This is a grainy, hoppy pilsner. Strong flavors for the style, but a bit unbalanced by the straight bitter approach. This to me is as close to being an IPA or a Pale Ale as it is a pilsner. Almost like Prima Pils from victory but not nearly as good or smooth.

In fairness this is out of the 'new' can, and I haven't had it on tap.

Not a very complex beer. It starts in one direction, and finishes in that one direction.

I could kick back a few of these, but probably won't because there are much finer, and more interesting brews for this price point.

A fresh draft of their Vienna is still the only good option for me at this brewery, even though like this, it's also one dimensional.

On tap at BRG in Chattanooga.

Appearance: amber colored body with excellent clarity.Semi-durable tan head and a little spotty lacing.

Lightly sweet aroma with about equal hops and malts.

Flavor: lightly sweet up front and mildly bitter by mid-taste; hints of baked bread with ample hops.

The medium body is smooth; near medium carbonation.

O: solid but unexceptional.

Tried this on-tap at the downtown Chattanooga branch. The server said this was a seasonal specialty. Poured a clear, deep honey yellow with a little white head. Decent retention. Aromas and flavors of honey, sweet pilsner malts. Pretty crisp, with a clean finish. Not terribly complex. Light-bodied. An easy drinker, but nothing phenomenal.

Draught in Chattanooga location. This one pours a crystal clear golden color. there was a small white head on mine. The aroma is milder, with some grass and floral notes. It is a lighter body beer. It’s taste is somewhat dry, and a touch biter. Nothing impressive about it, but nothing bad either.

Nice clear yellow, fizzy with a good head. Smells and tastes fruity with some mineral qualities that I actually enjoy in a pilsener. I would order this again if given the chance, a tasty beer. Unfortunately I live nowhere near Tennessee and therefore I probably won;t be drinking this beer again any time soon.
