A: Pale straw yellow, with a good amount of pure white head on top. The head dissipates a bit, but even dissipated there is a full 2 fingers. Perhaps only the slightest amount of haze.

S: Pilsner malt, and freshly baked bread. There is a touch of fruitness to it, as well as a subtle floral aroma, perhaps moving slightly towards herbal. The aroma is subtle, yet inviting.

T: Slightly herbal, nice pilsner malt flavor, there is a touch of freshly baked bread. The finish is floral with a little herbal flavor holding out until the end.

M: Light body, good carbonation, and the finish has a nice lingering herbal bite, giving the beer a weightier feel.

O: Overall this is a damn fine Pilsner. Good for a nice summer day, or whenever you want to have a couple beers, and relax. Nothing crazy, just a good, solid brew. I'd drink this anytime.

Served on tap at Smartmouth Brewing Company. Pours a nice frothy yellow with good carbonation and a solid Pilsener malt aroma. Taste is crisp, dry, and slightly medicinal. Overall, a solid offering.

Mellow. Good beer on a hot summer day. Slightly sweet. Gentle touch of malt and yeast.

Poured a light golden body with fizzy two finger carbonated head that dies quick without lace. The aroma is airy and light, with notes of grains and bitter hops. Beer is light bodied and smooth and actually hits a good balance between a dry, bitter hop taste that has a crisp finish and some sweetness from pils malt. A light and refreshing pils that is enjoyable to kick back with.

On tap at the tasting room in Norfolk, VA. IBU listed at 26 on the board description.

A-Pours a bright, only slightly hazy straw, golden yellow. A fluffy 2 finger head settles on top of the beer. Great carbonation, the bubbles never stop moving in this one.

S-Smells light, herbal and grassy. Undertone of cracker and biscuit in the nose.

T-Follows the nose well. Refreshing, goes down smooth but with only a very slight herbal dry bitterness in the back end to keep the palette clean. Grassy hops are subdued, however mix well with the subtle breadiness to form a fantastic drinking beer.

M-Crisp, dry, refreshing, this beer will be a perfect introduction into the warmer spring months. Perfect for a backyard BBQ or an easy day spent on the porch with the sun shining.

O-Very impressive. As far as I know, the only lager that's being brewed in the Tidewater region, and it's a home run for me. Hope they plan to keep it around for a while.
