3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Taproom in PB. Wow, this is a Pils?!? Color is golden with a slight haze and no head to speak of. Okay, I get the pilsner character in the aroma, toasty, lightly grainy malts with a hint of soap but a brash, citrus hop profile that also features herbal hints. Flavor also betrays the pilsner pedigree, aligning with the characteristics described earlier, hops dominate though, with an orange and grapefruit juiciness. Palate is light to medium in body, with assertively prickly carbonation. Overall an enjoyable and briskly refreshing brew.

On tap at Earth Bread and Brewery in Mt. Airy USA. Pours just like a pils; nuff said. Mouthfeel is slightly overcarbonated but smooth and crisp. Aroma of honey and grass. Taste is like sucking on the end of a lawnmower, grass, grass, grass. Some honey too. A great pilsner if you like the specific flavor. Quality is just top notch. This is not a pils for those who don’t like flavor, it grabs your tongue.
