4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold body with a beautiful one finger frothy white head that faded to a wispy film, light lacing. The nose is spot on for the style, great clean bready malt, perfect floral perfumy hops with very delicate slight hint of yeastiness. The flavor is dry, crisp and perfectly hopped. Wonderfully dry with the perfect level of juicy bitterness that really lingers well past the swallow. It just makes you want to take one sip after another. This really would be a great beer to session on. Light bodied with perfect pinpoint fizzy carbonation. Great beer, wish I would have bought a lot of this.

Light pale malt and subtle floral hops found here. Clear orange color like an IPA, though with an obvious difference in carbonation. Surprise bitter taste that is not expected from the aroma. This brewer brags of being low gravity and therefore highly sessionable, but the lack of palate only serves to emphasize bitterness. Interesting beer, and not as light as one might believe.

Bottle via Lushawn
Pours golden with a nice well retained white head and a good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is clean & bright with some crisp lightly fruity malt character... but generally not sweet smelling at all. The hops are of herbal and citrusy varieties.
The flavor is remarkable, very crisp and clean. The fruity malt is better defined than in the aroma but again the beer is not especially sweet & finishes dry. The hop character is central to the flavor of the beer and is basically fruit forward with a light herbal character. The bitterness is moderate but right on for a beer like this.
Probably one of the better marriages between Bohemian and American pilsener traditions.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours straw yellow with a full. foamy head like a good pilsener should look. Full aroma of pale malts, biscuit, and crisp, clean hops. The body is light and delightful. The taste has a moderate hop bitterness with a dry finish. Very nice for the style.

Had on-tap at The Upper Crust Pizza in Newburyport and had drunk with a slice of steaming pizza. Pours a clear orange with a thin diminishing off-white head.Smells uniquely of Saaz hops, malt extract, nectarine zest yeast and bread. Tastes the same. Gets overpoweringly vegetal by swallow. Also, a little too specifically American in its hop choices which were, on the taste, obviously too bitter.

Draft @ Deep Ellum, MA. Pours a clean amber golden color color with a two finger gaseous head that settles quickly. Aromas are a touch floral, big biscuity malts and a lil cardboard... On the palate it is clean, refreshing and balanced with a nice touch of bitterness on the finish. As stated on the glass a solid American Session Beer.
