Perfect third beer of the night. Poured from the bottle into pint glass. Crisp lager as advertised.

From the 12 oz can in a snifter. This rather nice pils pours a pale golden
color with a nice head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin light pool,
and shows some nice light lacing. Nose of moderate grain notes with honey malts
and subtle herbal hops. Flavors exceed the nose by balanced presentation of light
grain and light breaded malts mingling nicely with a crisp and smooth hop flavor
that is not brash but balanced with light herbal overtones. Nice mouth feel; light body,
medium carbonation, and a crisp finish.

Everything one wants after a hot day. Beats most of the more common
offerings from the bigger macro guys out there.

Cheers

Not bad for a summer beer. It's better when its ice cold. Definitely crisp and refreshing.
