From notes. Sample consumed at the "Summer's Here" Brewfest last weekend in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, which was where I learned of this brewery's existence.

Poured a mostly clear straw color. Fairly small amount of off-white foam. Spotty lace.

Slightly grassy hop scent, along with a vague, bready malt scent. To call the nose of this beer unobtrusive smelling would be the understatetement of the year.

No more going on flavor-wize that was advertised in the nose. There's a tiny bit of grassy, herbal hops, with an even smaller amount of malt fkavor, and that's about it.

Slightly oversized body for a pils. The mouthfeel is slightly prickly, but not as much as I expected for the style.

Perhaps an okay summer beer on a warm day,but I can't think of much more praise to give this one. If you come across it, and it's a hot day, try it to support a small town brewery, but don't feel you need to scour the land to find it.
