Pours a lightly hazed golden yellow, little cap of white bubbles. Scent gives a breif hint of pils malts but has some moderate grassy and floral notes. Taste brings good solid pilsner malts and combined them with a lightly lemony and grassy hop profile. Light bodied, bubbly. Decent pilsner which retains some charachter of the style and isnt just the brew pubs light beer of choice for BMC drinkers.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a sampler glass.

Appearance: Clear pale light straw color. Dies dow to a ring of foam. Little head or lacing.

Nose: Light bready malt. Slight floral hop presence.

Taste: Follows smell. More husky/bread like though.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, crisp, light, hoppy/carbonic acid bite on the finish.

Overall: Brewed to style, no real flaws, but no real flare. Comes of a bit uninspired...even for a pilsner.

Part of my sampler at the brewery this was a mini version of the seasonal double pilsner I had and previously reviewed. Poured a nice golden color, very transparent, light white head that left no cap. The aroma was a little sweet with hints of corn and some spiced hops. The taste is a little thin but the flavor is nice with some spice and malt balance up front and a little bitter in the finish. Decent but the double pilsner was not as thin and was a better brew.

The last of three beers I had while at the Brewery.

Poured from tap a nice golden yellow color with a rather small head maybe a quarter inch if even that. This was really a NOLA take on a Pilsner. I nice spicy hoppy pilsner with just a hint of sweet herbs, with just a touch of bitterness to the tongue. Goes down nice and smooth, and makes a great partner for a grilled checken sandwhich.

A: Pours a clear golden/yellow color. A large and rocky white head rises to two fingers with good retention. Light lace is left as the foam recedes.
S: Floral, grassy, and spicy hops. Some biscuit and buttery malt lingers. Some diacetyl that detracts a bit, but a miner consern.
T: Very crisp and clean. Floral, grassy, and a little spicy. A good malt presents. Very light diactle, buttery malt and biscuit. Soft, but very nice.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp, clean and refereshing. Very easy to drink. I can quaff several with no problem.

This is a very good lager. I really enjoyed this. Subtle, but very enjoyable. Perfect for the hot days in New Orleans.
