This doesn't look appealing at all, pissy yellow.
Aroma is grass, and bread, taste is about the same.
Thin and watery. Probably worthy to use when boiling brats!

Taste: some piney and citrus hop bite, floral, mellows out at finish. Hoppy, fermented grainy nose. Pale gold, mostly clear, white head and some lace. Medium body. Old school lager taste. 42 IBUs

Pours a very clear pale yellow. Taste is malt some sweetness some light citrus. A little harsh on the back end but not a bad effort.

12oz can dated: "Swirl by: 12/25/17"
Poured into a Becker shows a very pale, almost pastel gold-yellow colored body with forever rising bubbles to a persistent cap of small-foamy white bubbles.

Aroma is a straight bread malt.

Flavor is intense bready malt with a matching floral hop for balance.

Mouthfeel is lighter leaning with a clean finish, but a slight soapy aftertaste.
Overall this was great out on the golf course.

On tap in Baltimore? Yes, yes it was. I had no idea they were distributed this far out.

Anyhow, it pours a very pretty, bubbly gold with a decent head.

Smells more Czech than German, very crisp, clean, and saaz-heavy.

Tastes... excellent. Wow. Easily one of the best American pilseners I've ever had. The overall profile is similar to Victory's excellent Prima Pils, only this one is less aggressively hoppy and has a more delicate, cleaner finish.

A wonderfully brewed beer.

My wife and I met a couple of our friends at the Two Brothers Taphouse recently and I happened to see this beer on the list. I did not know that Two Brothers did a pilsener and since that is a style that I have been drawn to quite recently, I decided to give it a whirl.

This beer pours a clear, straw hue that showcases moderate carbonation and a frothy white head that is quite bright and dissipates slowly to a thin lacing. 4/5 The aroma is a good mix of malt and hops with cracker, white bread, lemon zest, black pepper, and grass all coming out strongly and playing their respective parts. The hops are the primary character here with the malt playing a very strong backup. 4.25/5 The flavor profile is very similar to a New Zealand style pilsner with white bread and cracker being the chief malt notes before the hops come in with lemon zest, a bit of grass and a black pepper-esque spiciness. It is very hoppy and fresh tasting with a moderate bitterness that lingers lightly after swallowing. 4/5 This is a light bodied pilsner that is crisp, prickly, and moderately drying with a light lingering dryness. Carbonation is a moderately strong burn. 4/5 This is a really well done pilsner that really fit the bill the evening that we were at the Taphouse. This beer is easily sessionable and sits nice and light in the stomach, pairing well with a variety of foods. It is very simple, straightforward, and well executed. 4/5
