Can. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a note of Smarties candy, hints of lemon zest, DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
Nice aroma that has a bit of candy-ish quality to it but is otherwise nice and pretty clean too. Flavor balance is pretty good, but the sugars last longer into the finish than expected or desired (even thought the bitterness level is good). Watery and fizzy in the mouth, which is probably the weakest point, but it’s a pretty good rendition all things considered. Drake (14045) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Open bar at my sister’s wedding! Congrats Sara! Pale orange. Biscuity pale malt, hoppy finish. Well balanced. Solid beer. Onslow (1512) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2017
Pour from a 12oz can. Classic pils look - clear golden brew with white head. Nice aroma of bready malt and crisp hops. Taste is bready malt up front with a crisp, grassy and somewhat citric hops finish. A really fine pilsener. ShinyChariot (5) - - JUL 20, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Favorite beer. It's amazing and has a nice sweet taste to it. It's not too strong and I really can't find anything other than it's the closest thing I have found to a perfect beer. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2017
12 ounce can from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge in an Ayinger weizen glass. Pale, bubbly clear gold, fair-to-middlin’ head dissipates more rapidly than it could...lightly sweet and faintly floral (clover-honey?) notes at first are quickly subsumed into a strong fresh grainy-bready character....in the body again there is a significant initial sweetness that is rapidly overcome by a dryer, crisp bitterness though the malt presence never weakens much...overall it’s just a tad too thick for the style for me and could be a touch drier yet, but this is on the whole a decent example and another reason why Revolution is becoming one of my go-to breweries.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a full white head. Spicy grassy aroma with a bit of pine as well. Taste is sweet pale malt, freshly mown grass and a touch of honey. Medium hop bitterness. Well balanced refreshing pils. TAR (2776) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Burnished yellow. Strong collar of foam holds throughout the glass. Expressively hoppy aroma of lemon drops, grass, and minerals. Suggestive white sage, gooseberry, black pepper, cracker and lemongrass. Stiff, plentiful carbonation. A mineralic firmness engages the palate in the brazenly hoppy and decidedly crisp commencement. Notably vibrant and unrestrained hops impart a lemon drop characteristic atop lesser notes of grass and zippy pepper. Hops are borderline “green” at times and trend towards grassy, although not to the point of becoming limp thanks to the bracing minerals. Tongue-smacking lemon oil arises amid the ever-evolving hoppy luster and displaces much of the grassiness, as does a drying sage-like note. Vivid pils malt, while ghostlike and lean, imparts sufficient toasty-crackery crackle to underscore the fuller baguette qualities which emerge at closer to room temp. Exceptionally dry and well-attenuated, yet with just enough baguette slathered with invigoratingly zesty hop oils for body augmentation. Simple but focused and well-attenuated finish reveals zippy pepper with coarse and stinging minty bitterness lingering. Well, having been a bit underwhelmed after trying this fresh from tap at the brewpub, where I found it to be stark and one-dimensionally hoppy and brash, and from one-week-old cans, I decided to see what a month or so would do to help tame the greenness of the hops. It’s improved things significantly, actually. It still leans more toward the new world than I prefer, but thankfully the only Americanized aspect is that it’s been dry-hopped. Very happy that these are 100% German nobles, though, rather than something hokey and gimmicky. For those who enjoy Firestone Walker Pivo Pils or Keesman Pils, this is nearly a carbon copy, particularly of the former. Lean, dry and flashily hopped. Well done.

Spot on german style pilsner. Smooth with nice head that fades. This is what a german pilz is. Spot on representation. Sweet with the unique german hop forward flavors. Aroma light pilz Europe flashback. NICE! ryecatcher (1458) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Can. Clear, pale golden pour. Smallish white head with so-so retention. Nose is grain, grass, wildflowers, Meyer lemon. Mouth is medium bodied, grain, grass, balancing hoppy bitterness, some floral notes. A tad watery . Not bad. Johnstledger8 (1255) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 11, 2016
Draught. Pours a clear golden yellow with a fading off white bubbly head. Aroma is of citrus, grassy, bread, biscuit, floral. Taste is of biscuit, bread, floral, perfumey, less hoppy than the aroma. Watery mouthfeel, medium carbonation.
