4.06/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a one finger egg white head; dots of lace

Smell: Malted grain and grassy tones

Taste: Pilsner malt flavors forward with a moderately grassy aspect; some residual sweetness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with crisp carbonation

Overall: I prefer a stronger grassy hop bite but this is a refreshing beach beer

Can (early July release)

Pours gold with a bit of haze and a thick, fluffy white head. Aromas of spicy, grassy hops and a little dough and honey. Continued spicy, herbal hop flavor with more of a cracker-like maltiness. Light and crisp, medium carbonation, very drinkable. I like it!

Classic Pilsner but a little bit smoother and fuller-bodied like hint of a kolsch style. Going down perfect in August, I’m already wishing I had more and there’s 3 left

A: Pours a clear pale straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy pillowy bright white head that slowly reduces to a handful of small patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of doughy + biscuit + bready + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness and light to moderate aromas of grassy + spicy hops. Very light aromas of lager yeast.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of doughy + biscuit + bready + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of lager yeast. Finally there are light to moderate flavors of grassy + spicy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers for a moderate amount of time before fading and leaving a relatively clean finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a relatively clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a crisp + refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable with classic hop flavors + aromas over a traditional American Pilsner base. Could easily have a couple of these - perfect for these hot summer afternoons.
