COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

Probably my go to pilsner. Bottle. Gold. Lemon, grains, toast, a touch of honey. Extremely drinkable, light, medium carb - (done from memory because the rate I posted last night didn’t save for some reason)

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.

ARH (381) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Decent smooth taste, slight hops on finish, slightly sweet and malty, very good balance!

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 .

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.
