This is one pilsner that is enjoyable to drink. It has a nice fruit hoppiness to it that goes nice over the usual barley flavor for this style. This beer does a nice job of staying interesting while still delivering what you would expect from a pilsner. Refreshing, light, and easy to drink. This beer adds taste, the missing link in a pilsner.

My 250th review!!!

A - Two fingers worth of virgin white head... Moderate carbonation... Lots of fizz as the head begins to settle, though it displays solid retention... Terrific stickiness... Completely translucent pale straw color... Clean...

S - European hops... Crystal malt... Lemon... Orange zest... Cut grass... Faint floral aromas... Mildly sweet... A hint of muskiness...

T - A generous amount of maltiness upfront... Biscuit... Sweet citrus... Then the hops rise to the top and never go away... A hint of pepper emerges as part of the aftertaste...

M - Crisp, clean and dry are the first three words to come to mind... Slightly aggressive, yet smooth... Medium bodied... A hoppy aftertaste lingers...

D - A tremendous and memorable example of the style... This one will definitely challenge your palette and could head to head with any Pilsner found round the world...
