Experimental Hops Pilsner

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"A new take on the Pilsner style. We got access to two new hops that could change the way we think about adding hop flavor to pilsners. These hops, Nug-033 and Steiner 04190, reflect some of herbal and spicy character of their European predecessors, but with a new twist. Notes of lemongrass and citrus are balanced by a slight honey flavor and a smooth, chamomile-like hop aroma."

I like a good pilsner ... and this is an interesting take on the classic.
A bit sweet but retains just a little bitterness.
Very Drinkable, very good.
