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.

Ok this is a pretty decent pilsener but still a pilsener. To get a 98% overall people... You can have a personality beyond hyped breweries you know. Anyway, good noble hops here and very well balanced for style. Good malt and crisp finish. Golden pour with ok head and good lacing. Tap at Ginger Man.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2016 On tap at brewery. Pours straw colored with a foamy white head. Strong floral hop aroma with some grass and pilsner malt. Taste is grassy with hops, malt, bread, and grain. Relatively bitter finish. Medium body. Light carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel.

brokensail (16053) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 5, 2016
On tap @ Hill Farmstead. A clear golden beer with white foam. It’s got an intensely hoppy aroma. Very, very herbal. Lots of floral notes, some subtle citrus, and grass. Actually has a lot more lemon the more I sniff and sip of it. Really nice bready malts, biscuit sweetness, and maybe a touch of dough. Pretty minimal esters. Solid bitterness to the finish without being overdone. Good beer.

neongolden (1226) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
(On tap @ Warpigs HF Day, Copenhagen, May 12 2016) Hazy yellow-gold with a loose white head that fades with a little lace. Aroma of pilsner malt cereals, hay, grass, light florals, touch bready and slightly sweet. Flavour is well-balanced, with a sweet touch to the crackery malt, hay and cut grass, floral, fairly lightly bitter but rather so for style, rather crisp as well. Light to medium body, slightly oily, smooth low carbonation. Pilsner isn’t really my style but this is a lovely example, flavours are relatively assertive for the style but the balance is very good.

Draft at anchorage brewing, pale yellow beer, big white head. Aroma is malt, honey, clover. Taste is malt, honey, clover, hint of hops, honey. Not as sweet as it sounds, just very floral, light and clean. Omg.

TaktikMTL (7034) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Cruchon de 2 l partagée lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de céréales avec une légère pointe citronnée. Apparence: La couleur est blonde légèrement voilée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales avec une pointe de citron et de fruité. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est plein avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #7031)

dandeman (826) - 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.
