How many beers have you tried that claimed to be a pilsener yet tasted like pasta water? It's nice when the bottle label delivers.
All the marks of a quality european style brew out of the hills of Greenville. Lavender baked pretzel aromas invite a sip of spicy sweet malt juice that finishes long, dry and muscular. This ain't yer pappy's grocery store swill. Seriously impressive brew from Thomas Creek.

Pours a clear, medium yellow body with a shortlived, white head that leaves some patchy, island chain, lace on the pils glass.
Aroma is faint. A bit of grainy malt and a hint of subdued, herbal hops.
Mouthfeel is average, with a light body and medium carbonation.
Taste is pleasant and clean, with grainy and biscuity malt and a subdued hops bitterness. Not very complex.
A good "lawn mower beer", and palate cleanser, but nothing special. Still, better than a macro.

The beer poured murky golden amber (a bottle conditioned pilsner mayber?) The head was white and stood tall, falling slowly to lace the glass.
The aroma was fruity and malty when first poured.
The flavor was fruity and slightly winey. There is some crispness to the flavor, but the beer is nowhere near clean enough for a pils. There is just enough bitterness to keep the beer from becoming sweet.
The finish was dry but fruity. The body was medium.
12 ounce bottle. I could believe this was a pale ale or an english bitter, but a pilsner...no way. Purchased at Total Wine is Charleston, SC.

This beer pours golden color with a slight cloudiness to it with a small head that fades quickly. The nose gives off mildly sweet malt, some barley, with hints of hops. The beer tastes very crisp and clean with a slight citrus hint. Not a great beer, but much better than its mass produced counter parts. Good summer time beer.
