Bottled on 12/15/2011.
Pours very pale in color, though collects into a bright yellow in the glass. Produces a short head that dissipates quickly. Crystal clear - I was literally able to read the text on the bottle description through the glass. Impressive.
The aroma is typical. Both a nice example of the style while never really standing out of the crowd. A bit of spicy dried grass and doughy pale malt.
Flavor-wise this is a bit more assertive, though in areas I am not sure I agree with. On the palate the beer initially falls a bit flat for me, unbaked white bread dough is about it. Then come the hops. They're spicy and bitter, moreso than I'd like vs the minimal malt flavor contribution. Hard mineral flavor with a sweeter honeyed wheat nuance on the back end of the sip.
Carbonation is more harsh/prickly than I like in a beer.
Overall a solid pilsener. I just wish more breweries brewed these lighter lager styles to encourage some real competition of flavor between brewers.

12 ounce bottle -> Pilsner Flute glass
A - This beer pours up a very clear light to medium gold with a small 1" white head. Retention and lacing are both very good.
S - earthy notes, grass, floral, honey
T - pears, peaches, lemons, grassy flavors, maybe some honey, and a mild bitter finish. Well balanced from start to finish.
M - well carbonated, small aftertaste
O - It is a pilsner which makes it okay by me, but never a beer I just jump up and down for. Having said that though, it was refreshing and enjoyable.
