A good pilsner but with a hoppy twist. Not bad.

one of the more prevalent half acre packages around chicago right now, but a rather safe beer from these guys, who demonstrated to me just how capable of blissful magic they are. this one is pretty straight forward. a pilsener lager with a cream ale richness and lightness at the same time, which was my favorite feature of it. the grain is clean, more belgian pils than german pils in the malt side i think, and the hops are pretty darn light, a little dried grass or hay, and an arid late summer vibe, but its not a bitter beer at all, and its flavored predominantly by the light but textured malt. not as dry as others, which i almost prefer in this context, and the carbonation is really charged up. refreshing and drinkable, but at the end of the day its still a basic pils, which is hard for me to get overly excited about, despite its high overall quality.
