Bottled 8/29/17 consumed 9/21/17.

L - Poured into a slender pint glass. Yields a finger and a half of white finely bubbly head over a golden blonde clear body.
S - Smells slightly grassy, hints of floral and the slightest delicate citrus from the hops. Sweet graham crackery pils malt, very clean.
T and F - Slighty banana-y, grassy, herbal flavor followed by biscuity, nutty malts. Super clean delicate yeast. Finished medium dry - feels a bit heavier than european pilsners.

O - This is an elegant and very enjoyable brew. It's aroma, flavor, and feel makes for a great all day beer and pairs with any food. Great American pilsner and despite the slight fruitiness on the nose and palate, true to the style.

Pours a light straw color

Aroma is of light citrus, pale malt, and straw

Taste is light and citrusy. A little blueberry character. Inoffensive. It gets a 81/100. Paired well with coconut crusted salmon with Thai chili sauce.
