Bottle. Pours a dark slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a bit odd, some appley notes, cider, some sweet bread, herbal hops, a touch of pine. Flavor has much the same, a bit less apple which is good, more of the herbal spicy hops. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

Intense. Feels boozy upfront. Slightly bitter on the end. German malts, citrus, grapefruit, the hop, then some sort of sugary substance I suppose possibly caramel..? Pretty wild ride for a pils.

Extra from cpetrone-thanks, Chris! Golden color, foamy, fading to a creamy head. Nose of floral and bitter piney hops. Bready with bread yeast aromas and flavors, maltier than I expected and sweet. Not bad and hit the spot after a hard day of yard work.

Yellow with white head. Nice Pilsner malt flavors balanced against a reasonably potent noble hop bill.

Transfer from BA review on 8-26-13-
Poured from bomber into an pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange-amber color with a small half finger of fizzy white head. The head fades very rapidly, leaving a somewhat persistent level of patchy foam on the surface of the beer and only a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is sweet and hoppy with a nice bready background. The sweet is mostly of a caramel nature but contains some notes of tangerine. The hoppy aromas are mostly of a lemon and grapefruit nature with the malty flavors being a mix of a doughy and grainy smells. Overall a very pleasant aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a doughy taste upfront and a moderately strong caramel sweetness. Upfront there are some lighter notes of hops being predominantly of a light lemongrass taste. Some notes of grapefruit and grass begin getting more pronounced near the middle of the taste with a little bit of graininess and green tea flavor coming as well. At the end a strong dose of hop hits the tongue. The lemongrass and grapefruit grow stronger in intensity with a spicy and herbal flavor joining in as well. The sweet from the beginning mixes well with the big dose of bitterness that comes to the tongue at the end, leaving a satisfying leafy, bitter, and slightly sweet flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the medium to thinner side with a carbonation level that is average. The medium nature of the body is rather nice for maintaining the crisper taste of the beer while all the while still allowing all the nice sweet, malty, hoppy, and spice/grass/herbal flavors to be appreciated.
Overall – This is really one very enjoyable brew. It has a great flavor profile with a large degree of complexity, but yet is still very easy to drink and appreciate. This is one I am definitely going to seek out more often.
