I wish more American breweries made beer like this. It seems the the style is somewhat underappreciated around these parts. So maybe from now on I will only put in reviews for lager I feel are overlooked? A great was the show my displeasure with the shunning of such wonderful beers!

The beer is golden. Smells of grassy hops. Tastes like a pilsner. Feels like a pilsner. I could drink it all day.

This is one of THE best American pils I've ever had. You could not taste the difference between this beer and most German pils blind. No way.

Standard pilsener hue under clingy foam fingers. Aromas of grass, dandelions and fresh donuts. Just a perfectly balanced malt and hop concoction so ultimately drinkable I wish I had a case of cases in the basement. Rivals the best out of Duetschland.
