Very nice pils. It has a clear yellow colour with a nice white head. Really balanced all along with a nice bready smell and taste complimented by an herbal and floral hop presence. The carbonation is gentle and the mouthfeel compliments very well the taste.
Overall it's one of the best pilsener I've had. Might become my reference for the style

On tap @ the Arrogant Butcher, Phoenix AZ.

The only hop character I could pull out of this was a Noble hop, very earthy and bitter and towards the end of the palate. Nothing special to me.

I usually don't get this low ABV stuff but after reading some of these reviews I thought I'd give it a shot. Bottled 95 days ago, so it could be fresher. Into a pint glass:

L: Very transparent with a faint golden yellow tint. Looks like carbonated pee. Only one finger of soapy snow-white head, but it persists incredibly well and bubbles excessively. Very attractive lacing and lots of it, for such a thin beer.

S: Doesn't smell very hoppy at all. I get a beery fresh-cut grass aroma mixed with a bit of lemon peel and apricot surrounded by a very mild sweet biscuity malt. Smells a little oxidized. Not bad.

T: This takes me back. I remember a time when I would have said it tastes like a better bud light platinum. I haven't had beer this plain in a while. It has excellent balance. A fresh green bell pepper flavor comes out first (although touched by that slight skunky oxidized lager), stringing along zesty lemon and (underripe) white grape, followed by a flash of cut grass. However, the strength of this beer is really in the clean doughy malt finish, which ends in some melon notes. Mostly honeydew.

F: Very nice texture for the style. The other way in which this beer is exemplary. A little watery for me, but otherwise very nice.

O: This is actually the first Pilsener I've ever had. Tastes like a pretty normal beer, but done right. I like it.

From Labirratorium. Ik Teku glass. Playing Forge of Gods. Just slightly hoppy, without losing the pils character like in other hoppy pilsens, providing just some grassy notes. Crushable
