Notes/Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

3.6/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a cloudy bright straw color, with a fizzy white head. Good retention for the ABV.

Aroma is similar to a weaker pilsner. Not very aromatic, but pleasant. Nice noble hops with a very slight funk and a clear dry smell.

Tastes like a pilsner that's been watered down and taken on some wild yeast. Good noble hop flavor, nice hint of the wild yeast. Pretty much delivers whats promised.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing, but the carbonation and yeast lend to it's body enough to separate it from something totally watery.

I would drink this again if in a very very specific mood. I'm glad it exists as an example of an old tradition, and it delivers on its promises.

3.46/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is a light cloudy yellow color with a half finger head.
Aroma is bready, straw, lemon.
Taste is more of the same. Grains, yeast, light malt.
Mouthfeel is medium and crisp. Doesn't leave much lingering.
This is a refreshing beer but not complex at all.
It's one or two dominant flavors.
