A good beer from north coast. A little too bitter for my taste but they have a great wheat beer I prefer over this brew.

Lite gold pour (16oz draft) with white head. Baked bread with hint of floral notes; bready with a little floral finish. Lite, crisp mouthfeel. Overall, a nice lite way to start the day.

this is one of the better widely available pilseners made in the united states i think. its super refreshing and bright, but its got a little body too it, nothing watery about it at all, and has a ton of flavor, nothing adjunct about it, with just a little sweetness in the middle before the more bready or crackery malts come in, fresh and sturdy for the style. hops are light, enough bitter to balance a higher sweetness, but not real intense at all. some grassy notes, really fresh this is fantastic. a great beer with greasy food like pizza and wings, not filling at all, and more than just a palate cleanser. i havent been the hugest fan of north coast over the years, never really thought they stood out much, but this one is awesome, and im not usually too excited about pilsener. delicious, different, worth buying for sure. this may become a go to for me. sessionable forever at this abv too.
