This is a beautiful pale golden lager (Judged as BJCP Category 5D - German Pils) but was reminiscent of a Czech pilsner but hoppier with a more American twist. It has a huge thick frothy white head that lasted quite some time. The aroma showcased a floral, earthy hop blended with light DMS and a gentle crackery pilsner malt profile.  The flavor was clean and crisp, well made with no esters followed by an agressive lingering earthy hop bitterness.  A great drinking beer for a hot summer day while at the lake or just relaxing in your yard.
