3.55/5 rDev -9%
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.

Clear golden colour. Great brightness. Nice foamy white head with good head retention.
Lightly hoppy aroma which complements the rich malt character. Very simple but no evident flaws.
Rich malt character but this falls apart with a harsh bitterness and some acetaldehyde. The green apple character is particularly offputting.
Moderate body with moderate carbonation. Fine.
A disappointing beer. The aroma and appearance are great but the presence of acetaldehyde in large quantities seriously lowers the palatability of this beer.
