Our Pilsner is assertively hopped with Hallertau and Tettnanger noble hops and has a cracker-like malt backbone that finishes crisp and dry coming in at 4.8% ABV, which makes this one highly drinkable (which is the point, duh).

A big shout out to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of light grains, a bit of lemon. Taste is grassy hops, some lemon tartness, dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Pours a hazy gold yellow with a medium white slowly fading head, mild lacing. Scents of citrus, grains and grass fill the nose with some fruity and yeast notes as well follow thru on the taste. Palate is a medium clean crisp body, fairly pleasant on the tongue. Finish is sweet mild spice fruit some lemon, yeast, grains and yeast and nutty aftertaste. Overall quite pleasant refreshing summer brew.

Nice bready malt aroma with light noble hops. Very clean tasting, but a bit sweet for my taste, but there is moderate hop bitterness to balance it out. Hazy golden appearance with a fine head that dissipates to a thin lacing. I like it, and while not my favorite pils, definitely worth drinking.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a golden amber color with a billowy two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading slowly over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma was largest of a bready malt smell mixed with some herbal and grassy smells. Along with these was a lighter citrus and light fruit aromas as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice crisp malt taste. As the flavor advances notes of hop come to the tongue with the flavors being a combination of citrus grapefruit and herbal hops. Along with the hop so too comes some lighter fruit flavors of apple and pear, which sweeten the flavor ever so slightly. In the end the sweetness of the fruit fades some with the hop getting slightly stronger, leaving a nice balanced and crisp flavor of a light hop and bready base to be left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer was on the medium side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that was rather average. Both made for a very drinkable and refreshing beer with a nice crisp feel.

Overall – A rather refreshing beer overall. It has a nice blend of hop and malt and a good level of sweetness to keep it quite balanced.

12 oz. can poured into Pils glass.

A- A nice toasted golden color. Not quite clear. White head towers in a hard pour and settles at two fingers. Very meringue-like.

S- Malt forward. Some good toasty and bready notes. Small hop presence. A bit earthy. Maybe a slight fruit aroma.

T- Malt forward again. Toasty and bready. Floral and spicy hop flavor in the finish.

M- Light body. A bit of a spicy dry finish.

O- Pretty flavorful. A bit on the malty side for this style, but not bad.
