Gorgeous color of peach nectar--slightly hazy with wonderful cratered head that had peaks like an Alaskan ice floe. Aroma is of young fresh hops and very slight yeastiness--interesting but almost strident. This is aggressively hopped for a pilsener, but has plenty of body beneath the assertive top-end. I only wish the malt provided more of a flavor counterpoint to the prevailing bitterness. The finish is quite clean, mildly dry and with Saaz spice hints. An interesting beer with unusual characteristics for a pilsener. If the flavor balance were a bit more malt-biased, this would be a top contender.

Tap. Hazy yellow w diminishing white head. Min lace. Aroma was weak. Flavor of Urquel type pils with the minerals noticable. A bit of sweetness noticable early on but fading quickly into a nice tart bitterness that lasts into the finish. Just a touch viscous and creamy. Nice pils flavor for me. It hit the spot with a caesar salad on this hot day. If I’m in the mood for a decent pils, I will not hesitate to enjoy more.

Very good for the style. A very smooth german style pils.. not a lot of hops. I stll prefer the Urquell for the balanced hops, but this beer was very drinkable and had a nice unoffensive flavor. Not something to blow you away, but that is typical of the Pilsner style. A very nice selection.
