Bottled, with a packaging date of 2/6/2016 (6 weeks old). Crystal clear golden color and rich white head. Smells like fresh bread. High carbonation, as is appropriate for the style. Malty, grainy and a bit grassy. A little rough. Strongly hopped for the style, but it's definitely noble hops not American. This is a bold Pilsner and I like it quite a bit. Tasted very fresh. Those who don't appreciate Pilsners and want them to be IPAs will of course be disappointed.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin white head. Fresh grainy aroma, mild grassiness, slight plastic. Fresh grains and crackery malt flavor, minor sweetness quickly washing into a firm bitterness. Other than that, the hops are pretty darn subtle. Clearly a German style pils. Effervescent and refreshing.
