Poured a beautiful golden yellow with two fingers of pure white head. It looks like what a quintessential lager/pilsner beer should look like, like every picture in media one has ever seen. Excellent. Scents of pilsner malt sweetness, Bohemian hops and some very slight citrus. A nose very similar to many a pilsner, but with a unique, American twist. I like it. Flavors of grapefruit, grapefruit pith, citrus and crystal malt sweetness, but with a nice Bohemian hop character present as well. It balances the bitterness with the sweetness as a good pilsner should and is quite pleasant in it's taste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A bit heavier than a normal pilsner, but fitting an American Imperial Pilsner. It was still quite easy to drink and was not unpleasant. Overall this was a unique, yet familiar beer. It had the hallmarks of the classic pilsner, but with the twist of American Craft. I greatly enjoyed it, and would go back to it again.

A- Looks like an inviting pilsner. Golden color with a white head that hangs around throughout the drink. Clean

S- Sweet pilsner malt and subtle earthy hops meld together nicely. Not overly grainy like some pilsners tend to be.

T- Sweet and wonderfully malt forward. Buttery and juicy. Full flavor. Earthy, herbal hops give for a late spice and make for great balance. Peppery almost.

M- Love the feel. Alcohol is subtle with no esters at all. Creamy yet crisp. Rich. Light and so refreshing.

O- Paired with a spicy burger at The Foundry in Westport, KC. Simply put, my favorite pils ever.
