Notes: The newest addition to our hoppy pilsner series, Skopos is abundantly hopped with the ever-classic Czech Saaz. Pilsner dominates the malt bill, but a small percentage of Vienna lends a gentle complexity and a touch of sweetness to the grist. The result is incredibly smooth–a slightly herbal punch up front that gracefully ebbs into a soft, crackery finish. As with all of our pilsners, we utilized a traditional rising-temperature step mash.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with lots of specks of white bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of grassy and floral hops and grainy malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is a near mirror image of the smell and the hops also contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked how the taste of this pilsner had a good balance between the malts and hops.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden orange, with a small fluffy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like big grassy hops, slightly sweet breadiness, minerals, and crackers.

This tastes like lemon rind, grassy hops, grainy and crackery malt, light citrus, and some malt sweetness. It's very well constructed. It doesn't necessarily feel like a traditional take, as it's very bright and hoppy, but it's still really well done. The malt character feels spot on and traditional - just slightly sweet, crackery, and with a touch of mineral bitterness (is that the yeast or malt talking there?). There's a lot of bitterness here, some light citrus and lemon rind type flavors, and a nice fresh cut grassiness.

This is light bodied, and very crisp, and very drinkable. I could drink a lot of this.

Grimm is obviously known for it's hazybois, but since opening the new brewery, they seem to be dialing in a very tasty lager game.
