4.18/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Currently this is at 5% ABV. I originally thought this was a Pilsner that uses blue corn, but it is just a straight up traditional offering.

A: Pours a beautifully clear golden/yellow color. A dense two finger white head forms with excellent retention and rings of lace left down the glass.
S: Saaz hops all the way up front. Grassy, earthy, spicy hop aromas. Grains and bread mixed in for balance. Very nice.
T: Like the nose lots of grassy hops. Earthy, with a peppery spice, and lemon rind. Grains, baked bread and biscuit malts to balance everything out, with a sturdy lingering bitterness.
M/O: A light to medium body. Excellent carbonation, supper clean and dry. Really easy to drink and put a few away. I can come back to this a lot.

A really well made pilsner that showcases Saaz hops well. Another excellent offering from Blind Pig, and another reason why I wish this is a local I can get all the time.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Hazy dark gold, compact head of foam, spotty lacing.
Crisp and clean with a little bit of biscuity malt and lemony hop aroma.
Grassy and lemony noble hop bitterness, biscuity malt, dry finish.
Light bodied, smooth and easy drinking with a medium carb level.
Pretty much an exemplary Pils to me, fairly hoppy, crisp and dry.
