Tap at Mikkeller Bar, San Francisco. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small fading white head. Nose has herbal notes, citrus tones and floral hops. Bit of dough in there too. Taste is super crisp - citrus/floral tones combing with the dough malts. Super easy drinking.

Advent 23. Super foam on golden yellow. Bit of a sulphury scent and taste. Flavour is salty, buttery and grain. Body is thin. Maybe it needs a tap.

Draft at Sybarite Pig in Boca. Tulip. Golden pour with ample fluffy head. Awesome hack frost lacing. Aroma of cereal, grass, grain and fresh hops. Taste us cereal, grains, grass, and a hop profile. Awesome flavor and balance. Refreshing and light but with flavor. Light body, medium carb. Finish clean and crisp.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A very hoppy-grassy pils with a nice “rural” character. Lovely thirst beer.
How: Tap at Blackback pub, Waterbury VT..
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a medium white with good retention.
In long: Nose offers really nice grassy hops, sundried hay and an overall countryside field sensation. In mouth the body is surprisingly full and with a slightly fluffy texture and a lively non-aggressive carbonation, a pleasant mouthfeel. Taste is spot-on. Expressive fresh bready pale cereals and a whole lot of dry grassy hops leading to a rather dry finish with a bitterness of medium intensity. Might be because of the tap conditioning but I thought this was a surprisingly nice offering coming from a brewery that is not exactly known for their thirst blonde lagers. Another underrated thirst pilsner, and I may pretend that I don’t care that ratebeer tickers never give good ratings to session lagers but the truth is deep down inside I really really really don’t care.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Star Grocery. It pours a rather cloudy golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is surprisingly balanced with crackery malt and light tea leaf, spicy hops. The flavor is very strongly bittered with intense lemon peel and herbal hop bitterness coupled with a touch of background bready malt. More citrus peel and herbals near the finish. A bit overwhelming with the intense hop bitterness, but very flavorful for the style. It kind of suffers from a lack of finesse.

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, SF.
Bold, hoppy pilsner. Golden yellow, proper white head. Nice bitter nose, some malts, but more hops. Enough restraint, solid but sessionable.
