Got a growler from the Maybank Pig. I saved it for my after lawn mowing cool down. Crisp and yet some complexity. Enjoyable though I may have been scoring a bit high because of the refreshment factor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Originally reviewed: 7/28/08. Had this on tap at Foothills. Came out a pale gold color, with minimal to absent head. Very little lacing along edge. Smelled somewhat woodsy and charred. Also some faint citrus. Well-carbonated. Crisp and clean. Not complex at all. I’m tasting some bread, a little lemon zest. Not a whole lot is being pulled out of this one. Aside from the simplicity of this brew, it is quite drinkable. Drinks very smooth and clean. Not a choice I’d pick for flavor, but for refreshment.

pour is a crystal clear golden orange with a rather tight creamy white head. The nose is pretty decent, a little heavy on the grain but adds notes of doughy bread and and some leafy green hops. The taste is slightly more balanced but still a touch heavy on the grain. Grain, doughy malts, some sweet caramel and honey transitions to some green leafy hop notes. The finish is faintly dry, highly carbonated and a bit rough on the back of the throat. Solid pilsner.

22oz bottle that my brother brought back from Charlotte, thanks Jeff! Pours a crystal clear, golden colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is grainy with a light, pale sweetness as well as some light lemon-grass, cracker, and a few florals. Flavor is straw and grass up front with a light lemon, a few florals, and a bit of a crackery malt. Gets a bit grainy in the middle with a light sweetness to the pils malts before the straw and lemon-grass dry this out with a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium, clean, crisp body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a solid pils. Crisp, clean, refreshing, and easy drinking with a solid flavor. Well balanced and enjoyable.

Draft. Nice golden pils with a small white head. Clean aroma with caramel malt. Balanced, hoppy German pils with the hops shining through the finish. Good stuff.

Medium amber with a light head and lace. Very well done. similar to Belhaven lager - sweet caramel malt well-balanced by light floral hops. Really nothing to it, but I found myself drinking it easily and comfortably. Quite enjoyable.

While Pilsner is not my favorite style it is hard not to appreciate how well this beer is made. Low in bitterness it is crisp and refreshing and is a great beer to convert the masses to the craft brew world which is all you can hope for. Had on tap in my shop in Wake Forest, NC. However, the newly released bottles are almost as good!

Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City Arrived a clear medium yellow with a decent head and good retention. Had more caramel malt taste that a lot of pilsners I have had. Bitterness was moderate with a crisp fairly dry finish. Overall an ok pils but not one of my favorites.
