Thin head on a clear, golden colored body. A few bubbles coming up and good lacing.
It has a faint lemon smell.
The taste is moderate bitterness throughout with a sweet finish. Nice profile.
Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
A tasty lager and good too.

Got a growler from the Alehouse. (day after purchase)

A: Crystal clear, straw colored. large head, roughly 2 fingers but i poured very aggressively
S: light bready, faint hops. i almost get a kinda sweet white wine grape smell.
T: super smooth, bready/malty flavor, some bitterness to balance. Has a sweet taste at the front and goes into the hop flavors that are kinda grassy, at the end you can taste the lager yeast flavor. Really a good pilsner.that i think the best descriptor is smooth and crisp.
M: could be a more carbonated, but im not sure they got a good seal on the growler
O: Outstanding pilsner (won a gold medal at GABF). Its so smooth, crisp, and refreshing i could drink this all day

From notes 11/4/2010. Tap, City Beer Store. Solid pilsner. Appearance is light gold, transparent. Nice white head. Aroma has a great blend of grassy hops and lager yeastiness. The grain note is fresh and tasty. Doesn’t go overboard with the hops. Dry, refreshing flavor. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. I support any craft brewery making a serious stab at a lager.

What you would expect with the clear yellow and highly carbonated white head for appearance. Smells a bit earthy and of spicy hops, with just a hint a of sweet malt. Taste follows, but a little less sweet than expecting or hoping for, and feels very carbonated. Refreshing and overall a good American style Pilsner. Cheers!
