This is a decent pils. Pours a cloudy gold with a dissipating head. Somewhat closed while cold. Nose is nicely balanced malt and hops. The hops are not too aromatic but set off the malts nicely. I thought this beer would get lots better as it warms up but it didn't really happen. Had another bottle on 2 June and thought it better.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

I know it's wrong, but I just can't help thinking about the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People Eater here... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises flowers, light dry grass, and mild white bread. The taste brings in more of the same, just decidedly muted, watered-down, bland. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a mildly crisp finish. Overall, this is just a boring, less-than-run-of-the-mill pils.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- golden yellow and a ton of turbulent carbonation, finger of white smooth head is inviting

Smell- light, bright, and tangy, definitely some of the more floral noble hops are coming through on this one

Taste- most definitely crisp with some crystal malts, mid mouth bitterness with a finish that also lets the hops though

Mouthfeel- light bodied, fast finish that is crisp and clear

Overall- Even though I'm not particular to the style, this one was a flavorful counterstrike to the norm
