Not enough bite for German oils. Prima is better.

Great straw color with a pleasing scent, strong flavor, better than average German-style pilsner, light foam after pour, a real winner.

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!
