From 08/30/12 notes. Had this on tap at Amity Hall in NYC. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a clear golden yellow color with two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, wheat, light floral hops, and some earthy notes. Floral notes are nice.

t - Tastes of floral hops, wheat, grains, bready malts, earthy notes, light citrus hops, and light fruity malts. A step up from the nose.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, the body is smooth and creamy. Very easy to drink and great mouthfeel.

o - Overall a good pilsner; I could see a lot of non-craft beer drinkers enjoying this one. The nose doesn't have a ton going on but the taste is much better, and it is super easy to drink. Could definitely see myself having it again if I was looking for a pislner.

A-light golden color with a nice white head and a little lacing

S-light malt, faint citrus

T-malt, citrus, light pine, a nice bitter hop finish

F-light body with moderate carbonation, crisp and refreshing

O-a nice solid pilsener with good flavor, but a little light on the body
