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.

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.

on-tap, Baileys

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 at the source.

A crystal clear straw yellow with a dense white head that falls off leaving some lace. The nose is excellent. Big, pungent hop nose with straw pils malt aroma, there's lemon, earth mint and mineral notes. The malt character is mildly doughy, dusty and works really well its the hop and mineral character. The palate opens bitter, earthy, and with a pronounced green hop character, reminiscent of the wurzburger pils. Pleasing, refreshing bitterness with a doughy and mild cotton candy like malt flavor. Drying mildly resiny on the finish, there's lemon, earth and mint. Light in body and moderately carbonated with the mineral character pairing well with the hop and carbonation. Excellent.

Poured from tap. Pristine and clear straw color with a small head.

Balanced with clear aromas of grains, citrus and some crackers. Lacking some "pop" to it, but very correct

Nice crisp and light feel. Balanced with fresh notes of grains, noble hops, and a touch of citrus.

A quality pilsner. Nice and crisp with everything being in the right place.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear light yellow with an off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight bitterness after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is pretty good beer that I am glad I got to try but not something I would go for again most likely.
