New brewery. Old mastermind. Give him some flowers and seeds and a tank and let him work his magic. Immediate grand achievements in the "pale beer with depth and finesse" category -- pilsner, saison, and white ipa. Here with an Ol’ Factory Pils 12oz bottle. Right up there with Victory, Lagunitas, Oskar, or Sly Fox, with the hops being a shade less on the flavor factor and a shade greater on the drying factor. Wonderful slightly creamy center tapers long and lean to an unobtrusive clean herbiness. Guzzle in June. Bathe in July.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, pale golden. Extremely floral, like chinese tea, chrysantemum, rosehips. Like drinking flowers. Quite bitter, needs more malt.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A super dry and super hoppy Pils. This may be a little bit more hopped than a typical Pils, but who cares? The hops they use appear to be Noble, and not the type of hops one would associate with a west coast IPA (which many American craft-brewers do with their versions of Pils). Very lingering but not overpowering bitterness. Dry. This is a very fine attempt at a German Pils, something I have rarely encountered with other attempts from American brewers. Perhaps the best American Pils I have had, even better than the slightly over-hyped Heater Allen. Bravo to this Connecticut brewer. I will have to try more of their brews, because if you can make a great Pils, then you can make anything.

Can in a mixed 12 pack thanks to Clay. Pours a hazy golden with light white head. Aroma is lemon and hay with a slight citrus hop. Taste is sweet, almost a little sour pils. Hops are there but nothing super hoppy.

Dry finish. A little thin. A little over hopped for a pilsner. Drinkable but not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark straw from a can with significant white head with medium bubbles. Aroma is slightly like moist leaves, flavor is crisp clean malt, covered over with a slightly mildewy blanket or something like that, just a little bit funky. Okay beer.
