On-tap at The Bricks, Ybor City. What a great beer. Perfect looking; replete with flaxen translucent body and a nice cap of white frothy head. It also has a great nose; its sorta grainy and earthy-herbal. Furthering the great theme, it has great taste, specifically for nailing a dry Pils-type beer with rich herbal and mineral notes, and yet is not remotely skunky (and I don't mean light-struck skunkiness, I mean the skunky flavors imparted by certain Continental hops.) I forgot to mention the feel, perhaps because it is merely good and refreshing. I could drink this brew by the boot, yard or party-ball.

L: Pours a lively brilliant straw producing a ½” white foam collar that descends to a thick film over a 3 minute period. Produces thin sheet of lace.
S. Grainy white bread aromas with a very faint initial sulfur rise from the glass. There are no fruit aromas no diacetyl and very faint DMS.
T: A crisp very creamy palate with an initial bitterness, moderately low well attenuated malt finishes with a tart dryness. Very clean throughout.
F. The beer is creamy yet clean and crisp with a light to medium light body, medium high carbonation. The carbonation has both a crisp bite due to the carbonic acid but also a softness due to the texture.
O: Better than I expected.

A: No persistent head, no lacing, clear rings all the way down. Fitting of a clear lager.

S: Vague malt and metal. As good as any bottled lager I've met, but not a standout by any means.

T: Middling sweet, buckwheat honey front, center, and standing tall. Barest hint of a hop finish, a ghost of a bitter note.

M: Crisp and light, a good beverage beer. Sharp enough to stand against even a heavy pizza.

Overall: A fine full lager, suitable for three or four at a run. Good to pound or to sip. A fine all-around beer.

A nice, crisp, fruity lager that is delicious and flavorful even with its corn additives.
