Draft. Big grass aroma. Foamy lace. Flavors feature a surprisingly big malt sweetness cut by lemony citrus and a hint of sourdough. Slightly sour finish that lingers. What a beer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Church Key. Pours clear golden / yellow with a white head. The aroma has dough, light spice, pils malt and some mush. It has a medium smooth body for the style and a mild amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with very full maltiness, grassy hops, spice and clean pils malt. The finish has more hoppiness and is sharp and clean while still having malt helf. As it warm sulfur and grassiness come out more. Great pilsner.

On tap; glad to finally get around to rating.
Aroma has a nice sweet graininess to it with some white bread notes. A light floral hoppiness with a bit of a spicy woodsy note as well.
Pours a slightly hazy yellow straw color with a thick, creamy white head that exhibits nice retention as it slowly recedes. High lacing and small legs.
Flavor has a light sweetness with a nice grainy character and some bready notes. Medium light bitterness with some floral hop notes and a bit of a spicy hop character.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a very nice beer and I often go for this at bars but have never gotten around to rating. Easy drinking with great malt and hop balance.

Nice to pick out a hint of malt in a pils. I'm not a pils fan so but enjoyed the yeasty note in the aroma. Seemed like it had a seaside quality to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Sycamore - San Francisco, CA. Moderate pilsner malt aroma from a shaker. This is solid, clean good pilsner. It’s got a great bristly noble hop edge to it that makes it slice through the palate cleanly. The malt development gives it good structure and the lingering bite of the hops is satisfying. However, this didn’t live up to my expectations. It’s good, very good, but it’s not dazzling, vibrant, and vivacious. It doesn’t have dark corners seeking to be found. It’s out there, straightforward, well brewed, but not a complex enigma, in my mind.
