A tad cloudy and pours a deep golden straw color.
Has average carbonation and a smallish foamy head.
A nice aroma of malts that maybe is slightly spicy. Hops bouqet is very weak as is the general aroma of the whole beer itself.
Has a nice malt taste weak but plesent, dry.
Hop bitterness is there with a pretty good bite.
A thin to medium bodied beer that is spritzy in the mouth with a dry.
Desent beer worthy of another shot.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a really nice pils. I enjoyed a pint of this at ABC’s Gettysburg location. The beer poured a bright and clear light yellow color with an ample white head. The head left some nice lacing around the inside of the glass, as well. The nose was bright, clean, spicy, hoppy and fresh. I smelled plenty of hops, lightly roasted malt, grass, hay and a hint of yeast. The flavors were really fresh, clean and crisp, with plenty of hops and spice. The beer was balanced really well with lightly toasted malt and a slight yeast flavor. This pils finished bright and crisp, with dry, spicy and clean hoppy notes.

Draught at the brewpub in Harrisburg. Clear golden color with white head as expected. Lightly bodied. Fairly crisp. Mostly malty. Not overly dry. About what one would expect. Refreshing enough.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold, just a hair darker than the dortmunder Mountain Lager. White head. Very dead aroma, light lager/sulfur smell, faint grass. Flavor is a moderate fresh grass, faint grain, light bitterness, hint of nutty malt. Smooth palate, lightly carbonated for the style. Good! Better than the Mountain Lager. Lost points for boring aroma, perhaps it needs a decoction, or just a better base grain (ABC used the same hybrid base malt for every single one of its brews).

Didn’t do too much for me, actually didn’t even finish the bottle. Soapy aroma, thin head. Some pale malt flavor, thin, watery. Just not a lot going on.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear pale yellow gold with a wispy white head. Minimal nose, some light grassy hops with a perfumy like quality and just a little pils malt. The flavor is not very clean or crisp. A little husky with minimal grassy hops on the finish. A little bit of a solvent like note on the finish. Medium bodied, a little heavy, with fizzy carbonation and a short finish. Not the best effort here, it just wasn’t very clean.
