Our Impression:  German and Czech pilsners are easily some of our favorite beers, and are arguably some of the best beers in the world.  These styles have brought us on a long journey.  Brewing a perfect Pilsner requires vast knowledge in traditional lager brewing processes, and experience that comes with the trials of time.  We feel we have made great leaps in our brewing technique, and this beer in many ways represents the quality of our future beers.
