Nicely poured beer with a fantastic head; fluffy, soapy, soft and lasting with a fine delicate lacing left behind. The liquid is slightly hazed and lively bubbles visible. The smell is hay-like, almost grassy, with a sweet cracker like background aroma. Better than most. Taste is balanced, with a crisp hop intro, moving to biscuity malts with a kiss of sweetness and finishing on slightly bitter, west cop hoppiness that never gets too much. Everything stays nicely in check, nothing wild, a understated pils that still has flavor. Mouthfeel is a little over carbonated, too much roughness but decent for a pils.
Overall, pretty good. I'm not blown away like the Paulaner, but am satisfied as far as an Americanized German pilsner goes. Good hopping done in this one.

I purchased this bottle at Whole Foods in Fremont CA, poured from the green bottle chilled in a mug.
The color is golden clear with thick white cap and small bead with a good amount of lace. The smell is decent with a slight skunky yeast/hop odor with grassy odor and mild sweet malt presence, not great but the green bottle probably made the slight off aroma which is mild in comparison to the pilsner attributes. The feel is good with light body and medium bitterness with moderate carbonation and mild sweetness with a clean dry finish.
The taste is very good with slight hop flavor up front with low astringency and mild grassy aspect with gentle herbal noble type flavor with mild malt sweetness and gentle yeast in the taste with some low diacetyl in the finish making it seem smooth. I like the noble hop character I get in the taste which makes the hop seem less bitter in taste. Overall this is a pretty good pilsner, a nice example of the style and I think it is a good value if you like German lagers.
