Holy City was the first pint I sampled when I went to visit the brewery. What a homerun at the first at-bat! The beer was served in a pint glass and had a fantastic golden color with anice inviting aroma. the first sip was awesome and the mouthfeel and swallow gave no hint of any unwanted aftertaste or dry feeling. This is a well crafted brew, I wish they sold it in my part of the country. An outstanding choice for those who like pilsner beers.

Growler filled at CBX. Poured into a Pint Glass.
Pours a clear straw-gold with a huge fluffy white head that leaves some spotty lacing as it recedes. Crisp aromas of honey, malt, and lightly grassy, herbal hops. Very clean. Lots of grainy toasted malt in the taste with some slightly sweet corn and more floral, grassy hops in the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly slick and crisp, with a medium body and decent carbonation. Not a bad Pilsner overall, and nicely sessionable on a hot day.

Not completely clear yellow-gold, maybe a little chill haze. The head is loosely foamy, leaving behind some webby lacing. Nice, warm biscuity malt aroma with a mild noble hop spiciness. Tasty pilsner malt, grassy and straw-like hop bitterness, and some lingering graininess. Light and mostly crisp in the mouth. Simple and good...surprisingly, it was the lagers that impressed me most from this brewery.

Served this beer on tap at the brewery. Served in a pint glass, poured a clear straw color, produced a average white head, great retention and left ample lacing on the glass. The aroma of consisted of malted grain and piney hops. Medium in body, this classic German Pilsener contained a foundation of malted grain, lemon zest, and citric hops. Very nice amount of hop flavor for a German Pilsner. Great session beer, more hoppy then normal for this classic style- Makes this a must try if you are in South Carolina!

A: Had this beer on-tap at Oak Barrel Tavern. Had a pale yellow color and a mostly clear consistency. There was an inch of fluffy, creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.
S: A sharper smell than I expected, with a lot of hops evident.
T: This is a surprisingly hoppy beer (for a pilsner), but that's not necessarily unwelcome. Also had some malt and a hint of lemon. A pretty decent, likable flavor.
M: A good amount of carbonation with a slightly slick finish. Light-bodied.
O: While not exactly a classic pilsner (it has a lot more hops), this is a well done, drinkable beer.
