This is a great middle of the road german style lager that reminds me of the bier your would find in the middle of the road anywhere in Germany.

I spent a lot of time traveling through and around Germany and this just hits that typical "Pils" you would find anywhere you stopped and got a bier.

The appearance from the Growler was orangish/red, not quite copper,

Smell: malted baked bread with the hallertau hop coming through.

Taste: Light bodied flavorful smoothness and slightly biter finish from the balance of hop/malt in this impressive take on the style.

would love to pair it with a snitzel

A-Deep clear orange, not much carbonation, one finger head that tries to leave some lacing.

S-Very malty, lots of bread/toast/wheat but not much else.

T-Rather sweet, same bread/toast/wheat from the nose. Some grass and lemon as well.

M-Lighter, some carbonation and a crisp finish.

O-Much better than it smelled, nothing special. But for a style I'm not usually fond of this was decent.

Pours is a deep gold with ruby highlights with a decent enough white crown and some lacing.

Aromas of yeast, malt and mild hop leaf.

Mild malt sweetness, nominal hop and yeast.

Medium body with good carbonation.

For me this would be a better summer sessionable brew. Very easy drinking as I believe pilsners should be. Great example of a pilsner. There is a sweetness there, though, that may prevent me from drinking too much. I'll have to get more to really put my finger, er...tongue on it.

12oz bottle into a pilsner glass. The brew appears a burnt copper color with yellow clarity around the edges. A white film fades back leaving spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma is malty with a biscuit to bready character that is a little toasty with caramel and buttery diacetyl towards the back. Fruity and floral components are also tossed in towards the finish.

The flavor is buttery with toffee and caramel malt. Fruity and floral hops mix in with diacetyl and a touch of alcohol warmth. A bit of green yeastiness is noted towards the back with some mineral/carbonic quality. As it warms up, it starts to grow on me with freshy bready grain malts and fruity alcohol aspects.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. This seems like a brew caught between a marzen and a czech pils but leaning more towards marzen. Not bad but not great either.
