COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear, light gold with a white head of foam that dissipates at a moderate rate. The aroma is a little corny with notes of fusels and rubbing alcohol. The taste is nearly abrasive bitterness that sweetens up as the beer warms. Phenolic. Medium to high carbonation.

Pours clear light gold. Honey, citrus notes on the nose. Earthy, fruit flavors, suggestive of straw and lemon. Not a fan of pilsner in general, and this one was nothing special.

Straw colored beer with a thin white head that dissipates into a light surface film. Musky nose with a bit of sweetness and a lot of funk. Flavor is clean with a medium bitterness and not much more. Not sure why I picked this up as it is not one of my favorite styles and this provides nothing noteworthy. It does have decent body and an overall crispness I guess.

On tap at The Bearded Lady. Super light pour with little to no head. Aroma is grain and light hops. Taste is pilsner-esque.

jlruthven (587) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Tap at Craftsman Table & Tap. Pours light golden, clear as day, soapy white head. Good noble hop nose, bready, very floral. Mouthfeel borders on thin, but a lively carbonation enhances the biscuity malt profile. Very, very easy to quaff. Good effort.
