4.13/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Best by 07 Aug 2012 can poured into a milkshake pilsner glass.
Appearance: Clear gold beer, but darker shade of gold. Plenty of bubbles coming up through the beer. Very thin white head across the top with some occasional strands of persistent lacing noted.
Smell: Mild - clean and crisp malt with the barest hint of earthy hops. A tiny bit of sweetness in with the malt, but a mild (well, maybe weak is a better term) smell overall.
Taste: What the beer lacks in aroma it makes up for in taste. Crisp start, very smooth transition into pilsner type malts - nice balance of malt against the crisp start and then the bitter German hop finish which is part crisp and part lingering spicy/earthy finish. Quite nice pilsner full of flavor, but smoothly and nicely done.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, nice thickness but smooth after the carbonation leaves the tongue. Definitely not too much carbonation. A little bit of stickiness on the teeth though.
Overall / Drinkability: A very good and flavorful pilsner. Quite drinkable and well done overall - things nicely in balance and yet forward in flavor rather than going too smooth and mild. I think my only disappointment is the aroma, which is quite mild and only gets a tad better as the beer warms up. Otherwise definitely worth the 4-pack I purchased so I enjoy it a few more times.

3.55/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a tall pint glass: color is opaque gold/copper, head is bright white, presenting 1/2 inch thick then dissipating to a nice top; definitely more dense/murky than other pilsners.
Smell is light pils malts, then grassy hops, solid bitterness, light citrus and earthy notes.
Taste is crisp, definitely full of hops, though the subtle grassy flavors are prominent, some stronger citrus type flavors are noted with a strong drying, bitter finish; malt is pils and bread, subtle backbone type flavor. Earthy flavors are prominent as well.
Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonated and biting on the tongue, very drying, more so than other similar style pilsners.
Overall, this is seems to be close to a kellerbier in presentation with a heavy bitter pils take. As it warms up the flavors come through pleasantly, but the nose seems off and mouthfeel a bit overdone.
