Borgata (Brickway) Pils

This 4.8% ABV pilsner beer is from the Brickway Brewery (formerly Borgata until an East Coast casino of the same name threatened to sue them) of Omaha, Nebraska.  I had heard of the brewery, but did not realize they had any can offerings; I thought they were draft only at this point.

The beer pours clear golden yellow, with over an inch of thick white foam. The aroma is grains, bright, spicy, floral, touches of honey and fruit. The taste follows the aromas, well balanced, grain, sweet, but not too sweet, a bit of straw and grass, with notes of honey. The finish is crisp and dry with a light to moderate bitterness. This is one tasty and drinkable American pils.
