Tap @ brewery. Yellow with thin light head. Smells like about dough bread and citrus. Not much on the sweet end but a nice light bitterness. Feels a tad watery on the front, and had a tad of the sweetness coming in too hang on at the back end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hardywood. Pours a clear bright golden yellow color with sudsy white head that fades to a wisp and light lacing. Aroma is fruity lager yeast sweetness, light malt complexity and a kiss of hop bitterness. Flavor is characteristic pilsner, delicious and quenching. I’m not normally a fan of the style, but there is something to be said about having this fresh at the source. Active carbonation and sweet finish with notes of corn swetness make this stand out.

Really surprised by just how good this is. Nice near clear copper yellow pour with good khaki head. Grassy/noble hop profile marries well with the breadiness of pilsen malt. Bitterness lingers quite a bit. Pretty good job for the style I would say.
