3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Full Sail... Poured pale, straw/yellow with a thick, retaining, bright white head. Nose had a great pilsener hopped character. Nice bitterness, freshly hopped. Quite green actually. Earthy, grassy, citrus hop spices with a biscuit malt balance and super clean finish that cut the bitterness. One of the best Fresh Hop beers I have had this 2012 season.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Full Sail Pilsener Room in Portland, OR. Pours a clear pale golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grassy and lemony hops with a crisp, lightly bready pils malt. Flavor is similar. Somewhat bready pils malts with a grassy, lemony hopping. Finishes dry with a light spiciness to the hops and a medium-light bitterness. Clean pils malts with a light bready sweetness in a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent pilsner. Fresh hop flavor and a crisp, clean, lightly sweetened and bready malt backing. Easy drinking and enjoyable.
