Poured into a Surly glass a very nice clean/clear pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice fizzy two-finger white head, and leaves a big island in the middle of the glass, very nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some nice hop notes, nice citrusy/grapefruit note. The taste is malty/hoppy, with some nice citrus notes. Medium body, with a slight bitter/dry finish. Overall a very nice thirst quencher, and true to style. Definitely would recommend, and buy again.

I will rate it a little higher just because it's my go-to and it's a year round pilsner for light hoppy refreshing beer that you will love, cheers!

Hoppier than a lager and more malty than an ipa. Bit of a strange taste.

12 ounce can pour into a Firestone Walker imperial half pint glass

A: Clear, golden yellow color, lots of carbonation streaming off the bottom, creamy bright white head, lots of lacing.

A: Malts, lemon, grass, herbs, grains, very grainy and herbal aromas, the lemon aromas underly the other aromas, some floral aromas, no alcohol on the nose.

A: Lemon zest bitterness up front, getting grassy, grainy, herbal flavors, finishes bitter, malts, some biscuit and bread notes, really good flavor.

M: Light body

O: Definitely more bitterness than I've tried in other lagers, more lemon zest, not as grassy and grainy as other lagers, it's good and another great beer from Firestone Walker.

Pale brass with towering craggy snow cap. Embroidery of lacing. Noble hops with bright lemon zest. Taste is a cornucopia of hoppiness which stays in glove and sits atop crackery malt. Mouthfeel is unmemorable. Overall this is an interesting twist on the style.
