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.

Poured into my Pilsner Urquell footed pilsner glass. Pours a clear golden with a creamy three finger head that leaves mild lacing behind. Had aromas of grainy cereal, sweet honey, and grassy hops. The mouth looses those grassy hops and enhances the sweet honey. Grainy and sweet all the way down, and a touch of bitterness finishes it up. This beer just slides down the throat with ease, and the honey aftertaste lingers for a long while.

Overall: A little less hoppy than I expect out of a german pilsner, but that did not ruin this excellent beer for me.
