Light gold body with a thick, rocky, white head; clinging lumps of foam adhering to the glass. Fresh hop aroma; grassy with yeast and light malt notes. Light cereal grain flavor with an excellent balance of hop bitterness. Medium-light body; clean and crisp.

A truly fine example of a classic German lager style. Everything comes together nicely and creates a very enjoyable, thoroughly satisfying pilsner package.

Typical German pilsener look: pale and golden with a big fluffy head.
Spicy and herbal hops on the nose with some crackery malt. Very nice.
Spicy grassy flavor upfront with some soft bready flavors and sweetness in the middle before and nice snappy bitterness that leaves a hoppy aftertaste.
Very nice and as with all good pilseners you can really put them away quickly. Very balanced level of bitterness: not over the top and not understated.
Great pils with some enjoyable fresh hop qualities.
