I like this beer- to me it's the ultimate American pilsner; light, crisp, and perfect for a hot day in Buellton. And believe me, there are some HOT days here.

That is an excellent pils. A little cloudy, giving me pause prior to the first whiff/sip, but the nose is grainy pils malt all over, dashes of lager yeast and light noble hop touch. Palate it just so well balanced between the malt, yeast, and hops, a bit of herbal/zesty goodness there and just so.much.pils.malt. Love it.

Pours a medium clear amber with a nice white head that quickly fades. Loses the head fast and then appears very light and more yellow with orange tint.

Nose is full on Belgian yeast and cooked bananas with that wonderful "carnuba wax" ester smell. Tortilla and corn nose as it sits in glass.

Mouthfeel is lovely in balance, brightness and carbonation.

Flavor profile is yeasty fresh white bread; soda cracker and green pepper/celery and salt bitter. Flavors are all integrated and well balanced.

Finish is bitter pine that is long lasting and pleasant.

All in all a very nice, well rounded and inviting drink. A "go to" with food.

A: Pours a beautiful clear straw color. The head is bright white and clings to the glass well. Bubbles make for an inviting brew.

S: The aroma is fruity, bready, with a good "skunk" note common in Czech Pilsners.

T: The flavor is great. Nice bitterness up front rounded by sweetness with a dry finish.

M: Crisp yet fulfilling this one nails it. Good C02 level.

O: A great Pils coming from the Santa Ynez Valley.
