From a 16oz can, dated 08/01/18. Served in a pub glass.

Pours a clear honey colour with fairly active carbonation and a towering creamy head of fluff. A shade darker than your typical pils. Retention is on the order of five minutes, leaving a thick cap and moderate lacing.

A hearty nose of doughy bread, damp grain and and cider with just a whiff of lemon zest and spice.

The taste is thick and bready up front, all sweet yeasty dinner rolls and fruit spread, with late arriving substantial bitterness, the aforementioned lemon zest and spice.

Feel is at the same time fat and doughy and clean and quenching. Better-than-medium bodied and well carbonated. Seems bigger than 5% but remains eminently drinkable.

I hate the term 'poundable' but I'm going to go ahead and use it anyway: poundable. There, I said it. This beer is bready, fat and chewy, thick and malty and hopped all to bejeesus. I like it a lot.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a lightly cloudy golden color with 2 fingers of effervescent white head. The head leaves a ring of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of peppery spice, sweet bread, crackers, and piney hops.

The flavor brings notes of bread, crackers, citrus, and finishes piney and bitter. Floral and clean.

The feel is light bodied with pretty good carbonation. A bit light in carbonation for the style, but still crisp and refreshing.

Overall, a very good pilsner that's clean and hoppy and highly drinkable.

Draft pour at Doc Ponds, Stowe, VT.

3/4 inch white head with some lacing. Beautifully bright body. Nose of cracker, spice, and slight hops. Taste mirrors nose with a nice Pilsner feel and overall a great little Pils right here. Cheers!

On tap at Armsby Abbey. Pretty damn drinkable to go along with amazing pulled pork sandwich. Understand what ''bready'' means now, still crisp though
