I find this beer to be surprising and misleading in many ways. First of all it called a Lager but it is Chech Pils. It is so light that it is a surprise when you taste its richness. Currently one of my favorite lighter brews

The best American representation of a Czech pils that I've had. Perfect balance, crisp, dry, no off flavors.Dangerously drinkable but at 4.9% its perfect. A home run from a criminally underrated brewery.

On draught at Mule Bar. Poured a clear, glassy, amber. A foamy, off-white head resides unwavering. Smells of apricot, grain, yeast and straw. Tastes of green apple and apricot, bready malt, orange peel, and a slight earthiness with a mixture of faint taffy and bubblegum at the end. Smooth yet bold for its size. A brilliant and complex pils that proves the style doesn't get enough props.

Had in a 4 ounce pour at the brewery. Fresh from the brewery this is an outstanding pilsner. Fresh light and a pretty heavy hop presence. One of the best I have had.

Pours just golden yellow. Just a hint of burnished color on it. A white crown that is creamy and lasts. clear and bright. Nose is powerful with malt. This malt shows texture even on the nose. It is breaddy with a golden crust and softly biscuity too. Hallertau Mittlefruh are like downy sweet earth and saaz are sweet and lengthy with herbal. The restraiend floral is like a crisp cone. The drink is sensational . Breaddy malt takes center stage with bold textures. The noble hops are potent and each one is well defined. Swift bitterness and this finishes with sweet spice form one hop married to the sweetness in the other. Plenty of bread to finish clean and crisp with a good bubble.

From the 12 fl. oz. can with no date listed. Sampled on August 30, 2015 after chopping some wood.

Very light yellow pour to the point that it almost looks like water. Modest white fizzy head that fades.

The aroma is a lovely sensation of Graham crackers, sweet grainy malts, and cut grass.

Light and quite smooth body.

Delightful sweet graininess and cracker notes. The bitterness at the end is mild and dry. Except for how light colored it was I though it was right on the mark for the style.
