(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear lemon yellow body with a slow spars matrix of tiny bubbles and a foamy white head.

S- The clean aroma has notes of green leaves and an aroma I can only describe as old lady. Perhaps it is a blend of field corn, cream and dried flower, it is not really offensive just odd.

T- The dry pils malt blends with some field corn flavor and a green hops bite in the finish. The hops have a green woody Noble hop before the slightly dry finish but there are some dry green fruit punch hints to the aftertaste.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp fizz in the finish.

O- The dry crisp beer is full of hop flavor and depth with a good malt support. Easy to drink and very thirst quenching.

A German Pilsner made by New Belgium in the US. Is this a geography lesson? Pours a golden light yellow color that is very crisp and clear in appearance. The head retention pours light and quickly rings around the edge of the glass. But there was good lacing.

The smell sudsy and a noticeable pilsner malt. More of a European smell then say American. There is a earthy floral aroma as well. Also there is a tail end of pine that is present.

The taste is malty with a noticeable German taste to it. A sudsy flavor more then say skunky. Sweet at the top but quickly replaced by a bit of bittering hops that leaves a zip flavor. Kind of spicy in a way. Similar to having too much white pepper. At the end there is a grassy presence as well.

The body is light. The bit is just a look to big and not as crisp as it should be. Also the sudsy taste gives a texture of chalkiness. I’ve had far worse but its noticeable here as well.
