5.5%ABV. Pilsner. Citra hop just hops right out at you. Over ripe pineapples. Color is 12-14 SRM. Slightly hazy. Pronounced carbonation. Well roasted malts. Pine giving way very smoothly to bitter hops. Pronounced, but not aggressive. Has the clean palate of a Pilsner with the bitter finish of one wearing a daffodil in its lapel for a touch of floral flamboyance. Favorites list!

Aus der Dose, fruchtig in der Nase, etwas runder Körper für ein Pils, aber angenehme bittere und hopfenatoma

minutemat (2266) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours amber with a slight haze. A citrussy pilsner with a touch of grassiness. One of the better pilsners from the hip young craft brewers.

330ml can as faceless spreadsheet ninja. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a few white bubbles. Aroma is citrus fruits, a little floral and straw. Nice hoppy taste. Crisp and refreshing.

evergreen0199 (2297) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
On tap at Weird Beard brewery, Hanwell, London. Label indicates ’Weird Beard Faceless Spreadsheet Ninja’ but equates to this one. A golden/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, malty, citrus aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, malty, citrus, bready. Decent and quite moreish.

TBone (13718) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Can 330ml (AbM, BB 09/2015 as "Weird Beard Faceless Spreadsheet Ninja")
Golden-amber color, small steady creamy white head, some lace. Grassy and a bit grainy aroma. Light to medium bodied. Fruity and grassy pils with citrus. Unfortunately some grainy notes which I don’t like so much.

This works very well I think. I’m a huge fan of Citra hops but generally find them in pale ales. In the pilsener the grassy hops bitterness is still there is a smooth medium body but there is a citrusy aftertaste.
