Draft at Elysian Fields. Pours medium gold, crystal clear, with definite bubble columns rising. Moussy thick white film. Kind of a mess on the nose--butter and dust and not so much of the grass that would be so nice to find here. Mid-palate is full and lovely with lots of spice and pepper and grass. Clean and easy drinking like a pils, but has sooo much American hop across the finish--a nice, clean, lingering cling, that.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

pours with a large, creamy head; light amber, dull, slightly hazy body, esp. for a pils; light grapefruit and grassy hop and a touch of malty sweetness in the aroma; decebt and balanced flavor: mellow, tasty, earthy and floral, nice bitter finish; moderate body.

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.
