Sampled at the brewery in the tasting room before a brewery tour today.

A nice pale gold/dark straw yellow in colour. White head is 1/2 inch on the pour and sticks around for awhile, leaving lines of lacing down the sides.

Aroma is pretty standard german pilsner. Biscuity with a grassy and noble hop background.

Flavour is the same as aroma. Biscuity/bready up front before the grassy/noble hops take over in the finish.

Pretty plain and just ok pilsner. Didn't do anything to grab me. Overall I think Abita's ales are better than their lagers, but that's just my opinion.

Pint at Khyber Pass in Philly. From notes.

A - Poured mildly hazy and golden. Mild carbonation coming up to a two finger white head. Spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Wheat, grass, a mild hop. Plain, but clean and good..

T - Nice spicy hop with grass and wheat. Orange juice, bubblegum as well. Nice stuff.

M - Good carbonation, medium body, mild bitterness.

O/D - This was a good pils. It was clear that they used wheat in it and it did well with the hop flavour. Good balance and drinkable.
