I can say this beer looks and tastes exactly like the label. It is a full flavored, tasty beer. However anyone expecting a clean, refreshing pilsner will be disappointed. It’s more like a red ale or IPA. I am rating to flavor rather than style.

For the style this is quite good: Aroma of sweet hops, light spice bit of earth and grass. Pours a totally clear yellow with a nice super white head that last a few minutes. Taste is very well balanced between sweet light malts and hops bitterness. palate is refreshing and a bit dry. overall a very nice refreshing expertly made pilsner from firestone walker. but a pilsner is still a pilsner.

Tap pale yellow pour with large white head. Aroma is fresh hops with grass, hay, and some toasted bisquit. Flavor is big with toasted bisquit, grassy hops and a smooth mild bitterness. The flavors are big in this beer and good; I could drink many more.

Bottle. Aroma of grass, toasted grains, hint of bubblegum, and a little citrus. Pours clear, pale straw color with white head Grain, toast in taste, along with that "lager" flavor I don't know the words for. Grassy, citrus bitterness in the finish. Light body, lasting bitter finish, lively carbonation. Overall: interesting. Some lemongrass, peppery spice in there? A little too "flavorful" for my taste when I'm looking for a pilsener, but light, crisp and alright.

A deep piss yellow in color with a large very white head. Damp light malts scented. There is a light crisp hop balance by soft malt that slowly fade down your throat.

A very very good interpretation of the style. I think this is one of the closest American brewed but European tasting beers I've had. Nice and spices and just darn good
Leave your pretensions at the door.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at the Local Peasant, clear straw yellow pour with lacing white head, aroma brought notes of cracker, vanilla, and slight honey, some dusty notes into the pretty spicy and grassy hop portion, slight grainy notes, very slight lemongrass as well. Taste was a nice mix of lemon, grass, some spice, into grain, biscuit, cracker notes, finishing clean, dry. Pretty nice, easy to drink for sure.

A: Beautiful golden color with carbonation flowing freely through the body. Residual head from a white top.
N: Bready and slightly hoppy. Grass, straw, and some pine. Slightly sharp as a good pilsner ought to be, IMO. Some grapefruit and lemon rind.
T: Mostly bitter with some biscuity malt elements. Has a minor tang.
M: Light and carbonated. Perfect for sipping and then gulping.
O: Polished off a 6 pack off this right damn quick. There are some tremendous pilsners being brewed in the USA at this point and this is another of them. Drink fresh and soon.
