I had this one on tap at the Lombard (Yorktown) Rock Bottom, served in a tall pilsener glass.

A= This was a darker golden color with a 3/4 inch pure snow white head. I was impressed both by the initial head and by how long that head lasted. The lacing down the glass was also incredible.

A= The aromas of this brew were simply amazing! I am an ale guy by nature, and usually find the aromas of a pilsener or lager to be weak, but this is one seriously aromatic beer! Of course the Saaz hops are in front with a peppery/spicy tinge that hits the nose hard followed by bready and doughy malts.

T= Like a fine ale, the taste follows the nose with this one. There was a leading flavor of saaz hops followed by bakery malts which hold everything together. There was also a fantastic clean, peppery flavor that danced thoughout the start and middle of each sip. The finish was all Saaz hop dryness. The aftertaste was delicious and left me wanting more.

MF= The feel of this one was light-medium bodied. The carbonation was medium high and perfect.

D= This beer was incredibly drinkable. If pints of this were available commercially it might change my attitude toward non-ale beers. My old favorite pils was P-U, now it is this one by far!!!
