12oz bottle in a pilsner glass.
served 2 months from enjoy by date.

pours a slightly cloudt straw yellow while yielding a 1" white/off-white head. decent head retention and lacing.

nose is citric hops (notably lemon zest) with secondary notes of grass, wheat, and malt. aroma translates well to the flavor; it's better, even. nice citric and grassy hop characters with some malt and wheat notes in the background. crisp and tasty; medium-bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.

overall i'm admittedly not a die-hard pilsner buff but this is a very good rendition. crisp, flavorful and refreshing.

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.)
