Almost my favorite beer ever, combined with maybe the most appetizing job of graphics, color and type ever.

Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a dirty white head. Aroma is founded with the yeast, paired with some crackery maltiness, and some hoppiness offering lots of floral and some lemon peal. Flavor follows suit. A creamy, active, thin to medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is pretty much spot on what I want from a session beer. Perfect beer to enjoy in the throws of a hot, sunny New Mexican summer.

Poured a cloudy golden color with abundant carbonation bubbles with two fingers of fluffy white head that receded to a fluffy white cap leaving abundant lacing down the glass. Scents of floral German hops, Graham cracker-like pilsner malt, notes of bready yeastiness and a slight undertone of sulfur. A well executed, very true to style aroma. Taste begins medium-dry with notes of floral, moderately bitter German hops. A faint hint of pilsner malt sweetness is in the background, low-level. Floral hop flavors grow more intense with a high level of hop flavor in the middle and finish with a present, low-level of pilsner malt sweetness. Finish and aftertaste are dry with a floral German hop character. A crisp, refreshing, dry and very true to style flavor profile. Excellently done. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a crisp, drying feel. Again, very true to style and quite easy to drink. Overall this is an excellent German pilsner. It is entirely true to style in every respect and is quite refreshing to drink.

A: Brilliantly clear yellow, foamy white head, excellent retention and lacing. Bubbles slowly dance to the surface the entire time.

A: Smells of freshly cut grass, hay, lemon, and sweet bread.

T: Wow. All of those aromas wrapped together with a little twist of lime and even hints of blueberry.

F: Wonderfully light, crisp, and clean just as a pilsner should be. Well balanced but just flirting on the bitter side of the spectrum.

O: Well worth the wait. This is a fine pilsner and decorated appropriately. Familiar and respectful to the traditions with a wonderful American modern signature. Will definitely be buying again. Cheers!

Appearance: Pours just slightly hazy, the liquid a goldenstraw color; the head builds to a finger or so with spotty lacing

Smell: Floral and grassy hops, with Graham cracker and bready undertones and a hint of sulfur

Taste: Floral and grassy, with a Germanic edge; the sulfur builds, through the middle; underneath, there is a bready character with a hint of Graham cracker sweetness; the finish is dry, sulfuric and grassy

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a crisp finish

Overall: This award winning pilsner showcases the range of this excellent brewery; a bit under the radar but I have never been disappointed by them

Thanks, M_chav, for the opportunity

This is easily crushable - nice balance of just enough drying hops to keep it crisp and dry on the finish. Overall a great go to beer for your fridge, especially for warm weather parties.

L: Pours a very light straw gold color with a small fizzy head and no lacing on the glass.

S: Baked bread and sweet cereal grains, with a light note of floral hops. Pretty much what you expect from a pilsner.

T: Baked bread, almost a little wheat, some sweet cereal grains, and nice floral hop at the end, a light to medium hop bitterness at the end.

F: Light, crisp, clean and easy drinking

O: A very well brewed pilsner, not world class but nice and easy drinking.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pilsner-style glass.

This pilsner has a light golden color and is nearly transparent. The head on the pour is light and fluffy and has good persistence. There is a lot of lacing along the sides of the glass and after each sip.

The smell is mildly sweet, mild floral hops, and subtle, pungent bitterness.

The beer starts off tasting bitter and floral before finishing with a dry, malty sweetness that reminds me of honey.

Overall, the beer is smooth, crisp, balances the bitter aspects with some good sweetness and is very easy-drinking. This beer is a good representation of a pilsner and I recommend it to all visiting New Mexico.

Can from Tin Bucket. Stoked to finally get to try beers from these newer, highly regarded New Mexican brewers. 03/26/2015 is stamped on the can, I'm guessing that's when it was canned.

Strangely light in carbonation, this beer is straw yellow with a thin, white head that falls off quickly. The nose is solid. Bright, snappy, lemony and mildly herbal, this is crisp and refreshing. A faint pils malt character is present. Noticeably hoppy with a pleasing lemony punch, this smells great. The palate opens with a noticeable hop snap, mild mint, plenty of lemon, some lemon oil, hop resin and a touch of dough. The lack of carbonation emphasizes a mildly soapy hop flavor. Drying, bitter and with plenty of lemon on the finish, this is crisp and refreshing. The low carbonation is a touch disappointing, but this is a solid beer.
