On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head that leaves solid lacing.

Smells of crisp pilsner malts with clean lager yeast and hints of breadiness and leafy hops. Also present are very slight amounts of sourdough bread.

Tastes similar to how it smells, though better-balanced. Smooth pilsner malts up front are joined quickly by robust and slightly sour bready flavors. Midway through crisp leafy hops clean things up a bit, carrying through to a moderately bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth carbonation.

Overall this was a very good beer for the style with everything working just right. Well worth a shot.

3.79/5  rDev 0%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Considerably hazy, very dark golden body with a 1/5-inch-high white head.

Smell: Slightly grainy-hinted Pilsner malts with a gentle note of crusty bread. Then, in comes a low but unyielding floral, herbal note with a light backing of dried lemon rind.

Taste: Pale, pils German-born maltiness with a scant graininess and bready character to it. Very low hint of honey with an equally light sweetness imparted. Touch of lemon with some firm leafy aspects as the moderate bitterness arrives. Drying, bitterish finish with a last minute pop of lemongrass.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's certainly not the brightest, clearest looking lager around, but it is tasty.
