While Pilsner is not my favorite style it is hard not to appreciate how well this beer is made. Low in bitterness it is crisp and refreshing and is a great beer to convert the masses to the craft brew world which is all you can hope for. Had on tap in my shop in Wake Forest, NC. However, the newly released bottles are almost as good!

Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City Arrived a clear medium yellow with a decent head and good retention. Had more caramel malt taste that a lot of pilsners I have had. Bitterness was moderate with a crisp fairly dry finish. Overall an ok pils but not one of my favorites.
