From City Brew Tours, canned May 17th.

It pours a clear straw gold with a finger of foam with some good lacing.

The smell is grassy hops, biscuit malt, floral hops, very inviting.

The taste is grassy, biscuit malt, an interesting sweetness that I enjoy. Definitely tastes like a German Pilsner to me. The hops are just so right there and I am going to be sad when my glass is empty.

Smooth dry mouthfeel, just a delightful Pilsner in every way.

Aroma of the hayfields. Rather sweet, like alfalfa cookies. Tastes of corn and grain with something herbal and a modest bitteress. From the 16 oz can purchased on the West Coast, not knowing where the brewery was. At least they seem to make their own beers, unlike the mega-distribution oddities we see out here.

Best feature is the highly sudsy mouthfeel with loads of foam in the Old Fashioned glass. But overall it's not a bad quaff. Aftertaste is increasingly bitter, however.

Clear yellow straw with two fingers of foamy, off-white head. Good retention and spotty lacing.

Sulfur and a little sweet cornbread in the nose.

A certain cakeiness shows up front in the taste followed by hint of tropical juice sweetness followed by a moderately bitter and touch of sulfur again finish.

Medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

A well made beer. A bit sweeter than I expected, but with decent balance to keep everything in an appropriate range. Learning what a racist, anti-Semitic jackass the owner of the brewery is has ruined the experience for me though.

Aggressive pour yields two solid fingers of fluffy white head. Body is your classic pale pilsner yellow. A fairly solid ring of lace forms as the head subsides. Smells super clean with grassy notes. Lightly floral hops and biscuit-y malt. I want to say there's a light citrus note but it could be my brain connecting dots that just aren't there. When you've been drinking as hard as I have for as long as I have you learn not to trust yourself. I get that citrus note on the tongue too, though, so I can't be that big a dummy. Fresh green herbal notes round things out. It's pleasant if unspectacular. Mouthfeel is ever-so-slightly more robust than most pilsners and I'm appreciative of that. It's not, like, chewy or anything but it has solid heft. Medium-high carbonation could be dialed back half a notch, but that's a nitpick as this drinks incredibly well. Very, very solid pils.

Pours a clear golden color. Moderately effervescent. Thin white sudsy head.

Aroma has notes of grains, hay, lightly sweet, touch of grassy hops.

Taste follows the nose - hay, light grainy notes, dried grass, honey, lightly spicy hops on the back end.

Feel is light, crisp, easy drinking. Moderate carbonation.

Overall a very nice easy drinking pilsner.
