Classic pilsner style lager. Straw in color, with a few fingers of head that has great retention. Rings of lacing are left behind as it settles to a fingernail cap. Tiny bubbles stream constantly towards the surface. Big aromas of biscuit, white pepper, lemon, classic floral and grassy hops. Clean, crisp flavor with lemongrass, biscuit and cracker malt, and bites of peppery goodness.
