Notes / Commercial Description:
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).

Pours a lightly hazed golden straw, minimal head. Musty pils malts and light doeses of grassy/spicy and citrus hops... carries forward to taste. Taste is fuller than scent dictated and a bit heavier than the stated ABVs... very pleasant, clean and refreshing but filling at the same time. Lighter side of medium bodied, lightly oily and smooth. Overall, impressed with another beer from this newer local brewery.

Draft at Prohibition Taproom in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with lighter edges and a two finger, frothy white head that has great retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring.  Chunks of soapy lace left behind.

Inviting aroma with a nice balance of pale malts, light fruit and earthy hop notes.  Strong spicy hop presence with hints of grass and straw countered by bready yeast, biscuit, apple and pear.

Fuller bodied than expected with a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers over the earthy and sweeter notes into a dry finish.  This provides some dry bitterness that compliments the earthy grass and straw flavors without overpowering everything else.  Really well balanced with a nice malt backbone that counters the hops and light fruit notes.  Hints of bread and biscuit as well as some apple and pear sweetness toward the finish.
