This was Terrapin's summer release, obvious with the red, white and blue imagery on the bottle, perfect for Independence Day. Perfect for the whole year, actually. This is a pilsner the way it should be. Nice and malty, you can taste a nice touch of hops too, and it's 7.5% abv, but you wouldn't know it. The alcohol is pretty deceptive. And it looks fantastic in a pilsner glass, with a nice dark golden color. Not as good as the Rye Squared in their Monster Beer Tour, but it's still quite good in its own right.
