This pilsner is an early American style lager which was popular in the U.S. prior to Prohibition. They brewed this beer in the traditional style using a small percentage of flaked maize (corn). Because these beers were typically brewed by German immigrants, it uses traditional German Hallertau Hops. This is the pubs’ first lager in three years. This beer is crisp, hoppy, and full of flavor.

Draught. Urine yellow with thin white head--a lively brew. Aroma is fresh soul and grain, also lemon. Flavor is pretty bland with light bitterness in back-half after a sweeter and lightly fruity beginning.

3fourths (8699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2010
draft at mountain sun in boulder. filtered and clear gold, small white head. quiet nose of sweet corn and toasted pils malt, light saltine cracker, light white bread crust, very mild aromatic hops, mostly dry/dusty. sharp and bright approach, biscuit malts throughout, very mild hop bitterness, some plastic/latex flavors. carbonation becomes loose and disjointed in the finish.
