Really love these summer beers. Yellow colored pour with a white head. Smells like a standard pilsner with a good amount of hops. Taste is smooth and refreshing, reminds me of prima pils. Really could drink this year round. I hope it becomes a standard offering.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Very fresh bottle, best by 10/24/13. Nose is sweet and floral, sickly/hazy pale yellow-golden body with a sudsy bright white head. Light/watery body with light mineral character, spice, light bitterness creeping up to medium, strong/firm crispness, some nice noble hops. Crisp and refreshing. This is a good pils, but I just had Great Lakes’ a few hours ago and it squishes this out of any conversation.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
7/16/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Ah, a real rating and not a backlog rating. Feels nice... and from my couch, too. Real nice. Anyway, it pours mostly clear golden, very slight chill haze, with a nice fluffy almost pure white head that cuts 1/4 but lasts and laces well. Bready malts, some biscuit, grassy hops, a spicy bite, and a touch of green apple. Lightly sweet, bready entry, some apple, and a grassy hop bite. I was hoping for the world with this one, and it looked so nice, but it disappointed a touch. Not bad, though!

Aroma has some grainy notes, a hint of grassiness, some light allspice spiciness, Flavor has a buttery profile with some slight nuttiness, some grainy notes and just a hint of saffron-like spiciness. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty solid overall.
