On tap at the downtown brewpub. Neutral aroma, light coloured but noticeably lacey. A decent drinker, with a mild bitterness and mineralness as denoted by 13 IBU. Average mouthfeel. Suitable carbonation.Serviceable sessionable, at 5.4% abv.In a word, unoffensive.

Sampled 10/9/2010 at the brewpub.

Pours dark yellow, clear, small white head, small amount of lacing, and not much retention.

Aroma is lemon, urine, malt, and grass.

Flavor is grass, earthiness, corn, pee, and bitterness. Not great by any means but on par for the style. Lots of CO2.

Body is light/medium. Drinkable.

In a shaker pint.

Bright gold body, this pils has a ring of bone white foam.

The scents are light and unobtrusive, lemon, cracker, pepper.

I am surprised by the earthiness that hits me in this pilsner. I was expecting a more crisp profile of flavors. It slowly gives way to a little bit of lemon, grass, and a subtle cereal finish. Again, they are not bold and in your face flavors, fairly light.

I really like the feel. I am so used to pilsners being very carbonated, whereas this one is smooth and floats over the tongue.

This beer is supremely quaffable and will not raise eyebrows in a good or bad way, just a case of good beer doing good things.
