The latest corny on my home system, picked up at the brewery over the weekend. This is the second batch of pilsener brewed, which used hallertauer hops and a single pilsener malt. Pours a light golden color, almost white, with a very slight haziness. A large, foamy head with nice structure that leaves some pretty lacing on the glass.
Aroma is primarily citrusy hops and light, bready malt, not unlike buttered toast. A hint of peach and just a touch of astringency are detectable. Palate is well-balanced, with sweet, bready malt and tangy, bitter, citrusy hops. Lively carbonation on the swallow yields to a nice, mellow bitterness that lingers for a little while. A greatly refreshing summer brew, I could drink this all day long.

The forum love this beer gets is a little played out, but I do enjoy a well crafted pils and this definitely fits the bill. Clean, light and a zippy hop profile make this an attractive option in the hoppy-pils sub-category. They should probably bottle this.

Poured from tap. Pristine and clear straw color with a small head.

Balanced with clear aromas of grains, citrus and some crackers. Lacking some "pop" to it, but very correct

Nice crisp and light feel. Balanced with fresh notes of grains, noble hops, and a touch of citrus.

A quality pilsner. Nice and crisp with everything being in the right place.

Pint at "b2" taphouse in Salem. $3.00 Simple yellow lager beer with a largish frothy purest white head. Good fresh grassy hop aromas, malt is caramel,bready,nutty Taste is very refreshing zingy,grassy,fruity hop predominates..very light tasing but far from boring . Good palate for the style went down well enough. Good simple lager would have been even better in high summer.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.

Pale, golden yellow with a thick, foamy white head, nice lacing.

Grassy, lightly floral, with a crackery malt backbone.

Medium bodied with a crisp, clean finish.

A very nice, easy drinking pilsner. Nothing particularly outstanding, but just very well done overall.

On tap at Grain & Gristle in a shaker pint. Light hazy gold capped with 2 fingers of fairly tenacious white foam. Good lacing.

Smells largely of baking bread and spicy hops with some light honeyish sweetness. It's a little sweeter and fruitier than I anticpated, but the power of the hops won't be denied. Scathingly bitter with a load of spicy noble hop goodness. Seriously and impressively hoppy with a drying finish. An easy recommendation here.
