Keg at backyard bbq. Nice malty aroma with grassy hop. Full bread and grain malt flavour with a touch of nice hop bitterness before it ends clean and dry. Refreshing and solid for a couple of pints.

Tap outside of Seattle. Pint glass. Light gold with good carbonation, medium white head and good lacing. Zesty, fruity, floral nose. Light citrus taste, light hop, nice mouthfeel. Pleasant and really good for this style.

Draught at Walrus and Carpenter, 11/7/15.
Clear, highly carbonated deep golden liquid supports a medium-sized white head with moderate to moderately-high retention.
Good burst of zesty, spicy and floral hop notes in the nose with a strong sweet hay-like character behind it. Clean, with no alcohol and good minerality. Not too heavy on the doughiness.
Moderately sweet, with a strong maltiness yielding plentiful, rich honey notes that are well-balanced by liberal hopping adding spicy herbs and such things as we know and love from the saaz hop. Very carbonated, but it’s not sharp or fizzy and keeps it very refreshing. No flaws and quite clean.
These guys just won Gold for their Kolsch at GABF, which, in my mind is one of the biggest accomplishments you can have in the beer world (a gold in kolsch or a light lager category). Those are tough styles to do competently, let alone on a gold medal level.

Bottle sent to me by Prufrocksfar - thanks Chris!! Super clear yellow pour with a nice big white head. Earthy nose with a hint of cracker. Crisp taste, earthy spicy hop character with a strongly bitter finish. A classic Pilsner that’s been turned up a notch. Reminds me of many of the beers in Prague.
