Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear light golden straw with a fizzy one finger head that quickly fades to leave minimal clouding and halo.

S - Light grassy, floral hops along with some nice caramel malts. Awesome nobel hops.

T - Taste is more malts than usual here, sweet, with some slightly older nobel hops. there is a nice strong bitterness.

M - Mouthfeel is pretty good for a pils. The bitterness at the end is a bit distracting though. Nice carbonation.

O - Overall this isnt a bad German Pilsner. On the nose and mouth, the hops are a bit too prominent. The taste though, the hops are a bit faded.

wonderful take on a classic Pilsner style lager. Best I've had from Texas. Saaz hoppiness rings true and clear. Clean finish, good astringency here. Nice off white head that quickly dissipates. Light straw color and light lace down the glass. Yum! Will buy again.

A: Beautiful light golden and brilliantly clear. Medium white head
that leaves moderate lacing.

S: Very aromatic for a Pilsener, but in great way. Grassy, earthy
noble hops and slightly sweet grain.

T: Almost like tasting noble hop extract, perfectly backed with
pils malt. Almost zero yeast character is present, which lets
the other ingredients shine though.

M: Quite dry and carbonated. Maybe a bit too much, but it
makes for a more refreshing beer - which is nice in canned
form.

O: A very well crafted beer considering what a delicate style it
is. Not quite true to style, but excellent nonetheless.
