5/5  rDev +26.9%

This brew pours a light golden/straw color which is mostly clear with heavy carbonation and a white, fluffy three finger head which lasts for several minuets. There is moderate lacing on the glass, good for a Pilsner. Some of the head remains until the end.

The smell is musty, straw and wet hay, just like a good Pils should be. There is also a grassy, grainy smell along with the smell of light peppery hops and lemon.

The taste follows the nose with a clean slightly dry taste of straw and lemon along with light peppery hops scattered throughout from beginning to end. There is a crisp, cracker like taste with ending in the cleanest finish I have ever had in a lager. There is also a very slight grassy, gritty taste on the back end, just like a Pils should have, which does not interfere with the clean finish in any way.

Overall, this just might be the perfect example of what a Pilsner should be. It is the best Pils I have had to date.

On Tap at Rattle “N” Hum. Pours Golden with white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Piney, herbal hops and biscuit malt fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Very nice Pilsener.
