ClarkVV (5787) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Draught at Coastal Kitchen, 11/8/15.
Light, pale blonde beer with high clarity and a small white head with moderate to moderately low retention.
More malt-driven than hop driven, which is fine, though it seems a bit odd given the commercial deScription, which makes it seem like it is going to be very hoppy in the nose. Still, there is certainly some pleasant floral character, as well as a bit of honey, moderate cereal grains and light fruitiness. No alcohol or flaws.
Wet, rather light-bodied liquid seems more pale lager-like, though thereís a bit more to the malt bill, with a touch more honey and light bread notes. A touch of corn and/or vanilla, but itís fleeting and not altogether unpleasant. Soft, grassy hops with just a light bit of fruitiness and a pinch of bitterness from the Zeus. Pleasant, rather mindless quaffer. Moderate carbonation and good attenuation.

reebtogi (5682) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
Sampled during VCBW 2013 at the River Rock Casino Resort pouring a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is fresh citrus and pine hops with some cereal grains. Taste is a modest pine and citrus hop bitterness balanced nicely with a grainy malt sweetness. Light body with mild carbonation. A well done pilsener that is definitely worth checking out.

Pours nice gold. Has nice, clean flavor, clean bitterness, but lacks the carbonation I want in a pilsner.
