3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, City Beer Store. Solid pilsner. Light gold, transparent. Nice white head. Aroma has a great blend of grassy hops and lager yeastiness. Fresh grain. Doesn’t go overboard with the hops. Dry, refreshing flavor. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. I support any craft brewery making a serious stab at a lager.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Herbal, spicy, and grassy hops fill the aroma. Not super intense, but very forward for a pils. The flavor is balanced toward the hoppy and bitter side, but also has a nice bready malt profile anchoring things. Light and crisp mouthfeel. Clean and well done pils with a nice healthy hop presence.

On tap at the brewery. Pours clear yellow with a short white head and a floral hop flavor. This is pretty tasty for a pilsner. The pils malt is a bit thin, but there is a nice hop bitterness.
