Serving: 16oz can
Served: 14 March 2015

Appearance: Nice and bright golden color with a soft head. Looks like your standard pils, but nice depth to the color.

Smell: Grassy hops with a touch of citrusy lemongrass. Standard lager breadiness.

Taste: Holy crap, one of the best US made German Pilseners hand down. Really nice bready, biscuity lager notes which are complimented by an assertive herbal/citrus hoppiness. A bit hoppier than continental versions, but very well done. Finishes semi-dry. Extremely impressed.

Mouthfeel: Light with high carbonation makes this one easy to put back. Does not feel thin, even as it warms and looses some carbonation.

Overall: One of the best US-produced German pilseners available. If you're a lager head, you've got to try this one.

had three so right about now this may be a little biased. finger of head with yellow body. good carbonation. dry bitter smell. taste is hoppy and dry at first but it doesn't linger. crisp as advertised. very good beer just wasn't expecting it to be so bitter but I should've noticed the 44 IBU on the label which is fine but just not expected. more of an IPA to me than a pilsner but lighter. good beer but I like other pilsners more
