Pours a pale straw gold, with superb tri-finger head of white carbonation. Thick, dense lace.

Nose is malty grains -- toasty and very lager-like.

Taste is toasty and crisp -- both light and very approachable. Beyond the "Summery" lager vibe, there's a definite presence of a citrus/lemon zestiness, adding a welcomed hoppy tone. Delicious, and well-done.

in a bullet, gratis from the brewery yesterday after a tour - big thanks flat 12!

poured cold from the bullet a translucent sunlight yellow to gold to a lawson's finest liquid flared pilsner glass with a wisp of a short lasting white head.

aroma of grainy bread, and a bit of yeast.

cool, crisp, clean, easy drinking medium carbonation, light bodied. great springtime, summer beer. if it wasn't raining and i was cutting the grass, this is what i'd be thirsty for. as it stands, i'm inside and it's raining and it's still hits the spot.

Growler was purchased at Flat 12 on 6/21/13, and later enjoyed in the comfort of my home 2.5 hours away. Pilseners are not generally a beer that I look for my drinking pleasure, but this one is pretty special for the style. The beer was a bright yellow color after being poured into the glass, giving a nice white head. The aroma was mostly grass and malt. By the nose, one could sense this would be a dry beer. On the initial taste, one get german malts, grass, and a level of dryness that makes you want to drink more. On a hot dry this could be an easy drinker. The beer finishes dry with a level of biscuit notes and a grassiness that lingers on the sides of the tongue. The light carbonation gives this beer some staying power, but is still appropriate for the style. Well done, Flat 12!
