Citra hops add a touch of kick to the flavor, but there's nothing too far above average here. That said, it's crisp, refreshing, and a bit less bland than many craft pilsners I've had.

On tap at Al’s. Pours a clear straw gold with a sudsy white head. Plenty of foamy lacing. The aroma smells of tight bitter citrus, with more herbal and tropical flavors coming in off the sides. The taste has a crisp grassy bitterness with softer herbal tones on the edges, a tight bready backbone and then sweeter tropical fruit character that comes out across the back. Finish is dry and bitter. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a clean, crisp and overall very drinkable feel. This was tasty Pils, with those Citra hops giving this a juicy character that thankfully never got overly sweet. This was crisp and drinkable all the way.
