Postmortem Brew Review
Clear golden yellow color.
Dry, grassy smell with citrus twinge. Some hops on nose.

Tightly bubbled, white foamy two finger head.

Spots and streaks of lacing on the glass.
Grassy flavor with slight lemon and slighter biscuit dryness.
Moderate carbonation.
Light, clean taste. Tight, dry and refreshing.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Truly a unique and refreshing pilsener beer from here in the U S of A.  This is a no brainer replacement for any other yellow beer you've tried from the big three.  There's more flavor, twists and turns of some citrus and much better finishing hops than in other yellow pils. The only thing better than this one in the bottle would be to visit them at the brewery in lovely Ft. Collins. Try one fresh off the tap.

If you are not a fan of pilseners, I urge you to try this one.  It is crafted as well as any European pilsener and you'll wonder why others lag on such clean and refreshing taste.  Well done, New Belgium!
