Look: Straw color, good clarity (slight chill haze), medium sized head that sticks around.

Smell: Bready, toasty malt with floral (a hint of roses) hops. A hint of that unexplainable 'fresh air' smell that some Czech beers have. Like clothes that have dried on the line on a dry sunny day.

Taste: Malt is a little sweeter than it smells but dry enough for a German pils. Hops blend nicely with the sweeter malt notes. Bitterness could be a little higher.

Feel: Really nice, clean, satisfying. Could be a touch drier but that is splitting hairs.

Overall: Just a really enjoyable beer that is easy on the palate but still very flavorful. Vermont is not just about IPA's!

Had at Lost Nation on Saturday, 9/26. Pours a clear straw color with a decent head that sticks around. Smell is mostly sweetness from the cracker malts. Taste is not the best, big sweetness up front followed by a grain note, no hops to speak of but finishes a little bitter and dry. A very average beer that misses the mark for a pilsner. Thankfully the other beers for Lost Nation weren't as disappointing as this.

On tap at Farmhouse Tap. Served in a half pint.

Appearance - Clear yellow body. Small white head. No lacing. A small collar and a few wisps.

Smell - Pilsner malt. Faint sharp hop. Slightly grassy.

Taste - Malty up front. Hops kick in the back with a minimal hoppy bite. Clean, but overly malty in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Could be crisper and sharper in its hop profile. Otherwise good.

Overall - My conclusion with Lost Nation is that they do farmhouse styles much better.
