Can from MrBarleywine, thanks for the opportunity Mike!
Just a touch of haze in a deep straw colored liquid, topped with a creamy bubbly bone white head that persists forever leaving lots of stickies on the sides of the glass. Crackery bready malt aromas are nicely balanced with a bit of spicy floral hop. Light sulfur rounds out the nose. The flavor is rich bready crackery pilsner malt with spicy hop to counter. Slight metallic flavor towards the end is a bit off putting. I can imagine that this was a better beer when fresher, but I just noticed that this can is best by July 2014. Still no excuse for the metallic flavor. I will rate as is and hopefully get a chance to sample again.

12 oz. can poured into a Pils glass.

A- Crystal clear straw yellow. White head towers, and retains reasonably well. A bit of lacing.

S- Spicy noble hops come out first. Saaz hops maybe? A little grain. A little grass.

T- Clean malt flavor, a little spicy, a little earthy and floral. Malt is a little grainy, but very nice.

M- Light, very crisp. Rather clean finish. Just a bit dry, enough to beg for another gulp on a hot day.

O- Very tasty and crisp. Well done Pils, especially by an American brewer. Well deserved to be an award winner.
