Summer - Captain James Jack Pilsner - OMB developed this smooth, refreshing pilsner beer as our salute to the spirit, courage and resolve of Captain Jack and the members of the Mecklenburg Convention (see www.May20thSociety.org for more information). A classic northern German "Pils", this straw-colored lager is smooth, with a subtle yet assertive hoppiness that doesn't overwhelm your palate or the beer's malt backbone. A perfect summer refresher.

Another win for this brewery that is located in my state. I think this is a perfect example of what a pilsner should taste like. Its isn't pretentious it is what it is, but it is done well. My only complaint as is the case a great deal of the time with craft breweries who make this style of beer is its on the pricey side. You can get a very similar beer in the macro world for a quarter of the price or at least a third. Nevertheless, this is a nicely balanced beer.

Malty, clear, crisp, with just the right amount of hops to balance everything out. This is a very enjoyable beer. I will buy it again, more than anything to convert more friends to this great world in which we live. There is more out there than just the macro's and guys like these tend to do it better.
