On tap at Bistro Menil, poured into a nonic pint glass. Crystal clear, bright gold yellow with a frothy white head. Crisp, grassy, slight citrus and spicy hops along with light malt in both nose and flavor. Moderate body and carbonation. Clean, dry and pleasantly bitter finish. Drinkable, refreshing and nicely balanced.

This is an average beer. Inoffensive but undifferentiated.

Pale gold in color, with a bright white cap of foam.
Aroma-Pale malt,fruity with a spicy hop note
Taste-Spicy hops, floral, crisp and sessionable. Would make a great beer to have at the ballpark.

i'm partial ti pilsners, and this is a decent one. It holds its head for a decent length of time. It has a peasant hoppy smell and the taste is not overpowering. The feel is fairly full bodied. Overall, this is a decent pilsner. Apparently it is now retired; I hope SN will bring it back.
