Another in a great Minnesota sampling from Grant & Chaz.

Never heard of this brewery until Grant told me about it, interested to try this sample.

A -- Hazy pale gold with a massive, thick, dense white head. Can conditioned? I'd guess. I'm rating this good because the head lasts so long and leaves terrific lacing.

S -- Light citrus and spiciness in the nose. Mybe even a touch of pininess (northwoods beer?).

T -- Sweet, yeasty breadines right up front with spiciness following and a touch of citrus toward the end. Definite reins in the aftertaste, but nothing so harsh that it kills the palate.

M -- Mouthfeel is crisp and dry with a light body.

O -- This is quite an interesting take on the Pilsner style. One of the better crosses of traditional style and current craft-brew trends I've tried. I'd grab this often if it had local availability.

Serving glass: Poured from can into Pilsner glass.

Appearance: Clear gold with good sized, stark white head that leaves nice lacing rings.

Smell: Dried out apple, pepper, straw, hay, and a titch of citrus.

Taste: Light malt backbone of dry apple, straw and fresh cut grass. Nice peppery finish with some floral and citrus notes. Fairly hoppy and bitter like a good Northern German Pilsner.

Feel: Light body with moderately high carbonation. Crisp, dry and very clean finish. Perfect for the style.

Overall: This is a textbook example of a German Pilsner and it is executed perfectly. Nothing unexpected here, but if I want a local Pilsner, this would be my first choice.
