on tap at uno’s. Slightly better than the previous beer (Spellbound PA).

Hey, got a free pint glass with it. Shared with wife.

On tap at Citizens Bank Park.

20 ounce plastic cup in the 90 degree heat is not a great combination, but this did fine washing down some Bulls BBQ Pulled Pork.

Bottle to pilsner glass.

Hot day, friends over for pool party. Good way to start. Refreshing.

Appearance - clear golden/straw color with eggshell white head

Smell - grains, biscuit, fresh cut grass

Taste - biscuit, pale malts, slightest of corn sweetness on the back

Mouthfeel - lighter end of medium bodied, medium plus carbonation, crisp and clean upfront, well hopped and slightly sweet on the back end, dry finish

Overall - good American rendition of a Pils. Worthy of a re-visit. I want to say this is the best U.S. version of a Pils that I can remember consuming

Price Point - $2.29/12 oz can

I poured this into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice golden clear yellow color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that must have maintained itself for a good full one and a half minutes before it started to slightly die at a decent pace. The smell had the German pilsner malts coming through hard up front and then gently allowing a nice light spiciness coming through as it warmed a bit. The taste was sweet and let the light spiciness come back again. There was no aftertaste. On the palate, it sat pretty light and had a great sessionable quality running about it. The carbonation is there but not overbearing. Overall, this is just another great beer made by an exceptional brewery.

A very good beer that has is well hopped but far from bitter.the aroma is hard to describe and has almost little similarity to the taste. Dry,yeast,hops,with a slight bitter finish. A great beer if you like hops but not a fan of strong ipas

A: Standard pils. Golden. Light carbs. Small head and lace.
S: Grassy. Bit of banana?
F: Slightly bitter at the end. Dry with little foam.
T: The dry pils flavor is about at standard as a pils can get. Has that slight rope flavor with just a bit of sweetness. The alcohol asserts itself a bit.
O: This was my favorite in the 4 beer sampler I had from Troegs. If drinking with friends that are not huge hop heads, this would be a suggestion. Dry and refreshing. Standard pilsner.

This beer pours a bright yellow golden color with a good bit of chill haze. There is a dense, 2.5 finger, rocky white head and very active carbonation. The retention is fantastic as there is a one finger cap that sticks around til the last sip and there are many sticky webs of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is toasted bread, crackers, straw, fresh cut grass, floralness and the faintest hint of lemon.

Taste is the same, but not as bright as the smell suggested. The flavors aren't muddled, they are just a bit subdued.

Feel is light, crisp and well carbonated. The finish is dry.

Overall this is a very good pilsner. If the taste was as bright as the smell this would be up there with my favorites. As is, it is a very solid beer. Not mad about buying a 6pk instead of a single.

Poured from the can. Great head on top of transparent gold. Classic pilsner taste, goes down crazy easy.
