3.46/5 rDev -5.7%
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.

I had this on tap at Houlihan's served chilled in a pint.
The color is the lightest golden, almost a pastel yellow with light hazed from the chill on the glass. The head is thick white with small bead and lace sticks,retention is good. The smell is faint yet floral with light herbal aspect, more aroma comes forward with some malt as it warms with mild citrus accent. The feel is great, very clean with light astringent element yet very good bitterness balanced with the malt which is mostly dry w/ low sweetness and moderate carbonation is not overdone with slight resins from hops and not sharp or too agressive in feel.
The flavor is very good with nice malt which supports the gentle herbal flavors from the hops which have a nice citrus element and light grass adding a mild acidity to the body with generally clean yeast flavor which showcases the other flavors with no alcohol making for a very drinkable pils. I really enjoyed this one at first but it was served very cold and I am glad I had the second and allowed it to warm gradually becaused the hop aromatics shone through and the dimension of hops was not realized completely with the first pint.

Trauger pils has a hazy cloudy straw color. The head was bright white and frothy fading to a patchy ring. Desent carbonation.
Aroma is quite hoppy with a sutle spiciness and lemon grass. Pale malts balance it out a bit too.
Taste was pretty good, It was spicy and hint hints of lemon tart. Malts are crisp and sharp.
Drinks smooth and dry with lingering bitterness into the aftertaste.
I have no problems with this brew and would drink it again.
