Tap @ Lost Dog - McLean. Pours clear gold with a small, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is Pils and straw malt, spicy earthy hops and a clean lager character. Flavor is malt dominant with medium hops and bitterness with a clean lager character and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Growler from Growlers to Go in Richmond The pils poured a clear gold color with a big frothy head. There was nice lacing down the glass. You detect pale malts and some honey. The taste has cereals and floral hops The pils had a medium body with average carbonation. This is a nice beer with a crisp dry finish.

Deaughg @ Albion. Clear pale yellow with small white foamy head, faint doughy aroma, high carbonation, bitterish yeast taste, abrupt finish with enduring bitterness on palate. Not a great pilsner

12 oz. can into a pilsner Canned on 04/17/15 so only 2 weeks old. I am excited to finally get to try this since I’ve heard good things a bout it for years but never saw it in NC. A: pours a pretty clear pale gold with a tall fine white head and slightly above average amount of carbonation. Very nice lacing. S: Herbal or floral hop scent with sharp malt crackers or sourdough just below. T: Crisp crackers up front. Sharp hop bite follows. Kind of spicy/peppery hop flavor. Slight biscuit note as it warms. Great balance. M: Light bodied, crisp and stiff going down. Refreshing to say the least. Nice bubble scrub. Finishes very clean and dry. O: I have to say this was worth the wait! Nice bracing, refreshing pilsner with the low ABV (4.5%) that I particularly like. Very well done. I’m glad i bought a whole 12 pack and will buy more. Excellent!

Nose is spicy noble hop, crackery malt, lemon zest. Flavor is same, very delicate and well balanced. Could be a tad more substantive

Pours an anemic pale straw from a bottle. Aroma is a sweet light floral hoppiness. Flavor is slightly skunky, might have been a shelf turd. Meh.
