3fourths (9406) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Faintly hazed effervescent gold. Snappy noble hops give it a bright spice and lemon pith oiliness. Warm baked baguette pilsner malt is rich and hearty and intoxicating. Wonderfully balanced, luscious mouth presence, velvet softness. Medium body, prickly, grassy and pithy. Medium-low sweetness with quenching acid. Herbal and peppery with endless depth... it’s very obviously a Pilsner Urquell clone, easily one of the best I’ve had. Floral, rustic, expressive, superbly clean. Lovely in every way, really. Took me by surprise and I stayed around for three(!) pints of it. Very comforting beer with lemon-y Spalt accents on a strong Saaz pepper / spice / must core. Damn fine Pilsner.
