Poured into a tulip shaped pint glass - color is straw gold, a bit hazy for true pilsner, head is off white with fine bubbles and presents about 1/4 inch thick and then lingers with a slight top and some lacing on the glasses.

Smell is quite floral, herbal, light pine from the hopping, moderate crackery malt in the background.

Taste is similar herbal, grassy, floral in hop flavor, which presents upfront, then malt follows with light biscuit and cracker qualities. Definitely a hoppy pils but the backbone of the pils style is there though a bit more subtle than others in the style.

Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, light sweetness then dry and lightly bitter hop presence on the tongue. Lingering presence.

Overall a quality beer with a floral and grassy hopped take on the czech pilsner style.

Had a couple 12 oz cans at local restaurant near Philadelphia. Wasn’t sure what to expect with the first but loved it so much that I had another. Perfect pairing with fish tacos. Very hop forward and clean and dry. Pours a hazy straw color with a nice head. I want more!

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.
