Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a 1" off white head that falls slowly with some mild lacing. Color is a cloudy golden with abundant streaming carbonation.

Aroma: pleasant yeasty bread dough combined with some tart hop spice.

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied and slick with a quick, dry finish.

Flavor: saltine cracker, biscuit, some fruity sweetness, spruce and grassy hops.

Overall: a delicious beer, quite appropriate to the style.

A pale yellow that's pretty clear but for a light haze, this Pils is still pretty bright. It grows a foamy white head to one finger, where it keeps up pretty well and leaves pretty good patching in its wake.
Grassy with a lemony twang in the nose, it's also a touch damp and earthy with underlying grains under somewhat dry malt notes. It's also got an off-putting vegetal note, though, and something a little like cheese that might work in a certain IPA but not a lighter style.
It improves quite a bit in the flavor, though it's a bit too sweet with just a flash of the vegetal note still coming through. Otherwise it has a modicum of grassy hops to counter the earth. It seems more like a hybridized Euro lager of some kind, but it's not bad.
The body's a little too big for a pils, but its balance of crispness and smoothness works fairly well despite that it isn't especially clean.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Appears a dark golden orange color, with a solid 3 fingers of tan, foamy head. The head has great retention, and leaves a touch of lacing.

The nose is very sweet and malty, with a touch of yeastiness. Not a ton of punch to the aroma. The taste follows suit with the malts, lack of hops, and some yeast. This is pretty laid-back and seems a little lack-luster.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, a touch heavy for a pilsner. The carbonation is on point, and the finish is nice. Overall, this is a below-average pilsner that is lacking in impressive points. Refreshing, but doesn't remind me of a pilsner at all.
