a really perfectly executed pils from these guys, way better than the helles i believe it is replacing in the market, and one they should plan to roll with until the end of time, its about as masterful as the style gets, especially for a domestic brewer. where some might think its boring, i think its just clean and really well refined, minimal in the right ways, and i know for these guys it had to be hard to resist the urge to hop the heck out of it, but its smart of have held back, as this is a beer just about everyone should love, especially in the hot summer weather. perfectly clear, as it should be, with a short lived white head. aroma is simple and clean, noble hops, fresh pils malt, and a crispness from the minerals in the water and a tidy lager fermentation, patient and almost smells cold to me, if there is such a thing. the flavor is impeccable, very refined, and progressing nicely from very light barley malt to a basic and fresh lager yeast to finally a little bit of earthy noble hops, the proportions are on point here, and the light body, high carbonation, and total dryness make this about as drinkable a craft beer as you are going to find. i really was impressed with this, on draft and incredibly fresh, nothing really unique about the flavor or anything, its just such a great example of the style. glad to see the shift toward american breweries producing lagers, this is one of the best in its field right now. so glad this exists!
