Notes: Within this aluminum sheathing rests a bright, spicy, modern pilsner so transporting, screams become carefully lagered whispers, Legos on the floor in the night become clouds of pillowy foam, and a forgotten diaper pail softly wafts lemon grove kisses...

Can from Ale Arsenal in San Carlos.

Side by side with Reality Czeck, all this does is exemplify how good RC is. While fermentation is clean and soft, as you'd expect, the really aggressive hop profile, dank, herbaceous and super weed heavy and comparatively unbalanced. Dank, mildly bitter with loads of weed on a clean, soft palate. Very floral and herbaceous. Clean. Soft, snappy and drying with a dank finish. Solid stuff.

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewery pint glass

A: Pours golden straw yellow with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer and leaves plenty of lacing.

S: Floral, grassy, herbal, nice hit of citrus zest, crackery biscuity malt, and a touch of yeast.

T: Bright, floral, lemon zest, spicy pine, grassy herbal notes, crackery slightly biscuity malt, faint touch of yeast, with a fairly dry finish.

M: Light to medium body, moderately lively carbonation.

O: Coming from a brewery that makes my all time favorite Pils makes scoring this a bit tricky. When compared to Reality Czeck, it's not quite as complex and nuanced, but stepping back and just judging it as what is in the glass, it's a damn fine Pils all its own.
