4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 oz. pour at Holy Grale. Aroma: Thoroughly grassy and a little peppery; semi dry crackery malts are pretty dialed back. Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow pour with lively carbonation holding up a rocky white head; the head settles into a thin skin. Flavor: Very grassy up front with cracker playing a bit bigger role; cracker fades towards the finish, which becomes more peppery and very dry. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: An excellent American pils; definitely one to try if you see it on tap.

Spalt Select. Very earthy, a bit heavier body and more lingering bitterness than prima pils.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught usually at Deep Ellum, over the years, most recently at Brava, 7/2/15
Clear, straightforward light-amber/gold body has a medium amount of fairly well-retained whtie head.
Noble hops! Wow. An American brewer still brewing a beer with non-American hops?? Hard to believe. Nicely attenuated pils malts lend honey and very light bread, while the spicy, leafy, fresh, herbal hops are neither over or underdone. Clean, straightforward and elegant with no flaws or alcohol.
Flavor provides snappy, spicy and herbal hops with a moderate amount of bitterness stretched across lean, but not too dry pils malt that give off honey and very light crackery/doughy flavors. Hay, straw, grass; all the delicious flavors of old world pilsners and every bit as clean and dry. Much less bitter/resinous/punchy than Prima and I almost always immediately order this when I see it. A real treat in its simplicity and freshness. Medium to medium light bodied, with a soft, yet well-carbonated texture.

Golden with a nice white head. Aroma of bread, crackers, grass, lemons. Flavor followed, nice firm hoppy finish and a little more dry than the Prima Pils. Moderate and refreshing body with the right level of carbonation.

On tap at the brew pub in Downingtown, PA. Pours light clear golden color with white head. Aroma is light malt, citrus, grassy floral hops. Flavor starts with a light earthy biscuity malt flavor and fades to a grassy, herbal, floral hop flavor with light lemon notes. Finishes with a nice citrus flavor with some yeastiness. Possibly the best Pilsner I’ve had. Really nice !
