Pours light yellow, lots of bubbles, small and sudsy head. Crystal clear. Aroma is all hops, very flowery with a dash of citrus. Taste is lemon, then pine with a bitter hop finish. Sparkly mouthfeel. Crisp and refreshing. Nice left coast interpretation of a German style.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet bready malts and noble hops with a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet toasted malts with a good size grassy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid hoppy pils.

12 ounce bottle. Bottled on 11/11/13.

Clear medium straw. Near white moderate head. Ample low sheeting and strands of lace.

Brisk and clean hopped up nose.

Crisp, clean and hoppy. Almost puckering. I get some more then moderate lime and pine soaked hops.Enjoyable and worth a try.

I'm definitely more of a fruity IPA kinda guy. But I could see drinking a few more of these.

3.13/5  rDev -20.4%

Thin, prickly body that wasn't satisfying to drink. Simple pils flavor but lacks the drinkability of a classic example. Also lacks the complexity and full body of a Prima. Overall forgettable, like a generic brewpub blonde. It isn't badly made, but there are a number of other pale lagers I'd go with first.
