As part of a sampler tray during my visit to Bellingham Not a favorite style of mine, but clear light straw colored with a modest bright white head. Tell-tale saaz hops aroma and the crisp bite of the pilsner style is nailed. Good representative of the beer genesis.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Collins Pub in Seattle, WA. Pours a clear yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral citruses and a light grass with a very lightly sweetened, grainy pils malt backing. Flavor is similar. Clean, grassy and floral citruses with a lightly sweetened, grainy pils malt backing. Finishes dry, clean, and lightly bitter with a touch of pils malt sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a tasty pils. Well balanced with a nice grassy and floral citrus alongside a lightly sweetened pils malt backing. Enjoyable beer.
