This is a grainy, hoppy pilsner. Strong flavors for the style, but a bit unbalanced by the straight bitter approach. This to me is as close to being an IPA or a Pale Ale as it is a pilsner. Almost like Prima Pils from victory but not nearly as good or smooth.

In fairness this is out of the 'new' can, and I haven't had it on tap.

Not a very complex beer. It starts in one direction, and finishes in that one direction.

I could kick back a few of these, but probably won't because there are much finer, and more interesting brews for this price point.

A fresh draft of their Vienna is still the only good option for me at this brewery, even though like this, it's also one dimensional.

Nice clear yellow, fizzy with a good head. Smells and tastes fruity with some mineral qualities that I actually enjoy in a pilsener. I would order this again if given the chance, a tasty beer. Unfortunately I live nowhere near Tennessee and therefore I probably won;t be drinking this beer again any time soon.

Tried this on-tap at the downtown Chattanooga branch. The server said this was a seasonal specialty. Poured a clear, deep honey yellow with a little white head. Decent retention. Aromas and flavors of honey, sweet pilsner malts. Pretty crisp, with a clean finish. Not terribly complex. Light-bodied. An easy drinker, but nothing phenomenal.

Draught in Chattanooga location. This one pours a crystal clear golden color. there was a small white head on mine. The aroma is milder, with some grass and floral notes. It is a lighter body beer. It’s taste is somewhat dry, and a touch biter. Nothing impressive about it, but nothing bad either.
