A- Clear golden yellow body and a white foam cap of head. Constant stream of bubbles.

A- Clean malt light grassy hops.

T- Grainy sweet malt with a light bitterness that comes through more and sticks around in the finish. Not much in the way of hop flavor.

M- Medium body and smooth with an appropriate level of carbonation.

D- It's not bad, but there are better pilsners out there.

Poured this 12 oz. into a Samuel Adams glass. 2012 Beer Camp release (from notes). The body was straw colored and clear. The head was thin and bright white.

The smell was grainy. Hay. Sulfur. Skunky in a good, noble hops way. Subtle aromas.

The taste was intense noble hops! bold and grainy. Really leafy and fresh.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied and carbonated. Very good.

Great beer....
I have had this beer for the second time this month and have really enjoyed it both times. This is easy one of the best pilsner I have had.

Look very light yellow glow in color. Low head with spider legs.
Smell is slightly fresh fruit or floral.
Taste iss refreshing.

Feel is classic pils.
