The Crisp is a German-style Pilsener brewed by Sixpoint Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a pilsener glass from a can.
The Pils pours a crystal-clear pale gold and is topped by a thick stack of rocky white foam. The head persists briefly and leaves behind a generous amount of sticky lace along the sides of the glass. Fine bubbles continuously stream upward.
The aroma is faint but it does have a pleasant scent of peppery hops.
The palate begins with a simple cracker malt base that leads to a nice bite of peppery hops with a touch of lemon citrus. The bitterness is balanced by a nice malty backbone of white bread that’s been slightly sweetened with honey.
Its feel has a smooth draw that turns slightly grainy on the backend. Its light body and medium-high carbonation are perfect for the style.
Sure, its head retention could be better and its aroma is missing its malt character, but otherwise, The Crisp is a lovely Pilsener. The feel is spot on and its palate is absolutely delightful. Its ABV runs a little high for the style but this is still a light, easy drinking brew that could be sessionable.
