Fresh noble hops and cracker-like, lightly bready Pils malts are initially in the forefront. The hops have a tangy, floral character that sits atop an unexpected peach/pear fruitiness with a touch of honey. The flavor kicks off with a gently grainy malt that has a slight Graham cracker sweetness. The spicy hop flavor washes through as the malt fades, and the bitterness and alcohol combine to dry the finish, leaving an herbal hop
aftertaste. The aftertaste leans toward clean, spicy hops that are bitter without becoming harsh. Overall, a crisp quenching Pilsner that goes down easy.
