Pours a golden yellow, lots of bubbles and a huge white fluffy head which take a bit of time to die down.
The smell is malts,straw and grass. Smells like summer!
The taste is malty and like the smell has a grass like flavour. Very light.
The mouth feel is really smooth and light, with medium carbonation.
Overall quite nice,light and refreshing. Very subtle flavours but if you let it warm up a bit, it becomes very enjoyable.

A - Golden straw in color with lots of tiny and big bubbles, white soapy head that has okay retention, not much lacing.
S - Floral hops with some pale malt sweetness, some grassiness as well.
T - All about the hops, spicy and floral hops hit you and there is a touch of sweetness from malts. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy, lingers in your mouth for a while.
M - Light and refreshing, moderate carbonation.
O - A solid beer, I would put it just slightly under SA noble pils, but I look forward to a sixer of this every year.

12oz bottle, the first of the 2012 batch, into a Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a crystal clear pale gold body beneath an inch of fine white head. Average retention, spotty lace. Pretty good.
S: Clean and simple, with crackery malt, spicy hops, and a touch of citrus fruit. Light minerality. Pleasant.
T: Opens with bread crust, followed quickly by fresh, spicy, herbal hops; some sweeter malt balances with dry, crisp lager yeast on the super-clean, mildly fruity finish. Vibrant and enjoyable throughout.
M: Lively, frothy, slightly coarse carbonation in a soft medium body. Good.
O: This is a terrific, piquant, crisp Pils - but I can't imagine it will still be so tasty come July...
