Wow What a GREAT PILS! I decided it was time to revisit this one after the very flattering NY Times Article. This brew maybe the best Pils in the world right now.

Color is perfect. Nose while delicate has a definite and detectable balanace of malt and hop. The taste is just over the top. Sublte sweetness on the front end with an exceptionally clean, crisp, and dry back end. Carbonation on draft was excellent leaving nice lace rings down my pint glass. Great beer!

This beer has gone up in my estimation, so I've decided to review it again. It's simply the finest example of a Pils that I've come across. The edelhopfen aroma, taste, and prolonged bitterness are so heavenly. The incredible carbonation and refreshing character make it my warm weather beer of choice. I've had cases of this, and it's probably my favorite (easy) beer!
