Clear and dark golden. Paper and grass in flavor. A bit harsh in its bitterness with a bit balancing sweetness.

at brewpub The aroma, being almost non-existent, led me to think that the taste would be missing as well. But I’ve never tasted a beer exactly like this one, it’s like a really good lager beer. Not much head either. The mouthfeel is a bit thick too. Strange beer, but not bad

Growler courtesy of beastiefan2k; served in a pilsner glass. Pours a clear gold with a solid two-finger cap of dense, pitted, white head that drops leaving a substantial, sticky web of lace on its wake. The nose is all about the malt: biscuity, bready pils malt, much like unbaked, homemade biscuits. Any hops are virtually indistinguishable on the nose. The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied, softly carbonated and with an almost oily (think vinaigrette dressing) texture at the swallow, where a touch of hop bitterness help to prevent the malt from running unchecked and leads into a dry finish. The flavor is of a solid hit of biscuity malt and doughy yeast notes followed by a tight, spicy/grassy hop note that literally follows the malt profile more than it blends with it. While I enjoy the beer, its flavors definitely transition more than they integrate. That said, it’s still an interesting and tasty pils. Thanks for picking this up for me, Eugene

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2010 Via csbosox by way of a keg he bought of this. Pour is a perfectly clear golden with a one inch white head. Head falls pretty quick with some light lace. Aroma of very soft cereal grain, some light grainy malt, and not much else. Very faint nose. Taste picks up some from the nose, with a nice natural tasting cereal grain maltiness and a nice transition to floral and earthy hops. There is a really nice bright mineral aspect to the aftertaste that works for me. Palate is light bodied, nice level of carbonation and a clean mineral dry aftertaste which begs for the next sip. Nice one, good balance, clean and easy to drink - though I wish the nose had been a bit more assertive. Thanks for sharing some of the keg, Chris.

Picked this growler up to share at a party. And again as last time I was the only one drinking this. Its a dark golden/orange clear color. The beer is basically a white bread malts and medium-light herbal hops. Its really not different from their previous pils (Post Rock), just less hoppy and a different hop (I think). Its got a particularly nice biscuit-like maltiness in the flavor. This is the counterpart of the hoppy pils, its the nicely white-bread malts pils. I can drink this all night (after I am tired of ales and/or strong lagers).
