On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest.

The beer pours a golden color with a large white head. The aroma is fairly spicy with some nice rye and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is also very enjoyable. There is quite a bit of rye and some orange citrus, as well as some lighter pilsner malts and additional spice notes. Very easy to drink, with a light mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.

On tap at Downhouse in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a perfectly clear golden/yellow color. A two finger, dense white head forms with excellent retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: At first is a bit of sweetness. Big bready rye aromas come next. A light peppery spice with some fruity and floral hops in the finish. I like it.
T: Again, starts off sweet with a pronounced fruitiness. Orange rind and pears. Then quickly comes the big bready rye flavor that I love. Larger yeast and a dryness in the finish to balance out the initial sweetness. Grass and floral hops and a light lingering bitterness. There is lots going on here.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp carbonation, very clean, and smooth. So easy and enjoyable to drink. A great lager. All day with this.

It is not a classic example of a Pilsener, but the rye adds a lot of character. Something I really enjoy and went perfectly with my burger. I would highly recommend this.

The beer pours a nice cloudy golden body with a thick white head that slowly fades and a leaves a little bit of lacing on the glass.

S: It has a sort of fruity smell, almost like a tripel actually. If I ever smelled this in a blind smelling I would have never guessed that it is a pilsner.

T: Oh yeah this is what a pilsner should taste like. Man it has that nice fruitiness, with sweet grain and a little bit of that typical pilsner type taste. I would have to say this is one of the best tasting pilsners I have ever had.

M: The beer is very creamy feel and has a a nice thick body. There is a tiny bit of crispness on the back of the throat, but all in all the beer goes down with ease.

O: This is ANOTHER great beer from Deep Ellum. I love being able to get their beer so fresh and I think this would be perfect on a hot summer day after mowing the lawn. I would for sure buy this delicious beer again.

I was in the mood for something crisply hopped, refreshing (it was a balmy evening) and not too strong since I was winding down for the night. This seemed like a good choice—plus it’s from Texas. Drink local!

This poured a golden straw color, with some foam that quickly died down.

It had a light aroma with a hint of rye spice and not much noticeable hop aroma.

The flavor had more of a hop presence. It was grassy, but not like a freshly mowed lawn. Rather, it was more like a lawn that was mowed yesterday morning.

There’s some spice on the finish. Some hop bitterness on the flavor comes through.

It’s definitely sessionable and summer-appropriate, but despite the premise its just not very exciting.
