Great pils! One of the best I've had. From a 500 ml. can into a pilsner glass. Poured a nice fluffy and white bubbly head; yellow-gold color, typical for this style. Sticky lace on the glass; a nice cream ring around the edges. Smelled like citrus, light spice, peppery, and some malted barley grains. At first it is a bit sweet on my palate, but it finishes dry, slightly bitter, and peppery. There is a little lemon zest in there as well. It finishes smooth and crisp; balanced and light, yet fulfilling. Overall, this is a great German pils. It is especially great for an end-of-summer brew. Sad to see the transition into fall.

Aug '13. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Still strikes me as pretty much the same. Worth one or two.

08/16/12 On Tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. A tad bitter, but not a distraction. Full bodied & bready on the tongue w/some herb/spice in the aroma. Solid character but a bit weighty for a session, Definitely worth a place at the table.

Pale clear golden color looks like a macro light bit tasting reveals some substance, especially worth the substantial herbal/Grassy hop load.
Near medium body.
A light but hop forward German pils.

For a pilsner, you can't get much better than this. Full bodied mouth feel, touch of cream but crisp, clean finish. Don't have to wait for a hot day to drink. Solid on its own but great with food.
