Bottled 11/05/13. A golden beer with a good white head. A grassy hoppy nose which proceed to the mouth where they are joined by malts which tend towards butteriness. It’s a reasonable lager but fairly plain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a light golden amber color with a huge billowy white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave some light bits of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is mostly a mix of a grainy and bready smell with that of some fruity aromas. The fruit aromas are heaviest of a lighter harvest fruit nature consisting of some apple and pear. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of a caramel and a hint of yeast as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor mixed with a little bit of the lighter fruits that were detected in the nose. As the taste moves forward the fruity tastes fade with a more grainy and haylike taste taking the fruits place. This leads to a drying out of the flavors of the brew and makes for a rather crisp taste. With a touch of an herbal taste coming at the very end, one is left with a crisp and clean flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin with a carbonation level that is average to a bit on the higher side. This feel is fantastic for the crisp and grainy flavors of the brew and makes for one refreshing feel overall.
Overall – This is a very nice and crisp pilsner. Not sure why this in Monday’s choice, but this is certainly a nice brew for a hot summer day.
