12oz Bottle.

Hazy golden, heavy white foam.

Pleasantly bitter with noble hops, but easy tasting. No sulfur characteristics. The finish is clean, and of light malt.

Carbonation is slightly too heavy for me.

Enjoyable take on a pilsner.

4.11/5  rDev +15.8%

A-a clear pale gold with a creamier white head. Great retention and some effevesence

S-rich biscuit tones and mild earthy hops

T- rich malt flavors, big bread balanced against the milder noble hops. There's a pleasant fruity aspect on the finish

M-a little thinner, but with a nice fullness to it. No noticeable "bubbly" feeling from the carbonation

O-a really good, lighter but full-flavored Pilsner.
