16 oz. can. Mostly clear yellow. Smells of cereal grain and florals. Tastes of sweet cereal grains, light grassy hops, and some fruitiness. Light body. It's ok. Too sweet and fruity, though.

Classic Pilsner but a little bit smoother and fuller-bodied like hint of a kolsch style. Going down perfect in August, I’m already wishing I had more and there’s 3 left

A: Pours a clear pale straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy pillowy bright white head that slowly reduces to a handful of small patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of doughy + biscuit + bready + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness and light to moderate aromas of grassy + spicy hops. Very light aromas of lager yeast.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of doughy + biscuit + bready + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of lager yeast. Finally there are light to moderate flavors of grassy + spicy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers for a moderate amount of time before fading and leaving a relatively clean finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a relatively clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a crisp + refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable with classic hop flavors + aromas over a traditional American Pilsner base. Could easily have a couple of these - perfect for these hot summer afternoons.

4.06/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a one finger egg white head; dots of lace

Smell: Malted grain and grassy tones

Taste: Pilsner malt flavors forward with a moderately grassy aspect; some residual sweetness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with crisp carbonation

Overall: I prefer a stronger grassy hop bite but this is a refreshing beach beer

Can (early July release)

Pours gold with a bit of haze and a thick, fluffy white head. Aromas of spicy, grassy hops and a little dough and honey. Continued spicy, herbal hop flavor with more of a cracker-like maltiness. Light and crisp, medium carbonation, very drinkable. I like it!
