12 oz. Bottle

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a nice small thick/creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is slightly hoppy, with some malt notes, nice little citrus going on. The taste is hoppy, kinda malty, kinda citrusy. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

A - Clear bright gold, slightly hazy, poured into a flared pilsner glass with a Bristol Brewing logo. A finger's
worth of capped white foam diminishing a little, leaving ribbons and streaks of fine lacing.

S - Slightly lemon scented. Faint background sweetness of oranges. Definitely not
skunky.

T - Much better than lasts year's version from 2014. Lemon grass bitterness followed by a slight malt
sweetness makes for a well-balanced pilsner taste.

M - Light to medium body, more towards medium. Moderate carbonation. Somewhat dry, but goes down
really smooth.

O - As stated, better than last year's for sure. Much more balanced and quite satisfying. A really solid 2015
pilsner brewed locally in Colorado.
