On tap at Leon’s fine poultry and oysters. Seriously great pilsner- one of the best I have ever tried. Would happily drink an entire pint. Yellow pour with orange tint. Average carbonation. Super crisp and drinkable with distinct pilsner notes. Nice dryness on finish. Bready and grass notes. Pleasant resin quality. Just damn good.

Draught @ Bier-Bier. Aroma is sweet with grain, some grassy hops and peaches. Flavour has tropican fruits, grain and peaches. Finishes with grassy hops. Rather sweet and fruity for a pils. An "American pilsener."

Tap@ BierBier. Pours unclear amber, thick white head. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity, cellar wibes. Flavor has grainy malt, hops, citrusy notes, strong bitterness. Hoppy pilsener but heavy and hard to drink at the same time. I prefer the traditional German pilsener over this anytime.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber, nice rocky head. Zingy carbonation, small bubbles. Aroma is sweet malt, light hopping, taste is light malt, bitterness balancing but in the background. Finish is just slightly bitter. Doesn’t have what I would call lager taste, nor Pilsner, but it is fairly close to a good Pilsner. Balance is quite nice and the beer is definitely easy to drink. Finish is fairly dry.
