Notes / Commercial Description:
The first flagship beer in the Holy City arsenal is our version of a traditional Bohemian-style Pilsner, with significantly amped-up hops, imparting a wonderfully sharp bite to what’s already a dry, crisp affair. This beer will quench your thirst and please your palate all in one glass…but we bet you’ll want a second.

Draft at The Rarebit.
Hazy gold pint with racing carb streams, compact layer of white foam and flecks of spotty lacing dotting the glass. Mild grassy hop aroma, mild crackery malt and lager yeast. Fairly nondescript with a clean profile. Taste is dry with a light grassiness and mild crackery malt. Light and crisp feel, slight astringency. Overall this was nice and drinkable, paired well with chicken & waffles.

I don't know why this only had a score of 80... By far the best American pilsner I have ever had, not malty like Oskar Blues Mamas Little Yellow Pils but nice and crisp like a Czech pilsner!

They bet me I would want another, well they are mistaken. Not that it is terrible, but it is not a good pilsner. Has a saltine like taste and feel and dries out the palate too quickly. The smell has some nice slight lemon so that's neat
