12 oz. Can

A slightly hazy, straw gold color, bubbly with a very substantial, creamy crystal white foam cover. Slow dissipation, plenty of good lacing.

A sweet 'n sour, bready pils malt aroma, cream of corn, herbal and zesty hop kick, cucumber and sweet, piney hop thing too.

This is a very clean feeling and tasting pils malt effect right off. An excellent balance of light, herbal and peppery malt with a little kick of dry, earthy and slightly fruity hops. The dry, earthy hop bite and peppery, zesty kick happens right at the end, after the light and clean malt tones ride off. Fresh, clean bite!

A very well balanced pils, traditional in most ways with just the right dry-hopped enhancement.

Pours nice with appealing color, carbonation, and head. Made in Portland, Maine. Dry-hopped, organic, and delicious.

I've been getting at Whole Foods in 12 oz cans. It's refreshing and tasty but a little pricey. I love a good Pilsner, Peak Fresh Cut is exceptional in a world with so many average and below.

Pours a slightly hazy pale straw. White head. Coniferous hop aroma dominates the nose. For a "Czech" pilsner, this is very American hop forward. More like a full flavored session IPL at this point than a pilsner. To me that's where I knock points off of Peak as these are labeled as pilsners instead of IPLs. I do really like this beer though.

This is the purest hop beer I've ever had the pleasure to meet. Fresh Cut is the perfect moniker. No fruity aromas, no spicy notes. Just....dank....hops. Yessssss

Canned ~7 weeks ago.

L -- Pours a very slightly hazy straw color with a two-finger white head produced with gentle pour. Minimal retention and some lacing.
S -- Mild grapefruit, grass, pine, and papaya
T -- Pilsner malts and grassy hops. Simple and straightforward. The overall character is definitely improved by the dry hopping
F -- Light mouthfeel. Medium+ carb. Very drinkable, but a little watery on the tail end
O -- Nice New England-made pils

75/100

Pouring a cellar temp can into a snifter. The beer pours a little hazy but sits in the glass a bright clear golden hue. A fluffy bleached white head of 3 cm foams up even with a very gentle pour. The foam fades quickly leaving large pockmarked craters on the surface and some windowpane lattice on the glass.
The aroma is fairly mild with some pilsner malt and a bit of grassy hops. Also a little bit of spiciness but overall a little underwhelming on the nose.
The first sip reveals a light crisp textured body with very fine and tingly carbonation. VERY easy to drink this beer.
Flavor is a brief bit of biscuity malt which rolls to rindy and spicy hops that linger with a little bitterness long after each swallow. No booze to be found at any point and at 4.9% this is probably a pretty easy session beer. Id want a little more on the nose to bump up my rating but overall it is fine for what it is.
