Notes: Pilsner is perfection, and perfection takes patience. After a lengthy and methodical fermentation, Uncle Rick’s emerges. We take the purest Blue Ridge Mountain water and combine it with German yeast, Noble hops, and traditional pilsner malts to brew our perfect Pilsner. For our friends and family, for sunny days and long nights, for celebrating, for relaxing, for Uncle Rick: we craft this beer for both the beer connoisseur and the connoisseur of life.

I bought a couple of six packs this summer and for my taste, they have the flavor profile spot on. Golden color with decent one inch head, grainy aroma with some hops, Flavor has an excellent balance between biscuity malt and earthy hops. Brisk and mild bitterness on finish that calls for another sips. Refreshing yet substantial.

Pours a pale yellow color with moderate head that fades relatively slowly. Malt dominates the smell and taste, with some slight bitterness. Medium bodied and frothy mouthfeel. Some dryness coming through in the aftertaste. Well balanced and very good brew. I like it, just don't love it

A: Pours a relatively clear pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint bright yellow + straw yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces ti a medium to large sized patch of slightly mottled soapy sudsy thin film covering a little more than 60% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready + biscuit malts along with a light aroma of slightly toasted grainy malts and a hint of grainy sweetness. Light aromas of spicy + grassy + herbal hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready + biscuit malts along with a light flavor of slightly toasted grainy malts and a hint of grainy sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of spicy + grassy + herbal hops which impart a slightly heavier than light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable and a decent representation of the style - refreshing.

poured from a 12 oz can, aroma of spicy and floral hops taste of spicy and floral hops with a nice malt balance some bread and wheat taste, a slightly thin mouthfeel would be a good first craft beer to try from mass marketed beers refreshing with plenty of flavor and mild finish. I hope to buy this beer again.

12 oz can, dated July 2018, at the Fall 2018 ASMF.
Pours with a clear orange-amber body topped by a rather weak, sudsy white head.
Medium body and carbonation.
Pine with a touch of citrus in the nose.
More complex, fairly well balanced flavor that had a more obvious malt load.

12 ounce can - Charlie's Beer & Wine in Marietta, Georgia.

The packaging date is a bit tough to make out. 07/23/18? Not sure about the 7 or the 3.

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden-hued body with a foamy white cap of suds.

Smell: Softly scented of biscuits, lightly toasted grains with a thin veneer of honey beside spicy, slightly grassy/herbacoues hops.

Taste: Pils malts, lightly biscuity and honeyed with a relatively low sweetness, but it's also a tad grainy which gently folds into the zesty hops, giving a small touch of citrus and herb. The spiciness lingers into the aftertaste beyond the drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-soft carbonation.

Overall: A solid, tasty pils rendition.

Packaged on 6/26/18.Pours a crystal clear light golden with a large blooming bone white head that sticks nicely as it settles ever so slowly into a soapy-like mass.Toasted grains and a slight mineral note in the nose,a smattering of leafy/spicy hops show thru as well.A fantastic palate with a decent amount of toast and bready notes,a slight honeyed sweetness and a smack of spicy hops in the finish.Nicely rounded and easy to drink but this is no wimpy throw back pilsner,great job.One of the bast I have ever had.
