12 oz bottled on 04/16/14. Served in a pint glass. Beer pours pale yellow in color, not quite transparent, with a medium white head. Super pilsner hop aroma reaches across the room to smack you in the face, as if to say, "hey, there's a pilsner here, why aren't you drinking it?" (Note: benefits from being served in a glass.) This is apparently thanks to dry hopping with Saphir, a relative of German Hallertauer. Flavor is in line with expecations: super crisp, sharp bite of hops, though not overall particularly bitter. Finishes really dry. A great example of the style.

Dry hopped with saphire bottled on 6/4/14

Pours a pillow topped off white head. Color is a clear straw yellow with active carbonation in the glass. Lots of lace left.

Flavor profile: Dry, grassy hops. Kind of herbal. Bready like a pils should be. Has a light lemon zest citrus flavor. Light fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Dry and crisp. Clean. Light bodied. Ends dry.

Overall, a pretty decent pils. Seemed to lack on flavor a little bit. I did enjoy it, however.
