Inspired by the pilsners of the Rhine region, this lager is a tribute to the spicy, crisp and clean character of German noble hops and has just the right malt body to balance. Named aptly for the Cleveland slogan "Progress & Prosperity"

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 5/7/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit fruity/yeasty in the aromas, but not overwhelming. Taste of big lemon, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation, increasing through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a delicious German pilsner style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering, and pristine style example.

Boardman,Oh - Vintage Estate Wine and Beer - 12 bottle. Slight haze to the medium golden pour, soft, snow white head. Aroma has some grainy accents, a touch of grassiness. Solid pilsener flavor, some breadiness, hint of honey sweetness. Decent crispness to the mouthfeel.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle. Nose is very grassy and grainy, a bit skunked at first. Pour a lightly hazy yellow-golden with a soapy bright white head, a hint of leg. Taste medium bitter with wonderful noble hops, not quite into Czech spagh funk but getting there, deeply entwined with caramel, grass, and lighter green notes, fresh Pils grain character that never actually ever leads to breadiness. Minimal citrus but there is a hint of sunshine, and though the heavy fat body is too full for what I think a pilsner should be, its clean and refreshing. [2016.08.03: 3.1]

Crisp, clean, yet tasty, this pilsner is nicely balanced to be easy drinking yet enough body to know that youre not drinking the beer you drink while mowing the lawn.

tia (2073) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Tap @ brewery. Golden with thin white head and decent lacing. Smells of honey and wheat. Flavor is more to the honey side with a lightly astringent bitter follow up.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Tap at the brewpub in Cleveland, OH. Good lacing on a clear golden pour. Higher carbonation. Red apple nose, yellow apple. Cidery and stale. Taste is cidery, stickier for style. Another great beer for identifying common brewing flaws. This one was less offensive than some of the DMS laden offerings.
