On tap @ Flossmoor Station (Flossmoor, IL) on 8/6/10. Served in a Pils glass.

Pours a clear gold, topped with a ½ finger of bright-white head. This retains with a thin fizzy layer, which sticks around some, throwing a cascade of lacing up on the sides of the glass which then quickly slides down. The aroma is sharp and tangy in the nose, with a mix of earth, spice, citric fruit, and bready malt. The flavors hang here in the nose with a sticky crispness at times.

The taste is earthy fruit and the stiff bready flavor of Pils malt giving this a grainy tang on the palate. There is a lot of bitter spiciness here from the hops, which lingers with a steady gritty dryness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a crisp sharpness to the carbonation that still glides fairly smoothly for the most part.

Totally serviceable Pilsner here, coming off as mostly balanced with a nicely crisp yet smooth body on it. My only complaint is an overabundance of spicy character is present, which detracts from the drinkibility a bit. Worth a look.

On tap at the station yesterday, served in an imperial pint.
Review from notes.

Pastel yellow, with a delicate crown of thin lacing. About a finger of foam when it arrived. Lemony, grassy, clean pilsner malt aroma.

Some moderate bitterness and lightly dry in the end, nice and crisp feel to it. Minor herbal, grassy hop traces, likely of the noble variety. Not sweet, more dry, crisp, and slightly bitter, spot on for the style. Light with balanced carbonation, an easy drinker with no flaws. Get it fresh at the brewpub!
