Poured from a bomber (Batch #20) into a big ass mug, the beer is a hazy, bright, straw gold coloring with a filmy, fluffy, bright white head, and a ton of carbonation action throughout the body. The aromas are toasted grain forward, with a healthy dose of floral hops characteristics, tart lemon notes, and medicinal highlights. Flavors are bitter and spiced hops forward, with a healthy dose of moss, pepper, and grass. Lemon rind highlights, floral accents, and a cracker backbone. Smooth, but light and crisp in mouth. The aftertaste is tart, resinous, and bitter, with more of the hops spice lingering on. Crisp, effervesced, dry finish. Very drinkable.

Yo. A Pilsiner. Great stuff. You can drink these all day. Right.

It's pretty yellow and not quite clear. The aroma, though subtle, is right where it should be. A mild, hoppy indicator of the nice pils to come.

The taste is a nifty freshness that the site should be. Extremely refreshing. Gimme a six of these babies. The aftertaste has the same freshness. Something nice to linger on the palate. This is a tough beer to make. There are so many crappy american ones, but they made the effort and came up with one worth drinking.
