2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Considering that I don’t like citra hops this wasn’t too bad. +++ Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a bright yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tart, citric, perfumey and piney. The flavor was tart with cactus, citrus pine, light perfume and moderate sweetness to balance it all. Long hoppy finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Enjoyed this one at the Brew Crew Bash in Ann Arbor on May 21. This one was poured from a 32 oz crowler. The pour is a darker bright yellow color with a decent fluffy white head that falls down to a film leaving quite the lace behind. I am not too big on pilsners, but this one is pretty damn good. There is a bright citrus right up front. It’s heavy and potent. After that, it does fall off quite a bit, like you’d expect from a pilsner. There is a lot of straw and a metallic lager malt. It falls to a little disappointing bit, but the beginning is amazing for a pilsner. The flavors are much of the same. It’s much more pilsnerish. There is a bit of straw and a crisp light malt to go with a continually light, but present, citrus juiciness. The mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a bright carbonation that is almost a little too overdone. The aftertaste is sweet metallic malt and a little hoppiness. Pretty damn good pilsner, for sure!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Al’s / Pizza Boy in Enola.
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a light note of lime.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Doesn’t look or smell like much, and the flavor balance is definitely on the sweet side (more like a blonde ale than a pils), but it’s clean and mindlessly drinkable.

Fantastic. Opens like a pale ale bursting with citrus but finishes the sazz hop dryness.
