Tap. Deep golden pour - hazy with a thick white head. The nose is lightly crackery. Distinct pilsner malt aroma. A lightly spicy aroma with a distinct Saaz bite. Peppery and floral with a light citrusy character. Zesty and spicy. Excellent mouthfeel with a nice soft lingering bitterness. Peppery and crackery. Great stuff.

I am reviewing this with notes, and yes I had it from a bottle in October. I was fooling around with the smutty brewers saying they were trying to one up Tod Mott on this one, after the great Pills Tod brewed. So they slipped me a bottle to try. I poured this into a Pills glass and I was greeted with a two finger head on top of a clear golden yellow brew.
The bready aromas of yeast starts this one off followed with some nice lemon citrus hops. I did get a slight, I mean slight toast or roast in the nose as well.
I love lagers I wish my local breweries’ did more. The subtle sweet bready malts along with the delicate grassy hops are delightful. I think the clean and crisp aspect of the brew make this an awesome drinking brew. The slightly drying hop finish completes it. This brew would be way to easy to drink mass quantities of. I hope to see more of this next year.

Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, bready malt, floral hops. Flavor of bready and starchy malts, light bitter hops, light sweet fruits. Pretty tasty pilsener, very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2012 Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours light gold with a modest, white head. Lovely, crisp malt aroma with some faint, grassy hops. Fairly sweet flavor with bread and a grassy bitterness. Light to medium in body with lively carbonation. Finishes very crisp, lightly dry and sweet. Very, very good. (3.9)
Bottle shared at Sander’s in NYC on a night of aggressive drinking. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fine white head. Tangy white bread nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit of faint hay, some dry white bread. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat dry on the finish with mild grainy malts, hay and straw. It’s an OK American-made lager. (3.5)
