Pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Head is a bout a finger and a half and lacing is nice and slow. Aroma is of a fine pilsner. Taste has a nice amount of hops balanced with a touch of lemon and citrus. Bitterness balances well and presents a very nice, top of the line pilsner....

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice malt and hop aroma
Appearance- pours a slightly murky light yellow color with a medium sized white head.
Taste- A well blended malt and hop flavor, this is a very good tasting pilsner.
Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a lively texture on the tongue.
Overall- A really good beer that I highly recommend.

Poured a slightly cloudy deep gold. The foamy white head has good retention and lasts well into the beer. A decent amount of lacing comes with it. Mild biscuit aroma and the taste adds just a hint of grassy hops.
