Excellent craft American pilsner. Light, lemony, perfectly balanced, and uber drinkable. I find a beer of this sort
more enjoyable than the craze of session IPAs out there, and I am a devoted hophead....

A: Sunshine in a glass: pale yellow color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace. A bit sudsier than other pilsners. 3.3

S: Pilsner aroma of light malts and bright, grassy hops. Kind of plain. 3.3

T: Taste is bready w light flavors of malty grain, layers w hop bitterness. The after-taste is slightly soapy, bready and slightly bitter. 3.3

M: Smooth and very crisp, light-to-medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is too sudsy/soapy for me. 3

OK at best, odd soapy quality. Like my pilsners razor clean.

A- Hazy Yellow with a nice effervesence.
S- slightly floral
T- rich and smooth, very bright and crisp flavor. Perfect back porch beer.
P- Pairs best with a bleak, violent, desaturated atmosphere like Takashi Miike's OldBoy. Contrasts Dae-Suh's hopelessness nicely.

This is one of my favorites. Neck and neck with many Czech pils.
