Appearance: Great pale yellow color for a pilsener.

Smell: A nice hint of hops in the nose.

Taste: Crisp and sharp as a pilsener should be, with the added bonus of some hop bite. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Light body and clean.

Drinkability: A very easy drinking beer. Solid recommendation. Order me another.

bottle served in two snifters. thanks Max Millions for brininging it down from NY.

color is perfect straw. little head and lacing.
nose is pilsner hops and malt.
taste is awesome for a pilsner.
finish is dry and refreshing with light hops and malt that is very well balanced.
light mouth-fell. very crisp.
a very satisfactory beer for the still. wish I had a bigger lawn to mow (not really!)
highly recommend.

Has a strong pils aroma to it...barley, hay and noble hops. Straight forward, very good for style.

Taste has that barley, hay-like nutty, grain profile so prevalent in many beers of this style. Pretty strong. Finishes hoppy for style, as the name indicated it would. The noble hops provide a pretty clean finish, that lasts a little into the finish. Actually, this beer is just flavorful all around for the style...both from the initial grainy, barley malt bill to the hops at the end. Very solid pils here. I was worried it would be over the top hoppy for style, but that was luckily not the case.

Served in a shaped pint glass at Firkin.

I've wanted to pick this up for a while now, but never pulled the trigger. Today, that has changed. It pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly dirty foam. The nose comprises light biscuit, strong flowers, grass, and a touch of minerals. The taste brings in more of the same, those flowers and grasses really rocking things, though without singing the tongue. Nice. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a rather crisp finish. Overall, a solid pils, one I could easily see having more of in the future.

Serving type: on-tap
