3.53/5 rDev -6.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Poured from a bottle into a Belgian tulip glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin film of head on the top. Some bubbles rising to the top but no lacing as I drink the glass down.
S: Very faint smell of citrus and malt. A light, earthy undertone.
T: When I took my first sip, I expected to taste skunk. The light flavor that you're initially hit with is so often followed by the skunky twang of a macro brew in a clear bottle that I've become conditioned to it.
But there was none of that. Instead it was followed up by a remarkably smooth and clean balance of hops and malt. There's nothing outstanding here but it's remarkably smooth and refreshing.
There's a slight orange peel bitterness that builds a bit over time but it never becomes overwhelming.
M: Crisp and slightly dry.
D: Very high. An easy drinking session beer that would go well with an afternoon of mowing the lawn followed by an evening grilling up some eats.

4.3/5 rDev +14.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle, drank from a seidel. Drank at just above fridge temperature (45F?)
Appearance: Beautiful golden amber colour with plenty of luscious foamy white head. Visible carbonation. Probably couldn't get any better.
Smell: Sweet, delicious malt with lots of estery banana, berry, and other fruit flavours. A tasty and refreshing smelling floral hoppiness compliments the fruitiness. Amazing.
Taste: A little less prominent than the smell, but still solid. Light malt but complex hops. Very good example of the pilsner style.
Mouthfeel: Frothy and full feel, leaves a nice aftertaste, and no alcohol taste. Very smooth and satisfying, and refreshing as well.
Overall: Best pilsner I've had up to this point. Excellent session beer, tasty and refreshing especially in a warm summer evening. Very well priced as well.
