Pours somewhat clear lemon color and bubbly. The aroma brings sweet, wheat crisp malt notes, light and pleasant for the style. Flavors of lightly crisp sweet crystal malts start, continue, and finish so smoothly on the. Palate. The subtle hop flavor helps round out the brew.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a pilsner glass. Pours clear yellow-golden with a nice white head. Good retention and plenty of lacing. The nose carries a good dose of continental hops. A bit spicy with nice floral character. Delicate. Flavor has crisp malt underneath some biting hops. Good floral hop presence throughout. Very crisp and concise. A very well done pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at CK. Good thing because I would never go to a Phish concert. Clear golden to straw pour. Weak head formation. Creamed corn DMS and diacetyl in the nose. Taste is suddy, soapy, and richer corn flakes and small oatmeal. Creamed corn DMS throughout. Typical raw, grain heavy, American prohibition style lager. Grits, corn, oatmeal. With decanting, diacetyl cleans up a bit. Less slick on the palate. Tangy and lemon heavy. Rich and refreshing. Like the Hip Helles, not sure if these off flavors are intentional or unintentional. DMS is a pretty common off flavor for cool fermentation. I liked it regardless.
