8/2015...brewery draft. Pours bright gold. See through with a white foam lid. Crisp pilsener nose. Clean taste that is light and balanced. A subtle bitter sneaks in at the end. Good pils.

Served on-tap in a shaker pint glass at the brewery's tap room.

Having missed this one the first time it was tapped, I've been rather pleased to see it hanging around recently. It pours a clear straw topped by a finger of slightly off-white foam. The nose comprises clean white bread, grass, light mixed greens, and a touch of hard water. The taste brings in more of the same, the bread a bit biscuitier now, helping to balance some of the hoppiness, but also leaving plenty untouched to bloom as they see fit. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, a solid pils, one that doesn't overdo it on the hops and doesn't forget that the backbone of a beer is its malt profile. It won't set the pilsner world on fire, but it's eminently drinkable when it's available.
