A-Pours a clean, yellow color with a thick, fluffy, creamy head, head sticks around for the entirety of the pint.

S-Biscuity and cracker Pils malt. Grains and lager yeast. Light, grassy, Noble hop aromatics as well.

T-The Pilsner malt and the yeast combine to make a pretty genuine Euro Pils flavor. The hops are grassy and floral and softly spicy.

M-Light bodied, drinkable and built for Summer. Lively carbonation. Flavors don't linger. Refreshing.

O-A good take on the style. It succeeds at being genuine and also becomes forgettable in the process.

Pours a decent creamy fluffy 1+ finger head that fades at a med to slower pace, lots of thick soapy lacing, mostly clear watery straw colored.

Nose big time pilsner malts, straw, big straw, grassy, toasty, etc, with a nice noble grassy hop bite. Pretty nice actually.

Taste starts similarly, lightly sweet toasty grainy pilsner malt, lots of straw and grainy pilsner malts, touch bready doughy like, grassy, etc. Then nice noble hop grassy hop flavor, touch spicy, fair to a bit lighter bitterness, nice soft lager notes. Finish is dry and a bit crisp, long lingering grassy noble hops that turn a bit spicy, touch more straw malts.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, lots of nice carbonation.

Overall very nice actually, one of their best made beers yet, very well done to the style, nice noble hop bitterness and grassy flavors, nice straw toasty pilsner malts, no real flaws, even a little lager crispness and softness, just lacking the decoction complexity to really go over. Otherwise this is like a perfect summer lager made in America.

Hard pour into an American pint glass yields a straw-gold colored brew with a slightly hazy clarity and a rocky, 1.5 inch, bright white head. Nose is clean with some light, bready notes and a hint of lemon and yeast. Taste follows nose - very clean with only a suggestion of noble hops at the finish and perhaps a trace of butter (diacetyl?). Mouthfeel is light in body with an easy carbonation, but lacking the crispness I've come to associate with the style. Overall, very pleasant and drinkable although it departs slightly from the style with regards to the body and finish in my opinion.
