If God himself were to drink a beer, it would be this one. It has the light, drinkable texture, all of the alcohol content, and no nasty aftertaste. I can drink this while i eat dinner, or I can come in after mowing my grass and this beer is absolutely amazing. I have had it semi warm and ice cold. Of course Ice cold is the best. The one thing that I truly admire about this beers flavor is that is goes great with any food you make. I truly love it best with a big plate of fried Cod, Fried chips and hush puppies!

Twelve ounce bottle into bicentennial Mason jar.

A: Beautiful golden color with three finger white head that has good lace on tip and some round spot left here and there.

S: Nice fresh grains and floral hops. Sweet clover honeycomb. The smell of a fresh bale of hay in the barn when you break it open.

T: Munich malt, Hallertauer, und Tettnang hops. Das ist gut beir. The grassy flower nectar hops complement the sweet malt perfectly. Nice crisp dry finish. German Pilsners und Kolsch beirs are hitting my tastebuds much more square as I learn more and more about beir. This is an incredible working in the hot sun summer beir. Try a few on they will fit you nicely.

M: Crisp light-medium body an A+ for this style.

D: When I shock wheat this summer I will bring several cases of this and will drink till its gone.

pours a not-quite transparent golden, tiny bubbles moving through the middle a bit, with an almost-white thick smooth head, could last a bit longer but nice lacing.

smell is relatively clean but nice sweet malt in there with a touch of hop, notable lack of DMS.

taste is all clean pilsner - nice sweet malt balanced with a nice dose of hops. once again, a very notable lack of DMS.. it's almost confusing. i keep going back and looking for it, but it's just not there.

mouthfeel is beautiful - a little less carbonated than a lot of pilsners, but plenty to leave a nice refreshing spark.

drinkability is perhaps the highest i've ever drank.. tastes great, goes down smooth, just a touch of hop on the clean finish just asks for another taste.
