On tap at the brewery – Los Angeles Arts District
Served in a taster glass - 01/11/14

A: Golden blonde body with some visible chill haze and a healthy head of eggshell froth on top. Remarkable retention efforts here with loads of sticky ribbons and dots adhering to my glass.

S: Grainy bread like aromas from some undeniable Pilsner malt mixed with a bit of floral spice hops. Not terribly sweet on the nose with a pretty dry and clean scent overall.

T: Flavors follow suit with a steady malt base of grainy pilsner with some floral and herbal spice hops. Mild Lager yeast character is noted and there is a moderate amount of hoppy bitterness to the beer. The finish is fairly dry with no alcohol presence. Pretty refreshing and well crafted Pils.

M: Medium body hanging on the lower side with a lively carbonation and nice crisp drying finish. Slight dry bitterness to it but rather clean in the end.

D: This is a nice refreshing Pils and surprisingly good. With those very familiar characters of grainy bread, peppery spice hops, and Lager yeast.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of floral hops. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hops, and a hint of adjunct (maybe). Overall, simple, weak flavors, and possible adjunct equate to an average pilsner, at best.

On tap at Angel City Brewery in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, grass, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting herbal hop presence that only comes through in the taste.
