We've dialed in this craft Pilsner with a crisp bitterness that balances gentle hop aromatics of citrus rind and fresh cut flowers.

801 is a small-batch beer from Uinta Brewing, a pilsner that seems to have an American twist to it. It is being reviewed as a 5D German Pilsner.

This beer shows as a hazy straw color with a persistent frothy white head. On the nose, it has a fresh and clean quality, tending towards lightly herbal and spicy. Medium malt, soft pilsner quality, though it comes in late after the brighter hop notes.

In tasting, the beer is quite hop forward with a light fruity and almost citrusy quality on top of the herbal notes. Overall, the malt is pretty light and the bitterness is appropriate and grows as you drink the beer. The malt is a bit low overall and the carbonation is too low for the style, lacking the expected crispness.  It is fairly easy-drinking and refreshing, but it could just use more texture and malt.
