My bottle was notched for March, but the beer tasted plenty fresh. The hop aroma is more floral than more German or Czech pilsners, less grassy too, but it's still Noble hops. There's also a pleasant mix of dry toasty grains. The flavor finishes with a dry, peppery bite, though there's clean, creamy dough upfront before the floral, lemon hops kick in. A fine, fine pilsner. give it a try.

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.
