Gorgeous deep soft sweet doughy nose in the bottle to start. Poured, it has a very pale ginger ale like sparkle to the eye. A number of swirly wirly beading tornadoes throughout supporting a big rocky pure white glossy head. Frothy lacing webbed around the glass as well.
Soft then firm dry clean taste with a slightly herbally long bitter finish. Structurally this lifts up everything effortlessly yet is so supple and lean at the same time.
The brewer's skill is just stunning. No special barrels, no bucket loads of exotic ingredients or hops and no double digit ABV. Just simple and easy to appreciate but with more susbtance than you'd find in all the craft beer pilsner wannabes stacked together. Love it. Everything a world class pilsner should be and more.
