Pours a nice hazy light yellow with a finger of head with great lacing. Smells piney with a touch of corn in there as well. Tastes slightly skunky with a hint of pine and corn.

Overall a great pilsner with tremendous flavor without any odd aftertaste like some skunky beers have.

Great beer! Not overpowering. Golden appearance, with a clean finish and very refreshing. Definitely not too sweet/not too much alcohol content. The hops are just right - present but not overpowering. The mouthfeel is extraordinary - big, clear crisp carbonation that isn't fizzy and feels just right. I could see this being one of my standards - especially in the summer. One of my favorite beers.

Paired this with camembert, fontina, and gouda. Really nice for end of summer. Absolutely refreshing. Straightforward, with an edge of orange. Really outstanding with the creamy camembert. Would recommend as a stand-alone or accompaniment to a sophisticated dinner first course.
