Notes: A humble offering. The tax paid for our sins. For among the catacombs of our prized memoirs, we shall uncover the prestige of elegance through the veil of simplicity. Made with a decoction of 100% German Pilsner malt to maximize the capability of this remarkable grain. Hopped extensively in our whirlpool with Grungeist, Saaz and Hallertau Blanc. A beautiful complexion of culinary compliment. Your repeatable drinkable, dream-fulfiller.

16oz canned (looks like) 30 MAR 2020. Opened 4-25-20.
1" white head, decent retention down to 1/4"...strong currents of carbonation race up to keep the head afloat.
Golden straw color pilsner with a slight chill haze.
Patchy, thick lacing on the back wall.
Malt dough, pilsner cracker, grassy and herbal hops...dried grass/hay.
Sweet malt initially followed by a perfumed hop spice. Simple and well put together.
Light body, medium high carbonation. Soft mouthfeel and a slightly off dry finish with a light hop bitterness.
Refreshing and drinkability is high.
Very Good.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a handful of small to medium sized patches of thin film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of biscuit + bready + cereal grain malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. Light aromas of grassy + stone fruit/apricot + floral hops. Very light aromas of lager yeast.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit + bready + cereal grain malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of lager yeast. Finally there are slightly heavier than light flavors of grassy + stone fruit/apricot + floral hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which slowly fades away.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with very well hidden alcohol and a crisp + refreshing mouthfeel. Very enjoyable and does a great job of highlighting the pilsner malt along with the German hops. I could easily have a few of these. Great job.

Can stamped 30MAR2020

Pours a clear yellow gold with a lovely thick frothy head on top. Fresh grass, apricot, cereal grain, and biscuit aromas. Light floral hops, increasing citrus, crackers, bread crust, and clean lager yeast. Light bodied, slick feel, with a pretty crisp finish. Good - keep the lagers coming!
