A-Slightly hazy orange tinged golden yellow with a medium white head. Good head retention leaves behind nice lace.

S-Bready, spicy nose with hints of apple and pear.

T-Wow! Sharp, spicy hops in the forefront with a healthy load of biscuit malt supporting the brew. Subtle notes of apple, pear and white grape in the finish.

M-Medium-light body with an absurd crispness. This beer is the epitome of clean and crisp!

D-Really nice. Light enough to pound but hoppy enough to please. A totally solid session German Pils!

Growler pour on 9/6/08. Thanks to brewslut for picking this up for me over the weekend.

A - Slightly hazy golden body with amber highlights and an immense two-finger foamy white head that settled into a quarter inch ring of retention and left a bit of lacing around the glass. Very minimal carbonation.

S - Pretty heavy on the grassy hops and citrus rind with a biscuity malt base and a slight tinge of alcohol. There are also underlying fruity notes with a bit of vanilla.

T - Matches the aroma with a hefty dose of grassy hop bitterness complimented with a citrus rind character. Malt is primarily bready and biscuity, but takes a backseat to the hops, which are quite aggressive for a pilsner. There is also underlying hints of lemon and grapes.

M - Medium body that's quite creamy for a pilsner. Softly carbonated with a slightly oily mouthfeel overall. Finish is quite dry with a lingering bitterness on the tongue.

D - This drinks like an imperial pilsner and packs quite a hoppy punch. Bitterness is pretty assertive. While it wasn't exactly what I was expecting, it was still very well done, and I had no doubt that it would be fresh and tasty. Afer all, it is a Selin's Grove brew!

This beer was a deep dark glowing gold with a light haze to it. I had this outside at the brew pub, so the natural light probably helped out with bringing out the colors potential. The head was an irregular frothy white film.

Smells of peaches and honey with a crisp snap of pils hops. This is nestled on a pasty white flour and golden raisins. What an amazing blend.

The taste starts out with a wild flowers, birch bark and pine that is dry and woody on the tip of my tongue. It then picks up some white flour and fresh, light grain. There's also a light and airy astringent element in the background. The sophistication of the balance here is again impressive.

Feels big but silky smooth with light nips of carbonation. I've never had a pilsener that walked the line between density, smoothness and carbonation like this one has.

This one's one for the record books.
