Light golden hued with nearly no head at all. Exceptional clarity. Aroma is faintly of light pilsner malt and somewhat of a saltine cracker. The mouth is light and refreshing. The flavor is light pilsner malt and faint bittering hops. The finish comes off as salty due to the lasting hop bite.

On tap at Engine 15. So-so drinking beer. No aroma. Light yellow with a lace sheet. Bland though a dry lightly hopped finish was pleasant.
Average beer overall. Formerly called Fizzy Yellow Beer. 35 IBU. More that than a true Czech Pilsner in terms of taste.

Served from tap into a shaker. Poured golden yellow with one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, bread, wheat, grain, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, grain, wheat, bread, and spice. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. While this one definitely had quite a few flavors that one would expect from the style it just felt like it didn’t really have anything above and beyond that. While this fact made it quite easy to drink, it didn’t make it very enjoyable unfortunately. If you are a fan of traditional brews from this style, this one might be right up your alley though. I prefer for my palate to be challenged though, thusly why I say that. Worth your time is you are a fan of the traditional style, but that is about it.

Draft tonight at the GF tap takeover at Bittercreek... Pours clear polished golden with a nice rocky white head.. I would guess Saaz hops and a heavy hand on the flavor and aroma.. bittering is also pretty good... Seems more pale malt than pils malt, but not a big complaint... Nice and clean and a great change of pace from the hop and sour monsters we've been enjoying tonight.... I'd happily buy this again, may not be perfectly to style, but still nice when a brewer tries to make a cool lager.
