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.

Serving type: on-tap

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!

The beer is golden yellow and transparent with two inches of fluffy, white head that forms a whipped merengue dome atop the beer. Aromas of pils malt, lager yeast, floral hops, biscuits. True to style. Effortless to drink and enjoy. I'd love to have a keg of this for the warmer months.
