Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Smell was malt, grain and classic hops. Taste was crisp with noble hops a citrus flower taste with cracker malts/bread in the finish. Mouth feel was crisp and refreshing slight dryness in the end. Not a fan of Indeed brews this one i would have again.

Light, clear gold color with good white cap and lacing.

Aroma of rich malt and herbal, spicy hops.

Taste on entry has hops slightly ahead of the malt with a sharp, herbal spiciness that leads but does not cover the malt. Malt is bready, yeasty like fresh rolls, and the flavor is rather dry. Hops continue to the finish ending on a refreshingly bitter note. Complementary flavors that merge well together to make a complex whole.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Altogether a class act and it's a class well worth attending.

Soft malt and a little grain on aroma with a fresh yeast bit and a small amount of sulfur.
Mostly clear and closer to yellow than gold. Dense small white head.
Nice blending of herbal hop flavors right away without losing the clean malt/grain taste. Hops flavor builds throughout the drink and moves to a smooth bitterness that linger with a soft and pleasant dryness. A little sweetness shows in time.
Not super crisp. More of a smooth lager feel.

Had on draught in Minneapolis. Pours with a 1/4” head that disappears quickly. Straw colored and clear - just as it should be. I detect a slight crackery pils malt scent when I smell this, but not much. Taste is a nice clean German lager up front with a slight sweetness that lingers on the palette. I’d prefer a slightly drier, crisper finish. That being said, this is a good, drinkable German lager. I would drink it again.

Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a thick white head which leaves some lacing after it recedes. The aroma is bready and grassy. Flavor is noble hop forward with a sweet bread flavor, just a touch of bitterness on the finish. Feel is crisp and well carbonated. Over all a pretty good beer.

12oz can. Poured a clear, pale golden color with a large, white head of soft foam. It smelled floral with sweet honey and caramel. Nice clean tasting beer. Grains, light caramel, sweet honey and a light bitterness.

Poured 12oz can into Pils glass. Clear straw color with a foamy 2 finger white head. Aroma of bready and clean malts with some grassy and spicy Nobel hops. Flavor is grains, bready malts, and it has a dose of spicy and bitter hops, a bit more than I would expect in a Pils. Crisp and clean, finishes dry with a lighter body. Interesting take on this Pils.

12oz can. Served in a willi becher glass. Pours a slightly murky golden yellow body, one finger white head, good retention and splotches of lacing. Smell is crisp grain, a bit of floral notes, minerals, a bit of sulphur. Flavour is similar, a bit bland though. Floral, mineral, fair bit of biscuit and grain. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, good carbonation, reasonably drinkable, crisp floral and earthy bitterness. Fairly solid and pedestrian pilsner.
