look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: This beer pours a crystal clear shinny light gold color with faint pure white bubbles. The beer appears quite effervescent like champagne as bubbles continue to cascade to the top of the glass after a strong pour.

Smell: This beer has a definitely sweet malt aroma. It is reminiscent of light honey or honeydew melon. There is a slight noble spice aroma of faint orange peel or cut grass. All aromas come across subtly but provide a clean refreshing smell to the beer.

Taste: The flavor has a slight malt bready backbone followed by a faint spice and lingering grassy bitterness. Much like the aroma the beer is easy on the palette with subtle flavors that dissipate quickly.

Mouthfeel: This beer is extremely light in body and almost dances on your tongue due to the effervescence. It is dry, crisp and extremely refreshing.

Drinkability: I could easily pound back a few of these while sitting out in the hot sun or eating a nice lunch at a brewpub. The flavors are more overpowering and leave your pallette feeling clean and not overwhelmed. It's a perfect session beer.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: If you are looking for an extremely light Pils, pick up a six pack. It would be the perfect beer for playing a round of golf, or to pair with light salads, pretzels, or or other salty bar snacks. It's extremely thirst quenching and a definite quaffer in my book.

3.59/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Very pale, light straw color to the body and topped with a soft, foamy white head. Crisp, bright light grain notes in the aroma; dry grass. Slightly herbal flavor with a rather mild, light grain taste with a fairly bold hop bitterness. Light, crisp, clean and dry mouthfeel.

Nothing extraordinary as far as things go yet definitely drinkable and refreshing. Classic light malt and hop bitterness combination that will certainly satisfy folks looking for this traditional style of lager.
