4.5/5  rDev +12.8%

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!

Pours bright golden almost yellow in color with a one finger white head that has decent retention.

Smell has some slight lemon grass and herbal hop aroma forward with light hints of light grainy very crisp bright yeasty aroma in the end.

Lots of fresh hop flavors are forward with a nice balance of light herbal and lemon rind. Yeast follows with a really clean crisp flavor. Malt comes in at the end with some bready lightly grainy flavors. Incredibly balanced.

Mouthfeel is crisp refreshing and light. A fair amount of hop oils and resin balance the body.

A- Clear straw yellow body, two finger white head with great lacing. Looks incredibly refreshing, especially when waiting outside for Wild Peach to be poured...

S- Clean grainy pale malt, earthy lager yeast. Not complex, but it's very well executed.

F- Very refreshing grainy pale malt, lager yeast, plenty of noble hops.

M- Smooth, medium in body, substantial with good carbonation. Noble earthy hops on the finish.

O- This is well done and I'm happy to be a Wisconsin resident for easy access to beers like this.
