Solid Pilsner, maybe just a little hoppier than some, but overall very good. Cool new label art also, The beer pours fairly clear with good carbonation. It maintains a nice white head and leaves a fine lacing. The smell and flavor are both excellent, it has a grassy and grainy smell and the taste follows, but with an initial hit of spicy noble hops. It is smooth and easy drinking, very session-able and good with food. Enjoyable and moreish.
