gorgeously clear "Los Angeles sunset orange" color, with a good white head. Very inviting.
lightly floral aroma, good dose of vanilla and a touch of sweet citrus. not sure it's quite to style but very nice and enjoyable.
very crisp and clean body, dry with a smack of bready sweetness that gives way to a surprisingly bitter finish. Just a hint of orange in there. Great, powerful but straightforward taste.
this is delightful, an absolutely brilliant pilsner. maybe it's not perfect to style but it's damn close. no off flavors or roughness you find in lesser lagers, and it's hopped to the brink. this would make a great apperatif (sp), session beer, or spicy food beer, among other things.
put this up there near dortmunder gold as one of the best lagers kicked out by craft brewers.
