16oz cold can into tulip

Appearance - Golden and crystal clear, effervescent bubbles abound, big fluffy 3 finger head with good retention leaves some spotty lacing

Smell - Clean and light, biscuity malts, a bit of apple-like fruitiness, feint spicy hops in the background

Feel/Taste - Just over light body with ample scrubbing carb, smooth and light feel all around. Taste is about like aroma: light, crisp, clean flavors of biscuity malt, hints of sweet, fruity apple, and a little floral character. Hops come through mid-palate with a grassy spiciness that fades away in the finish with a mild bitterness. There are no off-notes perceptible.

Overall - This is a very good, quality beer that I enjoyed a lot, and it really deserves a higher rating. I'm sure the current rating is due to shitty packaging and freshness issues (which PU is currently working to correct). I have no complaints at all about the can I just had. This beer fits a lot of tasty Pils flavor into just 4.4% ABV!
