We doubled a traditional pilsner recipe and brewed this one using the traditional German brewing technique of single-decoction. Pilsner malts and kettle sugar boost the alcohol content. The result is a hearty pilsner that is not too sweet and complimented with a bouquet of German Hallertau hops.

Pours a light golden with a medium, white, foamy head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, grain and grass. Flavor is yeast, biscuits, sweet malts, and light, grassy hops with a hint of alocohol. Medium body with medium carbonation. Well done.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pour on tap at Winterfest 2012, light yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of biscuit, some slight grass and earth notes, a slight hint of booze but rich biscuit mainly covers it up. Taste is a nice rich crackery biscuit, hints of grass and toffee, slight earthy and grassy notes, finishing fairly sweet with a slight warmth. Decent.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at the brewpub. Clear light gold pour with a good clingy white head. Mild pils nose, medium to light palate. Taste is mild grain, some sweet caramel as well. Nice pils!

Cloudy off copper pour with a big clean white head and great lacing. Avg palate. Mild aroma of sweet grains and alcohola touch of citrus bitterness. Flavor is a bit hot alcoholic front some grainy tastesa touch of sweet syrups finishing clean and dry with a.grassy hop. An odd taste but pretty good.
