Notes/Commercial Description:
A European-style pilsner. Dry hopping produces a bouquet of aromas from the addition of traditional noble hops. This beer has a bigger malt profile than the average American Pilsner. It has medium hop bitterness and a clean floral finish.

Gold with a thin skim head. Didn't arrive with much foam at all so I blame the bartender/server, not the beer.

Aroma is sweet malt with a little swampy hop. Missing the peppery Saaz I was hoping for.

Smoother than I though it would be (I was expecting more crispness) but it works well just the same. Slightly spice add zest to an otherwise inoffensive malt character.

A nice beer to wash down Chocorua, Middle Sister and First Sister summits.

Had this mid-October, told it was distinct from their Golden Dog Pilsner. It was a pretty, clear yellow, with a small head and some lacing. It had a fresh grass aroma, as well as a little grain. Taste was a little underwhelming. A little sweet, a little malt, a little hops. Still, a refreshing beer for a guy who'd been in a car for a while.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Sampled at the Moat Mountain pub on October 9, 2012.

It pours a kind of olive-yellow with a thin, fizzy white head that dissolves fast. It looks like it should.

The aroma is rather in-distinctive with an emphasis on grains and a somewhat clean, crisp hop note mixed in.

The body fell into the light to medium range with a smooth, creamy texture.

The taste was similarly grainy like the nose but it tasted fresh. The low hop bitterness balanced things out pretty good at the end. Overall, typical for the style.

On tap in a sample glass.

Appearance: Yellowish gold color with a thin white head.

Smell: Sweet smelling malts, corn and hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light bodied and very smooth. Tasted sweeter with a bitter sweet aftertaste.

Overall: Decent brew, it was refreshing, but nothing special.

On tap at the source 8/25/2012.
Comes to the table a light golden straw color without much of a head by the time the waitress sets the glass down. Smells of floral and spicy hops with a fair amount of bready pilsner malt to back it up. There's a hint of lemony tartness that while faint just seems out of place in the aroma. The flavor is bready and sweet pilsner malt that gets blasted with spicy hops. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spicy mouthfeel. Nice pilsner not the best I've ever had but definitely quaffable.
