Pours bright golden with a nice white head. The nose is subtle lemons and a touch of grass, ah the delights of Saaz! Drinking this was like being transported back to some of the joys of regional breweries in the Czech Republic and their excellent 12 degree lagers.
At 28IBU though it is a little short on the hop front for a Bohemian pilsner, PU itself is 40IBU of pure Saaz joy. Otherwise this is one of the few American made craft lagers which actually stands up to German and Czech standards.
A lovely brew indeed.
