From the bottle poured a deep golden brew with a generous white head. Medium/light bodied with aromas of malt and hops with hints of vanilla. Well balanced flavors of malt and hops. I like it.

A bottle of this fine beer came to me courtesy of Durhambeer!
Pours a very pale golden, perfectly clear, with a very small head.

The aroma is herbal and "robustly" hoppy. The malt sweetness while noticeable is either very low or hidden by the spicer & more herbal hop character.

The flavor is mineral-y & enjoyably bitter. The hops are well featured and of course very saaz-y with nice notes of grass, herbs, and mild fruit skin. The beer is only lightly sweet and very bright.

Beer 45 Asheville trip. Clear light gold, nice head. Aroma is crackery pils malts and floral hops. Flavor is a match, quite clean, with a bracing floral and slightly spicy hop finish. Really quite fantastic. Love finding a well made pils. Really a great beer to have fresh like this. A favorite from the trip.

Comes out of the bottle a strong, bubbly solar yellow with a fairly thick white head. For a pilsner, I say thatís good. Aroma is fairly strong, malty and yeasty with a hint of apple. Crisp, malty flavor has yeasty and bitter hoppy notes, a little hoppier than most pilses I have sampled. Texture is fairly fizzy, though it has about average body. At least itís not watery. A decent pils. This is not my favorite style, but Iíll try just about any craft beer.

Tap at Milltown. Pours sparkling golden. Denser white head. Sheety lacing. Nose is sharp lemon, gritty corn, herbal, fresh biscuit. Taste is snappy, crackery, small paper, sharp hoppiness. Solid. Not amazing. But on target. Too much newspaper/carbon is unfortunate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours clear golden yellow with medium white head. Taste is sweet grain with grassy and floral notes. Saaz hops is fresh but not as crisp as I would like. Quite full mouthfeel for a pils Still, nice but a bit harsh around the edges.

Tap. Light amber with small head. Sweet and rather full bodied for a pils. Big hoppy finish.
