Next up, a German Pilsener from Sixpoint Brewery in Brooklyn. THE Crisp comes packaged in pounder cans which I like. On the back a quote from a poem, as usual. For this beer, Ralph Waldo Emerson had this to say... “There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.” Waldo, LOL! 5.4% alcohol. 42 IBU. 5.9 SRM.
Clean aroma. Light lemon and grain with some spicy hops. Mmm. Nice flavors. Lightly sweet malty beginning with some crackers on top. Lemony and spicy hop bitterness comes next, a nice little zing with it. Very clean and smooth and fresh. Could use a little more carbonation, but this is an easy drinker. Very nicely done. Highly recommended!
