COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is in honor of the crazy pills I used to have to take working for the man. Eg. We need you to visit a client ASAP! On the other hand we have a travel ban. You can see my dilemma and my need for the Crazy Pills.

Nice pilsener that has a good bite but is still smooth enough to be sessionable.

Draft at Iron Horse. Pale yellow with bright white head. Tons of citrus zest and pepper, bordering on offensively zesty. Bright and crisp.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Tap at Milltown. Straw pale golden with small white head. Nose is light and zesty, light herbal notes, lemon/lime, light pepper, and sweetness. Flavor is similar, more hoppy than most pilsners, I guess thats what makes it crazy. Slightly chalky finish.

emacgee (4136) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Draught at Milltown. Pours a soft and clean straw yellow with one finger of sticky white head. Nose is upfront bready malt with lightly herbal and spicy hop quality. Crisp flavor with a forward hop bitterness. Light bodied.

boydstradamus (9) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2011 does not count
sparkling light golden colored pilsner, light grassy character on the nose. light bodied with a thin lively sparkle. minimal, clean, and abrupt finish. with "crazy" attached to pils, left me wanting more hop character than was provided. draft/growler for my test sample. would work well with spicy foods that need a clean, crisp, but mostly refreshing beverage.

OldGrowth (2751) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2011
old note, not dated, Ok aroma, tart, grassy sourdough. Pale yellow golden color, no head or lace. bitter flavor. Lite body, smooth mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Ok, fine lawn mowing type beer. easy to drink.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Couple pints on tap at Fullsteam, Derm. Having been crushing a lot of SA Noble Pils of late, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this one as much as I did. Fizzy golden pour, bright and fresh looking. Nice dry noble hop aroma with a hint of fruits and gentle malt undertones. Very crisp and drinkable mouthfeel. Flavors are robust and floral at the outset, nicely dry to finish. Fine stuff.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2011
On tap at Fullsteam in Durham. Pours slightly hazy bright light gold with welcoming white head. Nose is grassy hops and some bread. Similar taste; very crisp, and with a bone dry finish. I want more.

thegreenrooster (3295) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Pour is a bright gold with a large white head. Aroma is of biscuit malts and a decent saaz hop. Flavor is more of the same with a nice bready malt with a decent hop in the backround. A solid example of the style.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Draft - this pils pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of bread, floral hops and corn. Pretty easy tasting with grasses and floral notes at first sip. Not typically a huge pils fan but this one was pretty tasty and I would have no problem ordering it again - looking forward to my next Saturday afternoon visit to the brewery.
