look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours straw pale golden with one finger white head that retains nicely.

Smell has some mellow lager bready yeast along with a big grassy hop aroma with some light floral notes.

Taste has a big assertive grassy hop flavor forward with lots of bitterness. Bready yeast flavor and hoppy herbal flavor leave this incredibly bitter.

Mouthfeel is bitter crisp and decently balanced with high amounts of hoppy oils and resin.

Neighbor brought a growler home from Solemn Oath. The beer poured a light-golden color with thin white head that dissipated toward the bottom. The scent had a subtle piney notes mixed with typical pilsner grassy tones. The taste had the common grassy hop character of most pilsners, but this was balanced nicely with a sweeter malt. The mouthfeel was a medium body beer with ok carbonation. Overall it was a very good beer and would highly recommend it.
