Clean lemon and crisp malt nose. The taste is fairly dry, lightly buttery with lots of fresh grassy hops, crackery malts, light lemon and a touch of hay. Long bitter finish.

Crystal blonde with a decent head. Soft, hazy malted nose with light graininess. Grainy body with a pleasant tannic, sour-bitter finish. One of the better German pils examples out there.

01.13.06 Tap at Princeton location. Rich and bright golden color under ample, lasting, and stickily lacing white head. Lush and coating palate full of cracker and grass. Full of crackin hops. Smart and cleansing drink with the grilled ham and cheese they’re trying to pass off as a cubano sandwich. Loses it’s body quickly as it approaches room temp.

Sampled at the Newtown Brewfest 07 with Stegosaurus. These guys are growning on me. Gold pour with hoppy citrus aroma. Mild hoppy tastes that finish bitter but good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
New Hope location. Clear, deep straw body with a collapsing sudsy white head. Rich continental pils malt aroma with melon and citrus tones plus some light hay. Good pils malt flavor with lemony highlights and a lightly numbing, antiseptic finish. Clean, well-lagered character overall. Nice, smooth, quenching mouthfeel. A solid brewpub pilsner.

sample at the Philly location on 1/19/08. my least favorite of the 8 I sampled... not that great.... or maybe it’s me not liking German pilsners all that much. golden in color, slightly hoppy... the finish is disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap in New Hope. Clear light amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is of hops, some DMS I think and malts. Taste is bready and dry malts, with a crisp dry hop finish.

On draft at the Newtown Brewfest with the Mad_Indian. Pours pale golden with a decent size white head. Aroma of pale malts, citrus, grassy and herbal hops. The flavor is grain, light, well balanced bitterness, with a long dry finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at the brewpub. My real complaint with this was that I got it served in a pint glass and that did nothing to the aroma and appearnce of a pilsner. Pretty good taste and well balanced. Very crisp and smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden color with a medium fizzy head. Aroma is nice and malty with some grass, sweet pils malt, and a nice hop bitterness. Taste has a nicely hopped flavor to go with a crisp & smooth finish. Well done.
