3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Lord Hobo, 9/1/15.
Ok, now I’m REALLY getting weirded out. This is beer number two of theirs I’ve had and just like the first, I’m pretty blown away. Then, I look on the site and it has all mediocre to poor reviews! Granted, this one is a pilsner, so it’s gotta deal with all of the "I have no palate and can only taste big flavors" crowd, but still, there are a lot of people whose reviews I generally respect panning it. Whatever the case, it pours a nicely carbonated pale golden. White head atop slowly recedes to a ring.
The hops don’t really come through all that strong in the nose, nor, really, does much of anything. Extremely clean, no yeast impressions, with light herbal notes, some definite grassiness and grainy/bready pale malts. No alcohol or flaws.
Fantastically hoppy in the mouth. Definitely brings to mind visions of some of the best pilsners out there, though perhaps lacking in complexity of hop flavors and has just a touch too much acidity building up on the palate, fatiguing it slightly by the end of a pint. Otherwise, crisp as all get out, perfectly attenuated, dry and yet not thin. Herbal/grassy hop notes are enjoyable as is the light cracker/bread malt flavors. Very, very clean, as well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewery . Pours clear blonde . Smell is malty , rather sharp . Light on the bitter side . Taste is fresh , bitter , grassy . Bit hops , some lager aspects . Not overly hopped as is the trent , but more like a traditionnal lager, which has been brewed rediculously well .
