The style is a Bohemian pilsener made with Italian malted barley and saaz hops.

Body is a hazy but transparent straw. Poured into a kolsch glass, it produced a half inch bubbly head. Dissipates to a cap and ring which is rejuvenated with each sip. Trace lacing.

Light aroma of light sweet malt, sweet corn, and green floral hops, with just a touch of spice.

Taste follows the nose, with sweet, biscuity malt and green floral hops presenting in the forward palate. Carbonation is fizzy and scrubs the palate clean. There is a bit of corn taste, indicative of DMS. The finish is dry and just slightly bitter.

Body is light and the carbonation is fizzy, giving this a refreshing mouthfeel. A little malt pastiness on the tongue.

A decent pilsener that is enjoyable enough to drink and is true to the style, but not too exciting. It is clean tasting and does not have any lingering off flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - this beer pours a hazy wheat color with 2 fingers of off white head that slowly fade leaving a t thick layer of bubbles over top of the glass. Carbonation seems very lively!

Aroma - floral/leafy hops a wheat zest some light fruit like apple and pear, some clove and light spice in the background also a little bready!

Taste - Very floraly up front followed by some light apple, clove and a some biscuit malt

Feel - Light but almost creamy at the same time moderate carbonation feeling.

Overall - Not a whole ton to say here, its a decent light summer beer but definitely not something I will buy again. Its not worth the premium!

Veiled straw color with moderate activity. Slightly creamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with moderate legs. Flavors of biscuit, caramel, lemon, belgian yeast, barley and sweet grains, noble hops and floral spices. Balanced sweetness and sharpness. Slick light body with crispy carbonation. Light finish with lingering caramel, citrus, and faint leafy hops. Good pilsener having a fresh zesty and bready feel, but faint on the hops. Well intensified and flavorful. Although it feels very thin and could be sharper. More like a cross between a pilsener and a witbier. Overall good quality craft, but nothing exceptional.
