and chinook with simcoe and centennial added during the dry-hop. Nice!
T -- Starts with orange flesh and peel, followed by a decent amount of herbaceous and grassy notes. Crackery malts. Finish has a restrained, earthy character
F -- Mouthfeel is a little off, I think primarily because of a clashing of the light pilsner mouthfeel alongside the heavy hopping that's going on here. The end result is a fairly intense flavor palate that feels pretty watery. Medium+ carb
O -- A great offering from Peak Organic that I would definitely have again. More of an APA/IPL than a pilsner, but who cares? At 8-weeks-old this still has a remarkably fresh character to it. At two weeks fresh it must be absolutely stupendous

canned JUN 26th.

pours way too hazy for a pilsner, but hey what are guidelines these days? flavor is fairly fruity, nice citrus notes, biscuit grain, clean finish. nothing too 'pilsner' esque, but rather a mild IPA. i think that might have been the point here to some extent and I get that, but overall a good beer that is very easy to drink.
