A very nice Pilsner. Aroma is pure Pilsner, which surprised me because it seems to be a relatively ícheapí beer, I think I paid $9 for 1.3l. The flavour isnít quite as deep as the aroma but makes up for its *slight* lack of depth with a very refreshing clean crispness. I think Iím going to be seeing more of this.

3fourths (9108) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 A rough beer that comes across as a pretender. Saccharine / rice cake and barley husk pale malt nose with little to no hop aroma and an off-putting notebook paper staleness. Mild notes of salty brine. Fizzy carbonation, rough and grating malt. Lack of esters shows itís actually bottom-fermented but I would guess it only lagered for 2-3 weeks given itís coarseness. Sweet and sour rice cake pale malt finish. Filtered gold with a short head. From draft.

Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and malt, leading to a bitter finish.

On tap @ Sprig & Fern, Nelson. The aroma has citrus, some grain. Clear, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is crisp, clean, has lots of citric hop flavour. Some grainy tones. Good pilsener,
