12 oz bottle pours a hazed, light gold color with an excellent cap of creamy white head. Fades at a medium pace to a cool-looking sheet of lace. Besides the haziness, which is definitely not in the traditional pilsner lexicon, this is a great looking brew.
Nose is nice; grassy noble hops mix with a zesty, bready rye character. Nothing extraneous, exactly as advertised...smells good, fresh and hoppy.
Taste is well done too, its clean and crisp with plenty of grassy hop flavor and bitterness. The rye seems to have a drying effect on the beer as it does not have the malt sweetness that some import pilsners can exhibit. I dont really have anything negative to say on this beer, except maybe a little depth would help - maybe a zing of malt in the middle. It was a delicious surprise as I hadnt heard much (any) hype on this one, but I'll be damned if next time I am up in the Metroplex I wont pick up a couple sixers of this.

Served in a tulip glass.
Color is a hazy straw yellow. Pours with a big foamy head that leaves a nice lacing behind.
Not a lot to this one one the nose.
Very distinct rye flavor, with a little sweetness from the malt. It'd a pleasant tasting beer, not a lot of complexity though.
A little more substantial in the mouth than I'd have expected from a pilsner, but still has nice snap to it.
Overall a pretty decent beer, but not one I'd go out of my way to get again. Would probably enjoy this more on a hot summer's day.
