A definite hit of malt and grain, a hint of floral hops come across in the nose. The taste is crisp cracker malts, a fine bitter finish. A clean feel, and very drinkable. One of the better Pilsners I've enjoyed.

Pours a soft, frothy head. Grainy, malty aroma. Clear, golden color. Starts with a nice, grainy bitterness with a touch of citrus. Smooth malt builds over the grainy hops. Finish is slight bitterness, grainy hops and lingering malt.

This is really, really nice. Great complexity and great hop profile.

any beer with a grateful dead or marx reference is cool with me, and this can be interpreted either way, so props for that. the beer aint bad either. its a real pale straw color, like second runnings of a pale ale in appearance. the head is tall and mighty, and although it settles fast, the beer looks really crisp and nice for a minute. the nose is unremarkable really, generic czech type pils malt with a little body to it, and then the hops, which are noble region for sure, and pretty well dosed, above the european average for sure. the flavor is bright for how reserved the aroma is, fresh grain and a healthy helping of the hops, which add an herbal quality along with a rather prominent bitterness. this beer is supremely refreshing, and its not nearly as light as it looks like it is. clean finish though, save a little bitterness. overall a cool beer from these guys, my first. one i could hammer a sixpack of on a warm day while splitting wood no problem. workingmans beer, i like it.
