Postmortem Brew Review
Fairly clear yellow with a slight hazyness on the pour
Balanced malts and hops in the fragrance.

Tall foaming crisp white head that lasts.
Wonderful spiderweb lacing.
Tasty hops with refreshing body.
Light and easy to drink; refreshing.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Few beers are a maligned as the everyday pilsener.  When they are bad, they're awful and will test your tongues patience.  But when they are good, they can be a thing of beauty to behold.  Let me tell you, this is a beautiful pils!

I noticed the bit of haze in the pour that meant there was a lot going on in this glass.  It settled clear and with a tall crisp white head.  The preponderance of hops noticed in the nose was unexpectedly inviting and intriguing. I mean, yes, there are hops in pilsener beers, but these were oh so delacate and floral in aroma.  The taste was clean, dry and refreshing giving a soft 'twang' of hops.  This puppy has 40 IBU's under the hood!

Oohhhh I'm so sad I only picked up one bottle of these.  I would recommend pairing this with the other 5 I didn't buy. Sigh!
