Pours a clear golden yellow. Nose is of crackers, light floral and sulfer. Taste of cracker, white bread and floral notes. A bit of sulfer as the beer warms. Light to medium mouthfeel that finishes dry and fairly crisp. Not a bad Pilsgnar. I'd think something was wrong if I didn't get a bit of light sulfer I guess ;)

Pint at THG.

A: Clear pale golden yellow with a dense, fluffy, and long lasting white head. Wispy lace, great head retention.
S: Bready, crackery malt, slight corn chip quality, with a subtle herbalness and pine.
T: Crackery pilsner flavor with a kiss of earthy spice in the finish. Clean doughy yeast and bready malt, herbal and slightly citrus hops. Corn chip characteristic as well and just a kiss of fruity sweetness.
M: Chewy and fluffy mouthfeel, creamy, carbonation doughy and chewy. Very soft motuhfeel that isn't especially crisp or drying.
O: On the softer, creamier, and fuller side. If you want crisp and dry, you may not like this one.

A: Moderate floral and slightly spicy hops coupled with a clean malt aroma.

A: Very light straw color, totally clear, with a moderate dense white head that has adequate retention with lots of lacing in the glass.

T: Moderately hoppy floral and slightly spicy, fairly bitter with a semi-dry finish.

M: Medium bodied, a touch soft, with moderate carbonation

O: Solid; the beer beer is a little hoppier than most pilsners, but could be a bit crisper and have a slightly softer mouth-feel.

Pine bomb! Look is very light and smell is piney. Taste is all pine! Totally unique taste and feel. So many beers taste similar now days. This one has a taste like I have never had and it is KICK ASS!!! Well done Melvin as usual!!

Bottled and sent to me by the awesome Melvin Brewing!

Light, pale yellow colour, small but hanging in there foam.

Oh. The. Smell. If you like the aromas of pine needles/sap, this is for you as well as me.

Pine is in firm control of the taste. Not just hints of pine; like a sap soaked pine cone was the birthplace of this remarkable Pils. Oh and there's some bready notes here and there. ..

Medium light bodied with medium carbonation.

A flamin treat!

Edit: Now available in cans. 4.5 %abv.
