COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light and crisp lager is brewed with Pilsner and American barley malts and dry hopped with Alsatian Goldings and Strisselspalt for a floral noble hop aroma. Crisp, clean, and light, this beer is brewed for the people.

Tap, BT. Two-fingers of pure white foamy head on a light golden lemon yellow. Lemon zest and minerally hops in the aroma, pretty subtle but nice. Mineral, grass, hay, and some light grain in the flavor...gets a touch sweet in the middle. Lighter soft body. Solid.

Clear deep yellow with a fizzy white head. Grain and orange aroma and taste with a crisp malty finish.

Old GABF 2010 notes... I know I got a lot of written notes to convert... Aroma is doughy bread and biscuit action atop grass and pine hops. Flavor stays same. Pretty hopped up but easy going down and crisp.

GABF 2010. Pours a light golden yellow with a thin nice lasting white head. Aroma is clean doughy pils malt, bread, biscuit, floral grassy fresh hops, almost a sweet sugary malt aroma as well. Flavor is clean, toast, bread, light yeasty note, grass, herbal hops- overall a bit weak, but it was super fresh, no real flaws, crisp clean and easy drinking. I really liked it. I had this listed as a Helles, not a pilsner.

Draft @ Bear. Pours a bright, crystal-clear, medium-yellow color; thin, fine-bubbled, slightly fizzy white head with light retention and patchy lacing. Very light nose: a basic floral and mineral character, but not much in the way of a focused hop aroma; very bland, basic sugar malt note; nothing in the way of a yeast character: nice and clean. Medium-light body; lively, fine, almost prickly carbonation; neither creamy nor rough; on the sharp side of things, if anything, but still not sharp; honestly, kind of bland presentation overall, with a light mineral bitterness, a basic sweet maltiness, and hints of the lightest corn character that may or may not really be from corn; a light floral note is present as well, but ultimately this is just a basic, crisp pilsner that doesn’t really offer all that much; not really a compelling argument for American-style renditions, but crisp and quite sessionable nonetheless, all told. Light finish of minerals, floral notes; well-balanced, with a lingering toasty / basic maltiness, and not stale, which is nice.
