On tap at Brewskival 2018.

Pours a fairly clear yellow with fine, wispy foam.

Smell is clean and bready with plenty of floral hops, but not as overpowering as American pilsners can get.

Taste is nice and crisp, with a sweet and robust malt base. On top of that hovers a nice, balanced bitterness, and floral hops. But agan, it's more traditional than most Americans, and that's good!

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, slighlty creamy, and well carbonated.

Overall, a very good pilsner, clean and crisp.

Poured probably too aggressively from a big ol can, clear golden color with a big 2 and a half finger fluffy white head that slowly receded down to a nice cap which has stuck around more or less. Nose picks up a touch of hops and biscuit-y malts, hints of floral notes creep in as well. Taste follows with more hops than I expected, which is not a complaint at all. Super light and refreshing feel, a beer that almost requires you to have two.

Gold in color with excellent clarity. There’s a fingernail of dishwater white on top. The aroma is of grassy German hops, well water, and light malt. The taste is spot on for a Czech pilsner. Grassy German hops and pale malt pair well. The mouth is light, crisp, and refreshing.

From a large can, this brew is a hazy gold color. Slim head and lots of haze . The aroma has a bit of sulfur, grain, and spicy hops. Grain and bread. Sweet, fresh baking bread taste. Light hop bitterness. Medium body. Okay,

Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a fine, one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of lightly grainy biscuit malt with a little fresh bread, hay and grassy hops, spot on pilsner. Flavor is also whole grain biscuit malt with an unusual fresh bread crust component, dried hay and grassy hops with that nice bready biscuit flavor lingering. Very nice creamy body, unexpected for this style. Well, this is a style that I just don't have much any more, tending towards IPAs, but this was one of three cans from 2nd shift that arrived (briefly) on the Seattle market, and I'm really glad I tried it. This has one of the best and flavorful pilsner malts I can remember and with the nice creamy body, this is very enjoyable. Not sure if this is the most authentic pils I've had, but definitely one of the ones I've enjoyed the most. Quite nice, I really like this.

Poured out a clear, straw-yellow color with a two-finger head of bubbly foam. It smelled of grains and some sweet floral notes. Nice spiciness up front with some sweet caramel and bready malt.
