On draft, pours a hazy bright yellow with a big fluffy white head.

The nose is very bright and fragrant. Zesty, floral, lemon, a little earthy hops, and cracker. The flavor is grassy hops, zesty, earthy, with just a bit of lemon and just a tad bit of soap. The finish is clean, very wet and refreshing.

I like this. Would be great to have around in the summer on a regular basis.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.

Pale, golden yellow with a thick, foamy white head, nice lacing.

Grassy, lightly floral, with a crackery malt backbone.

Medium bodied with a crisp, clean finish.

A very nice, easy drinking pilsner. Nothing particularly outstanding, but just very well done overall.

from notes

The forum love this beer gets is a little played out, but I do enjoy a well crafted pils and this definitely fits the bill. Clean, light and a zippy hop profile make this an attractive option in the hoppy-pils sub-category. They should probably bottle this.

Pint at "b2" taphouse in Salem. $3.00 Simple yellow lager beer with a largish frothy purest white head. Good fresh grassy hop aromas, malt is caramel,bready,nutty Taste is very refreshing zingy,grassy,fruity hop predominates..very light tasing but far from boring . Good palate for the style went down well enough. Good simple lager would have been even better in high summer.

On tap.

A: Straw color, lacking in head. Lots of bubbles.

N: Ample pilsner malt and hint of hops. A touch of musty grape.

T: Leans towards the bitter with a light touch of sweetness.

M: Full mouthfeel.

O: Not as refreshing or interesting as Heater Allen, but very clean and good for a hoppier crossover in the style. This batch might have been out of touch with previous ones, too.
