Had on tap at The Answer in Richmond, Va. A clear, light yellow. Smells very mild of bready malts, flowers, and spice. Tastes, as others have noted, very clean, like a good German pilsner, though with subtle taste of what I can only describe as oats? Or something rather oaty. Feels light and drinkable and actually rather refreshing. Overall I like it. Solid.

Light and Crisp with sweet malt goodness. Floral, herbal, toasted sweet maltiness and subtle spicy noble hop flavors. Clean, crisp and smooth. Medium bodied and lively carbonation. Really solid.

Barely cloudy yellow with a small head that can be easily revived with a little vigor.

Grass hay hops and laffy taffy on the nose.

Surprising amount of hop bitterness on the palate, at least for a pilsener. Combined with some other nice rounding flavors of sweetness, citrus and laffy taffy, this is a very intriguing brew.

The drinkability of this beer is what keeps me from completely swearing off the pilsener style. This is nice.
