Very flavorful german pilsner.

Crystal clear, light straw colored appearance with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to NOTHING (think white grape juice).

Distinctive aroma of hops and malt, along with a mildly sweetness and peppery bite in the taste.

A somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Impressive pilsner made with traditional characteristics.

pours out a glowing straw color with bright white head that quickly recedes. mellow aromas as expected, some bready malt and grassy hop scents. on palate the biscuity malts shine through and are matched by pleasant hoppy flavors of herbs, grassy hops, lemon, citrus peel. all flavors very well integrated and overall super crisp, perfect summertime beer!

This one pours a brilliantly clear straw yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like grassy and spicy hops, light breadiness, and some lemon.

Foam pretty consistently does lagers very well, and this is no exception. This is crazy crisp, with a really nice hop bite- lightly spicy, with a fresh grassy bitterness, and a light sweet breadiness. This is definitely what I want with the style.

This is light bodied, super crisp and refreshing, and very clean, with a good level of carbonation.

This is really quite good- pilsner is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite styles.

On tap at the brewery.
This was poured into a stange.
The appearance was a glossy bright yellow color with a fair transparency about it. Mild carbonation could be seen rising to fill a finger's worth of white foamy head. This slid off mildly to barely leave any lace.
The aroma captured a fine blend of sweet biscuits, white bread, light grassy hops and a touch of lemon scent.
The flavor briskly served the sweet side pleasantly by blending the prior noted aromas. Clean brisk sweet biscuit to lemon aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation was spot on. ABV felt as projected. Super clean biscuity finish.
Overall, very nice German pilsener well worthy of having again and wouldn't mind having with it's respectable food.
