Pours a clear pale golden straw producing 2 fingers of billowy shaving cream like, moderately lasting, white head that diminishes to islands of dense foam & webby, streaky lacing. Aroma is classic pilsner, crisp & dry, biscuit, cracker, clean bready grain, lemon & grassy hops. Taste is Pilsner yeast, cracker/biscuit malt, lemony, grassy noble hops, peppery finish with a heavy & lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation, crisp, clean & dry with a nice peppery prickle. Very pleasant & drinkable, but somewhat like Great Divide's Nomad it is an overly bitter example of the style. But what the hell, I crave the bitterness of this fine brew.

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate amounts of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering about 75% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Just shy of moderate aromas of bready malts with light aromas of spicy, floral, and citrus/grapefruit zest hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of bready malts with a hint of grainy malts. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of spicy, floral, and citrus/grapefruit zest hops which imparts a light amount of bitterness which does not linger at all.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O: Easy to drink, clean, and refreshing. Alcohol is well hidden. Nice beer for a warm spring evening and would go with just about anything for dinner.

Bought a six pack while in North Carolina recently and shared two with a friend, wished I was selfish. I will buy this beer again if I see it in Virginia.

Poured on-tap at the Tap House and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, pale gold coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of lemon grass, floral highlights, and tangy hops. Flavor is roast forward, with tangy and resinous hops in the backbone. Light and filmy, with a citrus build into a lemongrass and slightly peppered aftertaste. Thin, clear finish. Refreshing, easy drinker.

poured from tap into a standard pint glass.

A: a pale golden color, one finger white head with good lacing, clear

S: good mix of malt and spicy aromas.

T: the malt dominates at first, with a subtle hop bitterness and spiciness that kicks in from the Saaz hops. the hop bitterness doesn't linger, combined with the malt complexity, taunts you to drink some more. clean finish.

MF: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: very enjoyable beer. definitely would get this beer again.
