12oz Brown bottle with twist-off cap featuring "Hop to it!" text, bottled on 07/10/14. Poured into a 2014 Saint Arnold Pub Crawl pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw yellow with a 1/2 finger of head that fades quickly to a thin ring

Smell: Biscuity pilsner malt and soft floral hops

Taste: Noble hop bitterness up front with a biscuit malt middle and a clean sweet finish

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation and clean, crisp feel

Overall: A great american-made pilsner that is perfect for the summer time. For those outside of Texas, if you're a fan of Sierra Nevada Summerfest then you will love this. I personally like my pilsners with more of a hop bite but I'm sure many appreciate the slightly sweet finish.

Refreshing, light pilsner. Malty with a nice hop balance. One of my favorites. I have had this beer on tap and was well impressed. Just tried a bottled version and I was not disappointed. I am only sorry this is a seasonal brew. Excellent accompaniment with summer cookouts.
