Appearance- Golden straw color and not fully clear, but slightly cloudy. Barely produced a one finger head on a aggressive pour.

Aroma- Grassy, lemon, and grainy.

Taste- First sip reveals a nice snap of mild hop bitterness and carbonation. As with the nose the hops are grassy and citrusy, and then fade to a mildy sweet grain malt flavor. Finish is bone dry with mild bitterness lingering through.

Mouthfeel- Lots of carbonation, light bodied, and very dry. Finish is incredibly clean.

Overall- This really is a great beer and its clear to see how many American pilsners have copied the model of this beer. Surprisingly hoppy and bitter, which is really accentuated with the dryness of the malt. Still, not many beers can balance hop flavor, light body, and crisp/clean finish like this beer does. Need more of this, especially in cans.

Aroma is fairly sweet and grainy, with floral notes and a hint of skunk. Flavor is slightly sweet and malty initially, finishing with a bitter, slightly harsh, earthy bite. There's an underlying diacetyl character. Floral tones surface as it warms. I'm surprised at the sweetness of the malt. The skunk comes out in flavor, as well.
