Made with Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops, this summer-friendly selection—available in bottles and cans—is crisp, clean and so easy to enjoy. It's a great representation of a classic Pils with an American twist (hops), showcasing the style's classic clean, malty core with an overlay of vibrant, citrusy and slightly astringent hop characteristics. Citrus, bread dough, sweet grass, soda cracker and a hint of fresh pine weave throughout the nose and mouth, framed by brisk carbonation and a medium-bodied mouthfeel. The hops take center stage on the finish, expressed in flavors of pine and citrus peel, suggesting a bit more of an IPA-like close than that of a Pils. Lauren Buzzeo
