Sampled at the Hay Merchant, Houston TX; April 2012
The beer arrives with a clear gold color. It is topped by a frothy, half-finger thick, pale off white colored head that leaves some faint lacing on the sides of my glass as I work my way through. The aroma is herbal, grassy, and has a touch citrus character to it. It is quite dry smelling, with a cracker like maltiness; this has a really nice malt expression to it though this is fairly light and I like the smooth, integrated hop character that is here as well.

As the beer first hits my palate, it is crisp, with a bite of hop bitterness, a lean pale malt character, and is overall quite cool and refreshing. The bitterness has an herbal edge to it, and is definitely a showcase for a clean, noble hop laden spiciness and herbal character. A cracker like malt / grain character lingers on the palate with the hop bitterness, the latter dominates finish just enough that you really want to take another sip.

This is quite easy drinking, before I know it the beer is gone; this is an awesome Pilsener that I would love to drink a lot of. It might even be better than HefeWeizen from the same brewery, though I would need to be in right mood to consume this beer (though I don’t see that of being much of an issue).
