Served in a tumbler.

As this was inexplicably on sale at my local, I had no choice but to pick up a bottle. It pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of dirty-ish white foam. The nose comprises white bread, miscellaneous greenery, a touch of old lemon rind, and a hint of hard water. The taste brings in more of the same, the thick greens swimming playfully amidst a sea of bread, balancing very nicely. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a thickly fluid feel. Overall, a pretty nice beer, something I could easily see downing plenty of during my next visit to the Option (if it is indeed available at the time, of course).

Enjoyed so many drafts of this while in Chicago I decided to take a bottle home with me from a Binny's location in Chicago.

This light lager pours brilliant yellow with a brilliant, persistent head. Slightly hazy, beautiful, playful carbonation. Rich bread and biscuit notes are followed by a wave of floral and grassy noble hop notes and slight peppery notes Hoppy as a north German pilsener should be. Super drinkable, dry finish, big mouthfeel. Puts other lagers to shame.

A tongue-in-cheek Outlaws MC homage maybe? SYLO, OFFO, etc.

After the first taste, I happily recognized this to be the same as a mystery Pils I tried awhile back at Local Option. A home run if I ever saw one... this is great stuff.

Pours a bright saturated gold, perfect clarity. Fluffy head of foam, rings of lace in the glass.

Bready malt and floral hop aromas, trace dried lemon.

Extremely smooth, soft and supple pilsner malt in perfect harmony with grassy, herbaceous noble hops. Dry, lightly bitter aftertaste. Extremely well balanced and tasty. Drinkable by the bucketful, this stuff is great. Planning to seek more out this summer for sure.

A good fit for those seeking a craft alternative to big name pilsners - light in body and just enough hops.
