Thin bright white head dusts the surface, meager lacing. Shiny gold color with a semi-metallic sheen, large amount of bubbles throughout but no beads, spotless and transparent. The nose is clean with a focus on orange citrus, unprocessed grains, hay, pine and a touch of quinine, peach pit and apple accents, sticks around pretty well given its on the whole tactful presentation. Medium-bodied and perhaps fuller than many for the style, creates pleasing downwards pressure. More citrusy here with lemon joining the orange, sweetening aspect. Hint of corn syrup. The grains get to breadiness but not in an overtly yeasty manner, retains a crisp mouth feel. Carbonation is a light too fine but brings consistent prickle and tingle. Any fruit mainly apple, apricot, maybe melon, nothing close to tropical. Would benefit from a drier finish, instead the general sweetness accrues. Easy to drink and you could easily finish a bomber without really noticing. Not a beer going for “wow” factor but not quite traditionally fashioned either, a good twist on the theme.

Bottle shared at August THT. Clear pale yellow with a white head. Hoppy, fruity and floral, notes of honey. Medium body, low carbonation and a hoppy finish.

Crystal clear. I'd like more malt in the nose. Taste is classic Pils. Slightly prickly on tongue. Sometimes extreme, 3 Floyds stayed in the style.

A - standard pilsner clear golden color with a. White head that leaves a nice lacing
S - honestly pretty nice, peppery, lemon, light grains, white wheat, pretty much the definition "crisp"
T - nice crisp hop bite, lemon, light grains, light white pepper, wheat
M - light, alcohol is covered, aftertaste is light beer with a little American pilsner hop bite
O - it's a pilsner, light but waaay more flavor than a bud or miller. Reminds me of the Cream of Three Crops homebrew recipe.

A - Clear orange body, light, with a head, lots of lacing.

S - Big hop notes of tropical fruit, pine, and spice.

T - Flavor is more traditional than the nose, with apple-pear fruit in the open, a mild, sweet middle of white bread, crisp close.

M - Moderate carbonation, mild stickiness in the close.

O - Dig this. Surprised the hop nose still produces a surprisingly true pilsener flavor.
