A- Pours a pale gold with about a finger of white head that quickly dissipates. Left some beautiful lacing on the glass.

S- Smell has a mild citrus aroma.

T- Has a little bit of a citrus hop bite and is one of the tastier Pilsners I have ever tried.

M- Mouthfeel is light and and has medium-heavy carbonation. This would make a great session lager for the summer months.

O- This is not my favorite style of beer but I could definitely drink this all day long. I have never had a beer by Three Floyd's that I didn't like and this one was no exception.

Poured from a growler into a New Belgium snifter. Pale gold color. Slightly hazy. Nice effervescence. One finger of creamy head. Nice retention. The nose has nice, sweet, clean, cracker-like malt notes. A bit of hoppy spiciness too.

Light to medium body. Good firm feel. Nice clean malt flavors up front. At mid-palate, flowery hops come in and provide a nice peppery finish. Very smooth, drinkable, and refreshing.

Pilsners are not my favorite style and I do not seek them out, but I found this one to be quite enjoyable. Neither the malt nor the hops are ever lost in this beer. Both are evident and noticeable. A well-crafted pilsner that should appeal to fans of the style.
