Shrink-wrapped 750mL swing-top growler generously shared by yourefragile. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stemmed tulip.

Pours a nice light straw-yellow color with a fluffy white head and good retention. Really nice lacing on the sides of the glass as it goes down.

The nose carries a good dose of grain and barley with some light floral and perfume notes. Really well-integrated. Light but fairly complex. Really impressive and on par with the best American pilsners I've had, which mainly consist of those coming very fresh from Victory on tap.

Flavor starts with a nice grain character. Very smooth and soft. Comes in underneath floral-driven hops. Light earthiness and just a touch of spice. Light body and incredibly crisp. Ridiculously easy to drink. I could have easily taken down the growler and more by myself.
