Overall Impression: 
17 / 20

Pouring with a bit of chill haze, the initial aroma is very clean with a touch of floral and spicy hops. The malt has both a honey note and a husky grain edge to it. The flavor is very much like the aroma with just a bit of hop spice and biscuit malt. Halfway through a very clean presentation the bitterness creeps in and is firmly in charge through the dry, palate-cleansing finish. The overall impression is that of a thirst-quenching Pils with a substantial parting shot of bitterness to encourage the next sip. This is a great everyday beer that drinks like a German Pils with the American accent of a lighter body and a stronger bitterness.
