4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can from Bgthang in a trade. Popped this open whithout really thinking about it and was blown away. Pours straw yellow with a medium white head that leaves a light foam on the beer the length of the glass. Aroma is huge crackers, dried grass and some soapy notes that are a little floral. This beer packs a punch. Lots of big hay and grassy malts, very clean throughout but a huge fresh hop presence in the finish drying the mouth and leaving me wanting more. Single handedly one of the best pilsners I have ever had and one of the best beers of the last year. One that gets me excited to rate beer. Wish I had this stuff readily available.

Crisp with nice hops. No lingering aftertaste. Bit of a sourdough taste. Solid inoffensive beer.

can... medium straw, a bit murky, off white head only lives a bit of a watery cap... smells like a decent pilsner, floral bitter hops a bit of skunk, wet grains and an interesting must note, good for the style... the taste is boring and watery, I was expecting more after the interesting nose, bitter skunky finish... wanted to like this, but not quite there for me

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh can, courtesy SoLan. Pours a crystal clear, middle of the road golden hue. The body is strewn with effervescing streams of micro-bubbles. A moderate head of off-white froth settles to a thin, patchy layer, leaving hard, sticky flares of lace about the glass. The nose is clean and inviting, based in lightly sweet cracker dough, just-baking bread, and a subtle hint of egg wash. The malt base is perfectly countered by spicy, peppery, dried grass hops. On the first sip, the promise that the nose makes is fulfilled. Balance is impeccable, if not tilted slightly to the hoppy side of the needle. Fresh grass meets lightly sweet dough, mild toast, and delicious, delicious lager yeast. The palate is the perfect medium body, with the perfect amount of lightly spritzy carbonation there to clean the sugars off the palate. So good and refreshing. The only thing missing is the bratwurst and spätzle.
