2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is super lightly colored, but does have a nice body, with great head retention. There’s an assertive hop aspect, but overall this is a biscuity, Germanic pils on par with so many classic examples. I’m flabbergasted that this is so highly rated vis-a-vis so many other outstanding pilsners. #5912, 1/3/2014)

Bottle at Brian's in Brooklyn. Light golden completely clear pour with thin frothy head. Aroma starts with standard pilsener but danker and a bit juicier. Taste too - like a pilsener but fuller body and bigger, rounder taste. Still maintains a dry bitter finish with some hops. Very good pilsener.
