Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz bottle in to a pilsener glass.

A- Pours an absolutely clear and golden with minimal head and a little retention. Looks like an American macro.

S- Bready malts and a solid amount of spice, accompanied by some hoppy notes.

T- It's hard to pinpoint any one standout flavor, so I'd say this tastes a bit like a garden salad. Not my favorite.

M- Pretty light, but well-carbonated. Could use a bit more body.

O- I don't really have anything negative to say about this offering, but there isn't much good to say either.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color with almost no head

S: Some bready pilsner malts, grains, and lightly spicy hops. Very simple and clean

T: Follows the nose. Lightly sweet and bready malts, cereal grains, and light grassy hops. Finishes with a light lingering of the hops, but still very much on the clean side

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid American-style Czech pils with a good amount of flavor that borders on being sessionable. A nice spring seasonal

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance –Pours a deeper yellow- golden colored brew with a one half finger pure white head. The head fades rather slowly, leaving a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – A musty and grainy aroma create the base of the brew. Mixed with these smells are a lighter grassy and herbal smell as well as a little bit of a papery aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slightly grainy flavor with hints of a caramel sweetness. As the taste advances the sweetness fades more, with a slightly herbal and grassy hop flavor coming to the tongue. The hop flavors remain relatively light, but persist to the end of the taste, where the grassy flavors then grow a bit stronger, leaving a lightly bittered and malty flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –For a 5.2% abv. pilz ,the body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thickness takes away from the refreshing nature ever so slightly (very slightly), but accentuates the more herbal and grassy hop flavors of the brew. Overall it is a pretty decent feel.

Overall – A decently easy drinking and refreshing brew. Nothing too flavorful or special, but good for what it is meant for; a somewhat crisper, easy drinking, and refreshing brew to drink while sitting and conversing with friends.

12 oz bottle poured into a Kostritzer pilsner glass.

A: Pours a golden straw color typical of the style. The head is a one finger white shade. It fades quickly, nor does it leave much lacing on the glass.

S: I really like how hoppy this one is. Tons of zesty, grassy noble hops bombard my nose with only a modicum of malt sweetness coming through.

T: The flavor doesn't come across quite right; it seems to be heavy in both buttery and vegetal components. It has that green bell pepper quality I tend to dislike in some pilsners. Some sweetness builds on the midtaste which slightly wrecks the balance.

M: Not as crisp as I like in the style. It's properly light, but the hops don't really cleanse the sweetness particularly well.

O: Merely an average pilsner; the vegetal character really hurts it. Not bad, but there are much better lagers out there.

Drinkable beer. I'm going straight from the bottle so I can't tell you what it looks like. Smells like a euro pilsner, very clean one too. Tastes clean and crisp and a mild sweetness of malt with a nice little hop flowering. Feels a bit dusty in the aftertaste. Overall a respectable, clean, session worthy brew. Can't say I really love the whole name and labeling going on. Trash doesn't make me want to drink... makes me want to shower. I guess this brew showers your mouth?

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Bright yellow, crystal clear with a hefty 3 finger head of white foam that does not sink.

S - Lightly sweet aroma, lemon citrus, mild floral and grassy hops, light yeast, very subtle nose.

T - Bright lemon citrus notes, the grassy hops are more earthy than the nose describes, nice snappy bitterness against the soft grainy background, notes of golden delicious apples, the finish is crisp, bright, and refreshing.

M - Heavy side of light bodied, crisp and clean feel, adequate carbonation.

Very good pilsner here. Nice amount of bittering hops, mellow yeast, and a sweet and soft malt base. A bright and refreshing beer.

Serving type: on-tap
