Notes/Commercial Description:
Pure and crisp this is a beer with nothing to hide. Wisconsin two-row barley malt ensures a mellow and smooth body. We imported Noble Hop varieties from Germany and the Czech Republic to ensure a fine mature aroma with no coarse bitterness.

This one is from memory. Pours a shiny, yellow, inviting and purest and cleanest looking brew I've had for some time. Smells like beer and not much else. The nose didn't invite further investigation, but to respect the style I went for it anyway, despite that I new the hops would be hard to find. Taste is beer, just as it was billed...totally naked, up front, refreshing, and not at all complex. That's it. Mouthfeel was smooth, light and a bit dry. Overall a fine, straight up approach to brewing, but really not what I'm looking in a craft beer...even in light of my strong respect of NG beers. Goes fast! I'd buy something other than this when turning to NG. (And it still deserves respect...and should be noted that my mum-in-law, who isn't a regular beer drinker, really did appreciate the approach...so for someone with a bit of fear of the bitter bombs out there, this one might just be grand).

Poured into a pils glass.

4.0 A: Clear faint yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average and a good amount of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Sweet grassiness and a little corny. Light neutral maltiness and grassy hops. Super clean.

3.5 T: Taste is better and more refined than the nose, but not enough for a score boost. Grassy hoppiness with hay, light neutral sweetness, faint bitterness. Simple and pleasant.

4.0 M: Light body. Clean and crisp with good moderate carbonation. No issues here.

4.0 D: Taste was borderline 4.0, so I made it up a bit here. Solid all around and super easy to drink.
