WTF? I cannot believe I've never reviewed this beer before. 12-ounce bottle poured into a pilsener glass.

A: Pale straw yellow with a slight chill haze, and two fingers worth of creamy white head that slowly settles, leaving beautiful lacing on the side of the glass.

S: cracker and honey malt aroma at first, with a pungent, floral, grassy hop note.

T: Starts off with a touch of honey, biscuity malt, and just a touch of raw grain. Hops rush in with some lemongrass, fresh greens, and a huge floral character. Finish is crisp and very refreshing.

Notes: Moderate in body, with a ton of flavor. Balanced and extremely clean. Drinkability is superb. Move aside, Germany. This is hands down one of the finest Pilseners on the planet!
