Tasted from bottle at Sean and Ryan’s party. Pale yellow color. Good pilsner. Lightly hoppy. Clean tasting with no off flavors. Was told at party that Prima Pilsner is the best. I need to go try that.

Draft at the brewery: pour is golden amber with a white head, some hops in the aroma but I couldn’t pick up a lot else, taste was mildly hoppy, smooth and dry. Very nice beer and the first one in this style for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Max’s. Pours a hazy pale straw color; bright white head with fine-bubbled lacing; very nice pour. Very pleasant, dry herbal and mineral hoppiness in the aroma; some sticky resinousness and juiciness from the hops, but otherwise dry. Medium mouthfeel: lively carbonation; spicy, herbal and mineral bitterness; dry, toasty core, showing a touch of breadiness and chewy malts; excellent dry pils with generous, intricate hoppiness.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Hazy pale blonde colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is very fresh and bright. Loaded with fresh zesty lemony saaz hops. Bright floral aromatics, fresh crisp pilsner malt and a kiss of sulfury crispness. Light bodied with a crisp bitterness and lingering floral/zesty hoppy aromatics. This beer is made for summer.

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a slightly-cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is malt with saaz haps and a slight citric characteristic. Taste is the same, remaining crisp, smooth, and drinkable throughout. Very solid pils beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Blind Tiger in NYC. This one a most pleasant surprise. Pours hazy yellow with a dense white head. The aroma has pale pils malt, a touch of lemon and a full and rich aspect not seen in most pils. Smells delicious. Medium body that is crisp but and a nice fullness as well with nice soft gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with a full pils malt and some biting hop bitterness. The finish is very clean. Fantastic beer.
