A really outstanding pilsner--I think underrated as it's a stock beer at Lost Rhino. Beautiful, tall, long-lasting head, leaving generous lacing on the glass. Saaz and Hallertau hops on the nose, just right for a (real) premium pilsner. Real nice rather thick mouthfeel. Taste is all hops & malt perfectly balanced. I think every "session IPA" drinker should try this--as it really is superior, imho. Lager is a more advanced beer than ale--which is why the Germans & Czechs perfected it. And I'm proud that American craft-brewers now routinely make lagers like this--better--I think, than most German and even Czech pilsners.

The beer is dark gold, moderately cloudy with a big foamy white head that has great retention. A steady amount carbonation flows up the sides. The aroma is bright and crisp, with green fruit and grains dominating and a light spicy pepper quality in the background. The taste is much the same. The body is lighter without being thin or watery with just a slight tingle from the carbonation.

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, honey gold coloring with a sparse, white head. Aromas of toasted grains, subtle floral highlights, and hints of tart and sweet lemon. Flavors are crisp and bold forward, heavy on citrus tart and a toasted grain backbone, with some bittering hops thrown in the mix, too. Smooth, big, and crisp bodied, with a tart lemon linger on the otherwise toasty aftertaste. The finish is smooth and crisp. Solid brew.

Little too bitter to be a go-to pils, like too much grapefruit peel, but citrusy and bold.
