Bauhaus Wonderstuff

This 5.4% ABV "Neo Bohemian Pilsner" is from Bauhaus Brew Labs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

The beer pours a pure and clear golden in color. There is over an inch of thick, white foam. The aroma is bright, citrusy, bread dough, grassy. The taste follows the aromas, hitting all the same notes, adding in some golden grain and very light straw, and the tanginess turns into fruitiness. The finish is the thrill of the bumper cars as all the wonderful flavors ram full speed into a car load of quite bitter grassiness. The beer drinks crisp, easy and refreshing. If this beer doesn’t put you in a good mood, I don’t know what will. It’s the most fun ride of a pilsner I’ve had in awhile.

This beer absolutely epitomizes the toast that is on all of their cans: "Gemutlichkeit!" (You'll have to look it up, like lots of German words, it does not have a straightforward English word-to-word translation.) I'll start with this when I make it to their tap room on my next trip to Minneapolis. Wonderstuff is Wunderbar!
