12 ouncer into DFH shaped pint. Thanks, Chris!

A: Pours a darker than expected clear copper color with three fingers of off-white head that faded into a thick film. Decent lace.
S: Dominant notes of lager yeast, clean grains, and spicy, peppery hops. Bready and crisp smelling.
T: Bready like the nose with grainy malt flavors and clean flavors of peppery hops. The finish is a touch on the sweet side and has a hint of caramel and honey.
M: Crisp light bodied with a smooth and clean mouthfeel. Carbonation is ample and bubbly.
O: Easy to drink but a little bit sweeter than my favorites. A great drinking beer though, thanks again Chris.

golden hay color with a huge head of nearly three inches that never seems to let itself go down coating the sides with some nice lacing and tons of carbonation. Aroma is light grains, bready notes, hints of l;ight clove maybe and a touch of some earthy grass notes. Nothing crazy but it does the job. Very light and clean flavor, crisp, refreshing nothing out the ordinary in any way. Was easy to throw down with a clean and refreshing aftertast

Updated Review - 3-28-12
I have had several bottles of this since my original review and I realize that the original review does not reflect my current perceptions of the beer. No idea why there is a change, but there is, and I did this beer a whole lot more now.

A. Darker than I remember. Creamy head and foam. Seems a little less pils like IN APPEARANCE ONLY than I recall.

S: German pils malt, so distinct. Is this the floor malting effect? And hops clearly evident in aroma. I get a slight licorice smell at the back of the whiff (if whiff's have backs).

T: Toasty sweet maltiness. Tingly, balancingly bitter finish.

I have changed my mind about this beer. They set the bar high for themselves, and they delivered. I don't know why my first experience seemed so minerally and apply, but since then, I have had this beer at least 5 different times (including 1x at the brewery) and I am endeared to it.

Old Review:
Orange gold, with a white head that dissapears sort of quickly, leaving laces on the glass.

Strong malt accompanied by a little bit of fruitiness, maybe apple, and a faint whiff of sulfur that is slightly reminiscent of skunked European lagers such as Becks, despite the fact that NG has a brown bottle. It's not off-putting, but a little surprising as this seems like a flaw.

Sweet malty flavor, with slight tart apple and mineral presence to the finish.

This is a likeable beer, but I think NG sets a high bar and I'm not sure they quite reached it with this one.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Thanks to storminspank for this.

A: Medium copper color with great clarity. One finger white head with ok retention and some lacing.

S: Very grainy. Lots of malts. Some corn and yeast.

T: Again, very grainy and malty. Some big lemon notes. Corn and yeast.

M: Light body. Medium high carbonation. Crisp. Slightly dry.

O: It's alright. Not a style I like. There's nothing bad or off about it.

Pours light copper with a two finger white foam head which does not last very long. Smells of cooked corn, yeast, grain, and hops. Smells slightly sour which is off putting.

The taste has corn, yeast, grain, and is somewhat sour. The sourness is not as bad as from the smell, but is still unwelcome.

Light bodied, high carbonation, has a sour aftertaste. Not much to my liking. too sour, and the yeast smell and taste are a bit too strong. I will pass on this in the future.
