3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear golden-yellow color with a thin, wispy white head that left some light lacing. Aroma of straw, bread, some light doughy yeast, and soft grassy hops. Smooth, crisp entry with some cereal and light straw that transitions into a light graininess that finishes lightly bitter with some soft grassy hops. Moderate carbonation and crisp mouth feel. Overall, a solid pilsner, but it seemed to lack some of the finesse and nuance that make others so enjoyable.
