Can. Awesome pilsner. I haven't had much Great Lakes experience but I found this to be quite a good start. Really biscuity nose. Flavor is well rounded. Would drink more of this if available.

Good looking see through pils with a slight white head from tap. Bready malt scent with a hint of spice from this brew. Nice pils bread malt flavor with some spice and just the right amount of bite to the end of this brew. This has a nice taste here with some complexity for sure and a lingering Belgian yeast finish. Decent carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. Taste wins, this is a 4 in my book.

12 oz single bottle, enjoy by 6/17/17 (bought it yesterday), poured in a standard pint glass. Crystal clear gold with a one finger fluffy white head the retains decently through out. The aroma is light pine, bread and spices. The taste follows suit. The feel is very smooth, with enough carbonation to hold everything together. Pretty good pilsner, will be on the lookout for some fresh(er) versions (though this one had no off notes).

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a clear, bright, straw color with a bright white head, lots of carbonation resulting in great head retention, looks great.

A: Bready malts, spice, pepper, honey, subtle aromas of wet hay, smells solid.

T: Up front there are hints of honey followed by a subtle yet enjoyable spice and pepper notes, finish has bready, biscuit malts with more honey lingering in the aftertaste, subtle notes of wet hay as well, very nice.

M: Light bodied with a crisp, clean, refreshing mouthfeel, good amount of carbonation, very drinkable.

O: A solid beer, good amount of balance, complexity, and drinkability, love the balance of honey and malt, I could definitely drink this one on a hot southern CA day.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with two fingers of foam atop; dots and dashes of lace

Smell: Bready, with herbal (almost peppery) and grassy elements

Taste: The malt base is bready, with a touch of honeyed sweetness; above the malts, there is an herbal, peppery character that develops, through the middle; with grassy tones building into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A nice pils, that shows the distinctiveness of the Czech style

perfectly balanced example of a Midwest take on the Czech Pils style. The breadth and malt backing would lead me to believe this is a FFF Pils. outstanding.
