3.73/5 rDev -4.6%
This brew is a hazy dark yellow with some activity. It certainly looks the part of a pils, seemingly unfiltered with a well maintained off-white head. The island of foam sustained for the duration gives back lace in a ring at the top that's very thick, with patching and sporadic ringing for the continuation.
The nose doesn't exactly pour out, but this beer seems to fit. It's mainly floral with some grains showing, though refined and without any of the "unclean" aspects, so to speak. It's smooth particularly in the flavor. There are some sweeter notes seemingly from the impartation of a fruitiness in the yeast, and some malts on the dry side offer a touch of cracker. There's a good balance, as advertised, between hops and malts; for a German, though, it could use a little more bitterness and a general increase in the strength (not heaviness) particularly of aroma and, to a point, of flavor.
The body is light with a crisp, not-quite-effervescent froth on the palate. It's clean and has the brightness a pils should have.

Served in a tumbler.
...An even whiter Portlandia...? Anyway, this stuff pours a partly hazy brass topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises light white bread, clean grass, stiff flowers, and a touch of pine needle. The taste brings in more of the same, the bread now much more biscuit-y and the grass and flowers mixing with some already-mixed greens, providing a hefty amount of hoppy goodness without becoming overpowering. This is the kind of intense balance most brewers just can't seem to figure out. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a pretty enjoyable pils, something I look forward to during my future Chi-Town excursions.

A - hazy, bright golden color with half finger white fluffy head
S - aromatic hops, alike a sessional APA
T - hoppier than your average pilsner. Medium-light bitterness with a crisp finish.
M - thinner body, lower carbonation, finishes tart and clean, while being semi-dry
O - A refreshing pilsner with a mild hop taste and aroma.
