Sometimes a modern craft version of a classic beer style is able to blow away trendy "beers of the moment." This brew accomplishes this in a big way. It's light-golden, crystal clear appearance comes across as quite striking, and the aroma profile of honeysuckle, clean pilsner malt, floral German hops and even a hint of jasmine almost seems too good to be real. Look for flavors dominated by crisp lager malts, light toasty notes, gorgeous noble hop flavors, a clean mouthfeel and perfect medium bitterness. There's even a hint of chamomile tea sweetened with a light touch of sugar. The lager's greatest appeal comes with the extremely pleasant, lingering, elegant German hop finish. A truly world-class beer.
