This one pours a light orange-ish yellow color, clear, and with a big fluffy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like honey malt, spicy hops, and a yeasty sort of minerality.

I want a bit more crispness and bitterness here. The malt character, doughy and slightly honey-sweet is nice though. It's also quite yeasty and minerally, almost too much so.

This is very clean, and pretty crisp, with no real major flaws appearing. It's very drinkable.

This is pretty solid, but needs a bit of work.

Crisp and clear. It's the stereotypical beer colour. Big white head that features some gigantic glassy bubbles as it shrinks its way back towards the center of the glass.

Nose gives a bright preview that's crisper than what saaz offers. Juicy floral that borders on nectar sweet but it's fleeting. Wet grassy notes and an almost BO-esque funk tries to sneak in occasionally. Not me, I showered already. Grains are more wet, and I don't get the prick of yeasty spice/sweet.

Starts off with some classic pils notes building on the foundation of clean malts and a bit of yeast with spicy hops, but the hops take a slightly different turn this time. It's a slightly rounder floral citrus flavour that brings much more of the fruity juiciness than I'm used to in the style. It's an interesting juxtaposition as it wraps back up with the classic spicy hop notes leading into a long earthy bitter finish, though again accentuated with occasional sharp stabs of stark citrus pith.
Clean and easy drinking, leaves a dull bitterness behind and a sticky residue or something along those lines.
Interesting and digging it, though I liked the OWL from these guys a little better.

Appearance is transparent golden straw with a generous white head that drops slowly leaving patchy lacing. Aroma is cracker malt with a hint of lemon and a slight resinous note. Taste follows the nose with a moderate bitter citrus finish.
