a: hazy burnt yellow with some light brown notes in the middle. very large - 5 + finger soapy white bubbly rocky head

s: tons of sweet grains, lemongrass, pepper, vanilla, sweet citrus, grassy hops. something like a bubble gum cardboard.

t: very clean. vanilla, pilsner malt, grassy hop bitterness (more than id expect). there is a sweet spice in here that i can't put my finger on - like a sweet coriander, maybe. tons of fresh dough in here too. finishes with sweet grainy malt, earthy hops and just a hint of sweet citrus

m: light, but on the fuller side of light- with a lot of carbonation

o: more flavor packed in here your normal pilsner, ill say that. a little more bitter than expected, but the sweetness cuts it nice, and i like the hint of citrus mixed with the dough. its clean, but the large amount of carbonation makes it a little heavy to be extremely refreshing though. still a nice lighter beer, but nothing special

Color is an amber-tinged golden in the pint shaker, with a modest amount of foam. Quite spritzy on the tongue. A pleasant hoppy, resiny nose.

This seems more substantial than the less-powerful ABV would suggest. A mouth-filling malty sensation with just enough sweetness. Quite sharp after a few sips, but the resiny hops provide a tangy, aromatic flavor. Bitter aftertaste but more biscuity overall. Though the hops may not seem so European, this is a more complex quaff though perhaps more of a light Pale Ale.

Another strong entry in the Low-Alcohol Flavor Challenge. On tap at Pizza Port in Ocean Beach.
