(Bottle) Pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma holds grassy, herbal and morning dew-ish hops alongside bready and hay-like malt. The flavour is light sweet to dry, near medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of grass, herbs, hay and bread. The mouthfeel is super clean and fairly soft with a medium carbonation. Clean, balanced and super yummy. Near medium bodied.

"A rather untraditionally full bodied pilsner. Dry bready and a bit sweet, with some grassy hops and hay and a slight tartness to make things interesting. Not bad. "

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Yellow, low carbonation. Almost no head; very dry with lots of hops, and much more like something from the Czech Republic and Germany. Very good.

Hazy blonde, nice thick head, has a herbal, fruity, sweet, richly malty, only subtle herbal hops, just fat malt. More a helles, but a good one. Bit yeasty, too, so I guess more of an U Bier.

Dark orang. 1 finger white head. Harsh piney lemon juice nose. Huge mouthfeel. Creamy so great mouthfeel. Awesome astringent pine cone and lemony yeasty sort of coats the tongue and never leaves. Bursting with a ton of grassy and old lemon rind

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Beercraft. Lightly hazy gold, with no head in the mini snifter. Aro.a is damn spot on for the style! Saaz hops, grassy with pale grain and light lager yeast. Flavor is just light and refreshing with a ton of Sazz bitterness and a light pale grain balance. Damn fine for a Pils!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Amazingly clean, solid pils. Nose is lager yeasty, biscuity, striking hop scent. Tastes like a perfect pils with hoppy presence - resiny bitterness lingers at the end.
