A very well balanced pilsener that I enjoy. Solid clean honey grain malt with noble hop harmony. It would be so crystal clear if it wasn’t for the foam

A solid light crisp aroma. On the maltier side for sure but a pretty good crisp finish. Dry but not that dry. Very clear

Very light, crisp pilsner with a spicy finish. The hops really shine in this pilsner...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
16 ounce pint - $5.25 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Served a perfectly clear, lemon-hued body housing steady streams of effervescence underneath a fine, snow white head.
Smell: Pils malt yielding accents of dough, gently toasted grains while the hops bring notes of spice, peppery herbs, and mild citrus.
Taste: Grainy pilsner maltiness, lightly doughy, grainy, with just enough sweetness. Spicy, herbal, minutely citrusy hops with sufficient bitterness to perfectly balance things out. Finishes smooth yet crisp.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. A notch above medium carbonation for a pleasing crispness.
Overall: Very refreshing, very enjoyable. I couldn’t care less about Phish if I tried, but this was a nice pils, SN.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Bright, crispy, kind of bagel aroma. Fresh and delicious. Biscuity, crunchy, fresh washed veggies. Easy drinking, perfect body. Great pils.

GABF 2011 - so excited for this - a lovely, fresh, dry and crisp pils - dry, crackery malt base serves the crisp, floral and grassy hops well - minimal sweetness and clean, lean maltiness throughout - finish is slightly peppery - just a flat out world class pils - kept going back for more - this isn’t in the regular line-up because?

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
[Draft at Super Ball IX} Clear golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of straw, light floral hops, grass, and toasted malt. Taste of straw, grains, some toasted pils malt, some grass, and a bitter noble hop finish. It’s unfortunate SN / Phish didn’t beg Ithaca to serve Stash IPA as the FOAM seemed to run out before the fest was even over. Added .3 to overall for the incredible weekend it was... and this is a respectable pils! Try it if you can find it. "We got FOAM!"

Tap at BT. Pours a light golden nearly clear with good carbonation and nice fluffy white head. Aroma is big fresh flowery hops, slight grassy, fresh cut hay, then nice clean biscuity bready pils malts, and cracker. Flavor is also high on the floral hops, slight grass, bigger than expected malt profile, clean malts- bready, a bit doughy, finish is not sweet but does not come through quite as crisp or snappy as many german pis, but instead finishes smooth and a bit malty/bready and resembles a hoppy helles overall. Still an awesome lager that I could drink a shit load of. Very nice.

Tap at Blind Tiger - man oh man. Hope this sees wider distribution, because it could definitely give Noble or Prima a run for it’s money. Nice crackery grains and sweet caramel malts. Nicely hopped, with floral aromatics and herbal spice that dries out in the finish. Perfect pils that leaves the tongue wanting more.
