12 oz. bottle in a pilsner glass. Appearance is straw color with a golden hue and moderate white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, and bright noble hops. Taste follows the nose. A pretty solid pils.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a pilsener glass. While the head is abundant, a bready, biscuity, toast aroma emanates. The toast aroma lingers as a very light caramel and citrus poke through. A noticeable pineapple / tropical fruit note comes through after awhile with a touch of pepper. The beer is a beautiful, clear, effervescent, sparkling straw gold color with a white, gelatin-like head consisting of small and micro bubbles. The head retains well with a nice puffy, creamy coverage atop the beer, and it leaves an ample, messy webbing lace. It’s a prominently bitter beer, medium / medium-high levels, with a light sweetness to support it. The medium-full body has an active, yet soft carbonation in above-average quantity. It’s a light, grainy texture that dry, crisp, and refreshing. The mouthfeel is primarily toasty and peppery which carries to the finish. The aftertaste is grain husk with a strong, bitter grapefruit membrane. After awhile a burnt toast and pineapple show up in the lingering aftertaste.

It’s golden yellow. Great hops. Smells sweet and grain. Barley and strong bitterness taste.

Picked this up as part of a build your own 6 pack. Been looking to try this brewer after reading an article about how they work with veterans. High hopes, but slightly disappointed. A hoppy pilsner just does not work for me.

355ml bottle. A pilsner interpreted through American craft style. Strong noble hop flavour. Some pretty good stuff.

Very refreshing! Light floral hops, citrus, grains and light caramel. A bit herbal and lemony in the finish. Really good example of how far you can push the style.

I love the caramel and Saaz aroma of this beer. The body is very full without being heavy. Great finish with lots of lingering bready flavor .

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A good dose of flowery hops with a hint of citrus. Light grainy aroma. No Esters, DMS, or sulfur. Appearance is a brilliant straw color with a white head with average head retention. Malt flavor is grainy with some pils sweetness through the middle, but finishes dry. Hop flavor is the showcase in this beer providing hints of flower and spice with a bitterness that lingers through and after the finish. Beer is fermented clean with no fruity esters. Mouthfeel is medium-light with medium carbonation that leaves a drying resin sensation on the mouth on the end. Overall, a great American version of a German pilsner.

Pours clear golden with small white head out of bottle. Aroma of apple juice, pine, grass, honey, and some hops. Great flavor of bread, oats, grass, and hint of hops. Good beer for a pilsner.
