Not a fan of the style, but surprisingly enjoyable. Love the hop character.

Pours bright, clear yellow with tiny-bubbled carbonation forming a lasting, creamy, white head. Lacing sticks down the glass.

The smell is of lemon, hay, and floral hops.

The taste of lemon and grass/hay. The soft but flavorful hops blend with the smooth, grainy malt. Sweet backbone complemented by a dry kiss in the finish. Very crisp and refreshing. Carbonation level fits it wonderfully.

A very well-done, true-to-style German-style pils. Very enjoyable and easy-to-drink!

Pours a nice clear gold, finger and a half of nice loose head

Smell is a nice pop of grain, bread, biscut, lemon, nice noble hop presence here

Taste is crisp, lemon, biscuit, grainy malt, nice lager clean yeast, a bit of mint, bread

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, really nice finishes clean

WOW I love this beer I have always looked forward to the release of this this is the 2nd or 3rd release I have had and man this always lets me know what a American brewery can do with a Pilsner!
