A - Poured into pilsner glass. Body is a pale straw color with a beautiful, massive 6-inch white head. A net of sticky lace clings to the glass as the beer is consumed.

S - Grassy hops; cracker; hint of citrus

T - Cracker; grainy malt; strong peppery notes; lemon; strong hoppy finish but not overpowering

M - Lively carbonation. Hop presence lingers

O - Very refreshing and a very solid example of the style. A joy to drink on a warm summer day. Another reviewer mentioned that the taste reminded him of when he was a kid and his father would give him a sip of beer, and I get also get that. A go-to summer beer for me.

Golden yellow body; thin, fizzy, white head with poor retention. Doesn't smell like much... Maybe some bready malt? That's about it.

Crisp, tasty flavor profile. Surprising amounts of lemon & citrus add a nice touch. Good balance on the carbonation, medium body adds creaminess. I enjoyed this more than expected; would be happy to session this brew.

A - Clear straw, white head has nice retention with some lacing.

S - Bready, biscuit malts with an herbal, floral hop finish.

T - Taste is a little more hoppy than the aroma. Hay, grass, some lemon, floral and herbal. Finishes with a lingering pine/grassy bitterness.

M - Light, refreshing, finishes crisp and clean.

O - Another solid pils from PA. Wish I had gotten it in the summer.
