Color is that of top pilsners, golden.
Smell is appealing..dried apricots and cherries.
Taste verifies the promise of fruit from the smell.
Much heavier body than most pilsners.

Overall, I will be back for more.

Pours a pale gold with a thin white head that quickly disappears. Very floral aroma up front with hints of citrus and pilsner malt.

Nice pilsner malt taste up front with some standard hop bite. Very light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Finishes smooth/thin with a hint of lemon and floral hops.

Overall, a solid pilsner and one that is easier drinking than certain other Texan-brewed variants of the style.

This is easy drinking and it is thirst quenching in this heat

Look: semi-clear yellow with a thick white head

Aroma: pilsner malts and hops, some citrus

Taste: The flavor is a typical pilsner, a little bit better, some lemon and grassy hops.

Body/Overall: light easy drinking

12oz canned 1-22-19 (opened 2-9-19).
1" white head with decent retention down to a full cap. Pale golden pilsner with plenty of active carbonation. Laces the whole way through.
Pilsner malt nose with a lively lemon and grass-y hop aroma.
Nice crisp, crackery malt flavor. Zesty and spicy hops...light lemony finish that's nice.
Light bodied but definitely crisp and a good hop bite. Medium-high carbonation and mid-length finish. One knock is it feels a touch thin / watery in the finish.
Well done and has me wanting another one...good sign.
