The beer pours a nice gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a crisp pilsner malt scent along with a Saaz hop aroma; very nice. The taste is decent. It has an "all malt" lager taste with a moderate hop bitterness and taste. It's goes down smooth and finishes dry and clean. The mouthfeel is good. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a tastey lager. It's well brewed and easy drinking.

On tap at John Harvards. Pours a clear deep yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits and floral hops. Flavor of some sweet fruits, stale wheat body, and a sweet finish. Spritzy and crisp. Pretty decent and certainly drinkable.

This is an extremely balanced and flavorful pilsener. There isn't much of an aroma, and it isn't anything extraordinary to look at, but I found myself really enjoying the light, buttery flavor and the slight hop/spice kick. On top of that, it's isn't too filling at all, so it can certainly be considered a sessioner.

Poured a light copper hue with a thin lacey cap. There was trace retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light husky grain with a smattering of saaz hop.

The taste consisted of an upfront spicy noble hop giving way to a biscuity malt. There was a lingering hop finish.

The mouthfeel was of average fullness and very crisp.

Overall an easy drinking pils.
