Draft at Closed for Business. Clear straw pour with a small white head. Grassy, piney hop aroma with clean grainy pale malts. Flavor is essentially the same with a bit more sweetness to it. Clean easy drinking beer and not too shabby in the heat.

Smell and taste were really well balanced. Taste of malt with a slight hop character. Would have rated higher if pilsener was my styles

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours lightly hazy orange with a nice sized white head. The aroma has semi-sweet bready malt, light fruit, bit of grassy/spicy hops and mild candy. Medium body that starts off pretty thick for a pilsner, but the fairly sharp carbonation gives a bit crisper character to the finish. The flavor starts off pretty malty and sweet for a pils, but there is some grassy, spice and sulfur offsetting it from becoming too sweet. There is a breadiness at first, then when the hops kick in more towards the end it gets more of a cracker aspect. The finish really shows off the grass and sulfur a lot. This is a nice pilsner, but as the label states this pretty pricy for a pils & I don’t see return visits since I can get solid pils for a lot less. Still a nice one to try.
