A very nice snappy pilsner. "Crisp" is an excellent description of this brew. Great super cold and goes well while sipping a brandy or bourbon on the side. Highly recommend.

Was in the mood for a pilsner and noticed I hadn't tried this one yet. Crystal clear golden color with abundant carbonation. I didn't get much of a head and only got minimal residual lacing. A little more citrus on the nose than I was expecting. Taste also has a bit more of a citrus note than I was expecting, but it mixes well with those traditional Noble hop flavors. Overall, a really solid pilsner that I would seek out again.

This has been my favorite go-to everyday beer for a long time.
Just don't get tired of it.
Reminds me of beer-garden beer in Bavaria.

Clear gold , orange color. Close to a medium body, with about medium carbonation which adds up to a nice feel .
Aroma was floral hops, cereal, grain, yeast, and some malt.
Taste was similar to aroma. Was more bitter than the aroma hinted at but excessive and there was malt to balance it out. Was a little dry, bitter, but very flavorful and easy to have more than one.
This would have made a great summertime beer but could easily be enjoyed year round

Pours out a medium clear gold color. The head is off-white and dense with awesome retention. There is a good amount of sticky lacing to boot.

The floral with a hint of citrus and grains. Smells great. Its easy to pick out each individual quality without having to dig to much. Also very aromatic.

The taste bitter floral and citrus. Sweet citrus notes. Grains come through nicely. Everything meshes well together.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Carbonation is summer time like.

A: Dark yellow, good head with thick and lasting lace.
S: Light fruit, but full and appetizing
M: Candy like sweet. Telltale dryness in the swallow
T: Pilsner with a kick. Solid hops with Pilsner dryness with a rear end of alcohol that sometimes makes a Pils lose some of it's impression. Not this one. Very tasty stuff. I'm not a huge Pils fan, but when I get one that is crafted like this, I'm a repeat buyer.

On tap at the ginger man, nyc.

Aroma...strong citrus, grapefruit pineapple..like a sea breeze. Some ether.
Appearance....yellow, clear, smallish white head.
Taste...sharp acidic citrus, tart and a little refreshing.
Feel...light, crisp...medium carb.

Not bad, good summer beer. Some good qualities, but not the whole package.
