COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a German style Pilsner. We take your traditional German Pils and add a good old American Hop Punch. This beer is clean, crisp and refreshing. This golden lager is the perfect beer for hot Virginia summer days.

Strykzone (5385) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2015
12 ounce can from a locals trade with nimbleprop. Clear golden with a small white head. I smelled lemons upon opening and there is some grass. Lemons are also tasted with soft malts and a dab of honey. This is a refreshing beer. Hops almost dirty things up with soft fruit and bitterness. A little spicy bitter bite at the finish. A nice version of a classic.

12oz can. Looks light. Aroma of dough and bread and pale malts and some light floral hops. Flavor the same. Lighter texture. Not that great of a beer.

obguthr (4427) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Can: Weak lemony nose. Clear yellow, thick head. Corn initially, quite grassy at midpalate and beyond. Metallic throughout. My initial impression was this was fairly macroish, but it turned out to be fairly well hopped, its saving grace.
