Smutty always does a great job with classic Old World beer styles and this is no exception. Light bitterness with crisp Saaz hops. Nice malt balance which gives it a German character and rounds out the palate, similar to a Dortmunder. Carbonation is pretty high.

TimE (5451) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 10, 2017
Very cloudy medium golden color. Lots of noble hops, acetone and cream corn in the nose - though it wasnt horrible. Dry mouth with lots of cereal malt and cream corn. Not bitter enough but otherwise an interesting pils.

Bottle from the bottom of my fridge, with a curry. When the days nearly done and theres a spicy tikka masala in front of you, who doesnt just want a straightforward, clean lager? This is that lager. Its got no detectable yeast aroma or off flavors, just a delicious, light, clean malt backbone and a lemongrass hop bite.

Taster pour from keg at NH Brew Fest. Appearance is clear, pale yellow (urine-like) with minimal sparkle, fizzy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is mild, crackers and yeast. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with slippery texture, average carbonation with cracker and yeast crisp finish. Overall, light and refreshing. Not too much to it, but nothing objectionable.
