COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Foam is a German-style Pilsner, light bodied and easy drinking, yet loaded with flavor. Brewed with a mix of European and American malts, balanced by a spicy, and herbal hop kick. Brewed specifically for Phish festivals, Foam is a crisp and refreshing traditional pale gold lager beer. In the words of Phish— “I’m looking through, And it all would be, So crystal clear, If it wasn’t for the foam.” Great music, great beer, and good times.

On tap at Cole’s. Served initially too cold, its true balance and flavour reveals itself as it warms to room temperature. Light yellow,and lacey, but yet spot on and so drinkable. Very good dinkability. Very good malting that adds to the mild but significant bitterness.

32oz Growler from Beverage World. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours almost clear yellow with a one finger white head that recedes to a light cap and doesn’t leave much lacing behind.

Aroma is grassy, noble hops, a hint floral, some bready/cracker malt. Good strength.

Flavor is grassy, noble hops, decent bit of light malt sweetness, decent bit of bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is light bodied, a touch sticky, good carbonation.

Very nice Pilsner, Crisp, super easy drinking. Hoppy, but still balanced.

On tap @ Daily Pint. Golden pour with a white head. Initial smell is kind of bland, but from there things get pretty bread forward. Toasted malt, floral hops, yeast, and some citrus peel. The flavor has a nice sweetness to it. Plenty of bread and toast. Some citrus, floral hops, and a touch of yeast.

On tap at Fox Bros. A pils with a little more character and flavor, mostly from a more agressive hop profile. Nice light and toasty grain flavors working to balance things out a bit. Peppery spice on the finish.

Sampled at the mothership on 9/16/2014. This Pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is cereal and sweet, with a touch of grain and grass. A medium to light bodied pilsner. The malts are cereal and sweet. The hops are earthy and slightly spicy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. A very nice and easy drinkable pilsner. Great summer beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

The only place I’ve ever enjoyed this beer was at the Indio Polo Club for Festival 8. Pale Ale is one of my favorites anyway so when I heard Sierra was brewing Foam specially for the festival, it was on. It was pretty hot out there and needless to say, this stuff was delicious. It kinda reminded me of a lighter Pale Ale but there was so many other "Substances" in my system I don’t think I’m in a position to give any type of helpful reveiw. Magic, thats what it tasted like, magic.
