3.5/5  rDev -7.9%

A very pale yellow color but shining as brightly as I thought it would, this one grows just more than half a finger of fluffy white head that drops down some pretty strong lace.
I like the impression and the feel the green bottle and the traditional very German presentation, but the green glass does make me wonder. Still, I get no skunk and only a slight note of sulfur I might expect from the hops. There's quite a bit of lemon and herb in both the aroma and flavor. The impression is of lemongrass and citrus, but with a bit of a sting. I find the esters to build up a bit too strongly through the session. Otherwise, this is absolutely a solid pils.
It's crisp and light, plenty refreshing, but that bite does build. It's clean for most of the way through until it catches up.
