On tap at the VBC on 8/29/08.

Pours a clear orange gold with a 1/2 finger of creamy off-white head. Retains well and leaves a solid latticework of lacing behind. The aroma is a nice tingling mix of floral hops and tart citrus character with some backing tones of malt sweetness.

The taste is very floral feeling with some prominent citrus tang and an underlying base of sweet caramel. Ends with a nice, dry lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a fresh feel and crisp, biting carbonation.

Very crisp, fresh tasting, and quite quaffable take on a Pils. The use of the Saphir hops is quite unique, imparting some fresh citric character and a dry feel on the palette. Very nice.
