I had this on tap.
The nose has light grains, a hint of apple and some canned corn which might suggest sanitation issues with the beer lines.
The beer pours brilliant straw with a 1/2" white foam cap.
The palate is crisp and dry but has a little more apple and canned corn than is necessary. Good hop accent on the finish with a nice balance between the hop and malt.
Light, crisp, and effervescent.

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.
