A hazy light amber brew (or dark straw), a white high firm head.

Smelling of tea, earl grey, honey and hay.

Tasting of sweet honey bread, tea and bitter Bergamot oil.

Medium high carbonation, soft texture with small foamy bubbles, a light dry finish.

A really nice sessionable brew.

I'm not the biggest fan of Pilsner beers, but this was a pleasant surprise.

Bottle poured into weizen. Two finger off-white head; heavy carbonation

Smells: grain, hop, and wet cereal

Taste: Dry, grainy, and toasty

Mouthfeel: perfect, not too watery.

Best pilsner I've had, alongside Czechvar.
