Nice work. Slightly high gravity pilsner with a bit more viscosity than usually. Great brine and hop aroma with just a hint of pineapple in the finish. Right in between common and imperial pilsner.

Bottle; Pour is slightly murky golden with a two finger, fine bubbled creamy head in this glass; there is some light spotting present here, with average retention present. The nose is floral, spicy, caramel, and grain. The flavor profile is initial modest bitter, cream, floral, a modest spicing, more bready malts. The mouthfeel is somewhat thick, and it is sweet, like candied sugar. Its a decent drinker , different of course -

Draft. Poured clear golden color with medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruits with some herbal notes and I guess is what the Kaneko Golden barley. Taste is light sweet leading to a light bitterness in the finish. Interesting

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Clear golden color. Thin white head that retains very well. Leaves little lace. Medium body. Nice smooth lighter carbonation. Little more of a chewy body compared to your typical pils. Finish is more on the dry side. Bready pilsner malts. Nice hop profile - more tropical fruit than grassy. Light bitterness, more sweet. Good imperial pils.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a nice tight white head.
The aroma is doughy with some nice floral hop notes. The maltiness comes in a weird way in the aroma... a touch metallic but then bright and fruity as well...
The flavor is just damned satisfying. Lots of fruitiness but not a lot of sweetness. A perfect level of satisfying hop bitterness, loads of herbal and floral hoppiness. Some nice doughy/yeasty character that works well alongside the very clean fermentation of the beer and the very nice crisp maltiness of the beer. Honestly I’m practically floored by the flavor of this beer, it is essentially everything I find satisfying in the best pale lagers I’ve had.... truly remarkable.
The beer has a nice prickly mouthfeel and a long bitter finish.
Hot damn if this didn’t smell better it’d make my top ten without a doubt.
