Pours a hazy light yellow gold color with a white head. Nose is wheaty and grainy as expected. Taste is wheaty and grainy as well with a long grainy aftertaste.
Not a big Pilsner or lager fan , so hard to rate unbiasedly ! But not for me. Quaff Score 5 / 10.

2015 BJCP Category: 5D German Pils
AROMA: Medium-low light sweet grainy malt with a touch of honey and graham cracker. Faint spicy/floral hops. Clean fermentation. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Banana yellow hue; hazy body. Small white foam mostly dissipates. 2/3
FLAVOR: Mild palette of blonde malt. Much less sweet than nose indicates. Faint graham cracker character. Fairly strong honey flavor, though this is most likely oxidation. Finishes with a lightly spicy/pepper hop taste and dry bitterness. Mostly clean aftertaste. Not bad, but rather boring for the style. 12/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-low CO2. Seems too calm and tepid for the style. Does not take full advantage of its 6% ABV potency. Feels like something lighter. A little too bland to session. 2/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: A beer that is inspired by a German pils rather than a proper example of the style. Drinkable, but far from exciting. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 30/50
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is grass, floral, earth. Medium body, lemon zest, grass, nice bitterness, very good. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2017
My Bottom Line:Rperez (268) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2016
This purely malty Pilsener-cum-Helles is, in a way, the bread baguette of the beer world. Not the freshest of baguettes, mind you, but a decent one to accompany charcuterie and sot cheeses.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the deep yellow shine.
-Mild DMS is found throughout.
-The finish lacks a hop kick.
-Drinkability is high, but this isn’t a memorable example.
Great beer, these guys are killing it !! Their beer can designs are probably the best! Love it
