12 oz bottle, unknowingly purchased at the ripe age (apparently) of 2+ years from Spirit Haus (home of (in)advertantly aged beers) in Amherst, MA late August 2006 (for a shiny new dollar out of a reduced-price basket) and consumed in September 2006 just out of the fridge from a Christoffel glass. I wasn’t on the ’net when I drank this and hadn’t even looked it up so had no idea of its possible age....it poured out a beautiful thick snowy head, slow-diminishing atop the effervescent dark gold body and leaving chunks of thick lace....the nose, enormous fresh Saaz hops, new-mown hay, clover honey, pretty simple and standard really but gold-standard well-done, clean and delightful....some odd pungency in the flavor and a little more alcohol apparent than you’d expect, faint grapiness but the nice lightly honey’d malts and persistent mineralic/grassy bitterness work pretty well, the body is light but strong enough to support the big hoppy bite at the finish....carbonation, not surprisingly, on the low side. Wow, was this really a couple of years old? A pils? And it held up this well? Jesus H Christ, I guess we don’t know all there is to know about aging beer yet, do we?

I think this was a fine pilsner - darker in color than expected. Very nice firm sourdough malting, and quite refreshingly hoppy. Earthy.

Light golden hue. Clean white head. Crisp and refreshing hop finish. Kinda thin, nothing spectacular.
