    Not a huge fan of lagers and, more specifically, pilsners in general. Therefore my review may be skewed. I will do my best.

    Pours crystal clear with a wispy white head that is fleeting. Coating lacing that mostly recedes back to level. Reminents of said lacing a re thick and sticky. Effervescent.

    Aroma is grassy, mostly, and floral hops. There is a cracker/bread malt backbone that hints at sweetness. Suggestions of spice: black pepper. No sulfur (good).

    Taste brings cracker maltiness at first. It quickly gives way to floral and grassy hops. Long lingering bitterness and spiciness.

    Light body with solid supporting carbonation. Crisp. Somewhat dry,

    The long lingering bitterness and spice detract from the crispness of the beer, making it hard to session. Seemingly a bit misplaced. A solid beer. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Expect a robust, slightly sweet malt character on the front of the tongue, notes of alpine flowers and just-baked bread as it goes back through the palate. A clean, mildly bitter finish to round things off. A delicious classic pilsner. Hops: Mt. Hood, Saaz.
