On tap at Indika in Houston. Very crisp and refreshing, excellent with faux-Indian food (OK, Indian Fusion, whatever). Plenty of hops bitterness but not over the top. Grassy, hay-like aromas mix with bready malt...very pleasant. Actually tastes quite a bit like a German Pils which is not always a given with American iterations of the style. Now I can say I have had 2 Real Ale beers that I like (Full Moon Rye IPA being the other) to go alongside all the ones I didn't think much of.

Fresh at the taproom. This will make you rethink your opinion on AAL that parade as pilsners.

Grains brought in from Germany give a great malty sweetness. Plenty of fruity, citrusy hops balance it out. Really well done and super refreshing in the Texas heat!

Hazy what color poured from can. White foamy had. Light fruity smell is very Nice. Mild bite on the taste. Crisp, lots to offer in this pilsner. I'll take it.
