Late one night after a drug-free fueled raid on my own mind. It occurred to me the most disastorous of capitalist consequence has occurred in this country of the U.S. of A.

You still can't find a good beer.

That's right. I said it. Just like the Europeans have been saying forever. And by beer I mean the stuff our Pappy, and especially Pappys Pappy drank. Especially if your last name has no vowels in it. Isn't that special...

But I digress : A lager - Golden and crisp and uncomplicated from the burden of excess hop, barley or roasting faggotry. A straight, drinkable, readily available, and AFFORDABLE beer.

Thank god D.C. is close enough to dutch country. All hail the greatest beer in America.

Pours a pale golden color. A small white head with good retention and lacing.
Smells floral and hoppy. Taste is similar. Hops at the forefront with some nice herbal, earthy flavors. A bit hoppy for a pilsner. Has a somewhat dry finish. Very flavorful, yet subtle.
Light body and lots of carbonation, as expected with the style.

Light and refreshing, yet flavorful. My new go to pilsner. Pairs well with some food, or on its own on a hot summer day (we have plenty of those here in Miami.)

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A: Pours a golden straw color with an impressive luster to it. The head is a three finger white color with average retention. Eventually, the head settles to one finger with nice patches of lacing left on the glass.

S: Very zesty and grassy from the hops, with just a touch of citrus and earth. The hops take center stage over the pils malt backbone.

T: Plain and simple, this is a pilsner that thinks its an IPA. Lots of hop flavor and bitterness abound. Grass and earth are the initial flavors, before giving way to black pepper, grapefruit rind, lemon zest, and pine notes on the finish and aftertaste. There's even a modicum of hop-driven complexity - a bit more than the average IPA, in fact. This is one of the more flavorful pilsners I've had, with the malt backbone helping to keep the surprising hop profile in check...but only just.

M: Light and spritzy with healthy carbonation and big dryness. Not as easy to drink as other beers in its ilk, due to the (at times) strong bitterness, but it's incredibly refreshing on a hot day.

O: This is a pilsner that makes you stop to think about what you're drinking. It's not as chuggable as others, but it's much bigger than the average pils. Oh yeah, I like this one a lot. So much so, that I bought a case of the stuff.
