12 oz bottle. bottled on 11/25/15.

A: pours crystal clear. bright white head, white lacing, good retention. looks like a pils.

S: earthy, herbal hops are very present. there is an unfortunate mild note of oxidation which is a bit of a bummer as this is not quite 2 months old. loads of fermentation notes as well. nothing fruity. smells pretty inviting.

T: the bitterness is perfectly fitting and nothing seriously lingering. flavor is similar to the aroma but the hops aren't as much of a focal point as the fermentation flavor.

M: really good light body with a modest carb.

D: overall a really good pilsner from a really good brewery. no complaints and I'm sure this stuff is lights out super fresh.

Pils don't get a lot of love since IPA steals the show. I cooked a very delicate tasting dinner and needed something light to compliment it, and this fit the bill very well. It's light, as expected, but very floral in flavor. This is not a boring pils. Good job, Firestone Walker.
