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.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Beautiful thick white head and great lacing. Bready and lemony smell and taste. Nice and crisp feel. I enjoyed it very much!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: slightly hazy straw gold with decwnt head and some lacing
Smell: pretty classic pilsner smells - cereal with some grassy herbal hops
Taste: Full flavored with moderate maltiness and a nice herbal grassy hops kick in the finish. Classic German pilsner flavors.
Feel: Light, spritely carbonation

Overall: classic full flavored german pilsner. Nice balance with a solid hops bite. Flavors were slightly coarser as it warmed but still a great pilsner
