A style-bending beer that can only be classified as a “pale-sner,” meaning the brew integrates pungent and tangy American Citra hops as typical of pale ales, while exhibiting the lean malt structure of a pilsner. Bill Covaleski states “In this brew, we really did bring our common expertise and wild ambitions to a rational and delicious conclusion.”

Draft at Dutch’s (October 2012, notes). Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma has Pilsner malts, some citrus, grass, herbal notes, some toasted notes and dank notes. The flavor has toasted grains, wet grass, pilsner malts, herbal with some citrus character. I didn’t care for how the different pieces came together.

Draft at fat heads. Golden pour. Big citra hop presence in aroma and flavor. Big bitterness in flavor. Very good hoppy pilsner

Tap at FH, really tasty, huge citra nose and then crispy malt finish. really interesting fusion here, i would love this as a sessionable beer, when a session IPA isnt available this would be an awesome beer. really good.

On draught at Vintage Estate. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium fizzy white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of herbal hops and malt. Light-bodied and crisp with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and bready malt. A bit of spice throughout. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering herbal hops aftertaste. Good hoppy Pils all around.

Tmoney99 (14952) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and grass aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

ttutony (941) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Transparent golden color in the glass. Potent citrus, grass, and spicy hop aroma. Leads in with cereal grain notes followed by a potent hop rush. A great beer for fans of hoppy styles like IPAs who also appreciate a good pilsner. Well done.

This poured a slightly hazy darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was mainly citra hops, very tropical, with light cracker and grain notes. Flavor was just what I was hoping, bright hop flavor at the front, with a long cracker and dough finish. Couldn’t imagine a citra hopped pilsner being better than this.

Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good; a transparent yellow gold with off-white head and good carbonation. Smells and tastes good too; Citra hops with a little doughiness, and a nice pilsner snap that’s pleasant on the palate. Really good beer!

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2012 Sampled on draft at Fat Heads this beer poured a bright pale yellow color with a small white soapy head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was strong crisp fruity and floral hops. The flavor was bitter and dryish with a strong presence of fruity and floral hops with a touch of honey. Very long fruity and floral hop finish. Medium body. Tasty.
