Shrink-wrapped 750mL swing-top growler generously shared by yourefragile. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stemmed tulip. Pours a nice light straw-yellow color with a fluffy white head and good retention. Really nice lacing on the sides of the glass as it goes down. The nose carries a good dose of grain and barley with some light floral and perfume notes. Really well-integrated. Light but fairly complex. Really impressive and on par with the best American pilsners I’ve had, which mainly consist of those coming very fresh from Victory on tap. Flavor starts with a nice grain character. Very smooth and soft. Comes in underneath floral-driven hops. Light earthiness and just a touch of spice. Light body and incredibly crisp. Ridiculously easy to drink. I could have easily taken down the growler and more by myself.

dandeman (799) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2016
Céréales et pain au nez. Houblons herbacés. Herbes des champs, fines herbes, persil. De couleur dorée, très claire, limpide. Bonne mousse crémeuse qui colle sur le verre. Accents de pain à l’entrée de bouche. Croustillante et sèche en bouche avec une finale herbacée très prenante avec des tons de persil et de fines herbes qui laissent une longue amertume sur la langue. Équilibre parfait. Une superbe pilsner. Sur la coche. Les tons de céréales sont en équilibre parfait avec le houblonnage.

humlelala (1288) - DENMARK - JUN 2, 2016
(on tap @ Mikkeller) Poured at fridge temperature into a Mikkeller footed tulip reveals a clear golden body with one finger white head that fades somewhat leaving lace. Aroma is malt-forward with predominant notes of grain and cereal and with the noble hops hard to detect to my crude olfactory organ. In the mouth the hops become more present playing a counter-balancing, bittering role to the malt. The flavour is quite assertive and relatively well-balanced making it a rare bird for the style. At first I mistook the assertiveness for farmhouse but recalibration of the palate with water enabled me to recognise the cereals and noble hop bitterness for what it was. Carbonation is medium, body is light to medium and the finish is lingering and relatively crisp. A good expression of the style but it’s not really my kind of style

Taste is pretty dry with a hint of leather, light bitter hoppy and a hint of bready sweetness. Average carbonation and a light, crisp body.
