4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear gold with a tall, chunky white head that has great retention and leaves very nice sheets of lacing ant every drink. Aroma is cereal, light toast, nice floral and honey notes, a touch of yeasty bread and straw. Flavor is slightly sweet cereal, toasted grain, honey, a great bunch of floral hops, a touch of grass, straw and a touch of toasted, crusty, yeasty bread. Just a touch of of bitterness and mineral notes to the finish. Palate is on the heavier side of light bodied with a creamy entry and middle, leading to a slightly dry, mineral feel to the finish and a light, velvety carbonation. A delicious, well crafted pils, my only complaints are that its a bit expensive at $5/500ml and only available at the brewery. I could drink this stuff all day.

500ml bottle thanks to Arbitrator on BA. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that fades to light foam. Aroma is that of a typical helles lager - grainy with sweet pale malt, honey, and hops. Flavor is sweet pale malt, honey, grain, and Noble hops. Very balanced. Nice light and crisp mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very drinkable and good for the style.

Clear straw colored pour with a thin white head. Strong crisp and clean cereal aroma. Slightly sweet with lots of cereal. Bitterness grows as the beer sits in the mouth with very bitter grassy hop finish. Fantastic pilsner. I could drink this all day.
