Pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Head is a bout a finger and a half and lacing is nice and slow. Aroma is of a fine pilsner. Taste has a nice amount of hops balanced with a touch of lemon and citrus. Bitterness balances well and presents a very nice, top of the line pilsner....

Poured a slightly cloudy deep gold. The foamy white head has good retention and lasts well into the beer. A decent amount of lacing comes with it. Mild biscuit aroma and the taste adds just a hint of grassy hops.
