Generous, if delicate, bone white head, thickness complemented by sticky lacing. Light brass orange color, fading to yellow where glass tapers off. Lowkey persistence in the nose, with sourdough, wild yeasts and wet straw, lemon oil and rock salt, becomes more herbaceous as it warms, however, the citrus scents never get past a barely audible mutter. Light-bodied to watery, minimal palate presence, leans heavily on the bitterness and sour grassiness to remind you it's there. The carbonation not helping, keeps the flavors from settling in and elevate texture of Pellegrino thing. Pretzel dough, rye bread, the malts appear to offer naught but a softening effect on the overall texture. As it finishes there's a moment of pink grapefruit and orange citrus but it's totally dry. It either has to be a lot crisper or offer more flavor diversity to excel in its category.

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.
