At half the price of my Duvel, this is a great alternative. It has an extremely clean hoppy taste and is very refreshing at only 168 calories.

This beer is delicious and light while still hoppy.

December 14, 2014

12 oz bottle, pilsner glass

A – Very light straw, as in SRM = 1, and extremely clear. A couple centimeters of bright white head, fairly low retention. Medium bubbles cascade up towards the foam, picking up the light.

S – Very fresh, kneaded raw white bread dough, the Pils malt in all its glory. Some hop aroma, floral and herbal. A touch of sulfur, then bitter hops.

T – A lot of noble hops, both bittering and flavor. Very much floral, with a touch of herbal/medicinal flavor. Dough or very light water cracker.

M – Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, low dryness in the finish but enough to help cleanse the palate. Primary component, though, is the hop bitterness.

O – A lot to like here, and it’s a pilsner made using obviously high quality ingredients. Would be very enjoyable on a late spring day in the beer garden. A bit overbalanced toward the bitter hops, but still well made.

Cord out of a 12 ounce bottle into a Pilsner glass
Beautiful Rocky head and a brilliant clear light gold body
Floral front in the nose...saaz hops for sure
Hop bite is very much in there in the front with a doughy malty middle and nice balance at the end
Light
Nice beer
I would have it again
