Clean, pale gold beer pours from the glass, leaving a thin, off-white head that is well-retained. Pils malt lends typical aromas of bread and dough, with hints of grain and grass noticeable, and a decent amount of spicy hops as well. Bready flavors are met with grain and barley. The malt sweetness is tamed by the grassy and spicy hops in the finish. Light bodied, this pilsener is also moderately carbonated.

Aroma: citrusy Saaz hops work with bright, alluring malts--smells straight out of Eastern Europe... Appearance: swiftly effervescent, light golden body that rushes up the flute to stimulate a webbing three-finger white head... Palate: medium-bodied, slightly oily at the throat but substantial enough to be a lager... Taste: flavorful, zesty hops that awaken the tongue; refreshingly smooth, with the slightest hint of corn or hay; some banana and clove as well... Overall: pleasant, softly buffering pilsner--definitely a seasonal that I will seek out in its season...
