Poured from a fresh growler into a Hill Farmstead glass.
A - Light golden summer straw, finest clarity, slow dance of wandering aimless bubbles.
Beautiful crisp head with delicate wedding night lacing all the way.
S - Fresh malt, kiss of lemon, morning air after a nights rain. Freshness
T - A tight flavor of light malt, gorgeous flower, lemon, and a fine crisp finish. Slightly dry to complete the experience.
M - Dances across the palate, Fred and Ginger stlye. All you have to do is embrace the beauty. Carbonation is pitch perfect, this is a treasure to enjoy.
O - With all the portfolio of beer, setting such a beautiful example of a German Pilsener is a sign of true craftsmenship.
This is simply (and quite complex) a stunning beer by Hill Farmstead.

Cheers all

On tap at Blackback.

Poured into a black logo HF stem glass, a pale, golden-yellow color with a huge puff of white head, which retained nicely and coated the glass with thick lacing. In the nose, grains, sugar, earth, farmland, light citrus. The taste largely reflected the aroma, toasted cereal grains, with a sugary pale malt sweetness, mid-palate bringing in lots of grass, earthiness, and light citrus and stone fruit. Pretty complex for a pils. Light-medium body, crisp and lightly bitter. I'm not a big pilsner fan, but this one was definitely one of the best I've had.

on tap at Hill Farmstead poured into a tasting glass.

A~ looks exactly like a white gummy bear haha with a nice tight head and some lacing.

S~ tons of pils malt along with honey and molasses.

T~ nose is right on! amazingly clean with more sweetness here, this could really be brewed with a bit of honey.

M~ great carbonation of course, incredibly clean and just all around refreshing!

O~ i missed out on this last time, i'm glad i finally got to try it. i think this is definitely my favorite pils. thats definitely not saying much cause i generally don't go for the style but i could drink this every day! 100th HF and the like review!
