3.9/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz brown long-neck bottle with a blurb about the beer on the back ... freshness date notched on the back label.

Appearance: Very clear golden straw with a fluffy rocky white head that sticks all around the glass.

Smell: Slightly sweet with a trace raw honey like nose from the grain with a fresh mowed hay like hop aroma.

Taste: Smooth with a dreamy textured mouth feel. Lots of grain on the tongue with a palate cleansing vaguely herbal hop bitterness. Touch of sweetness up front but all and all on the dry side throughout. Hops stay assertive even into the finish to keep thing dry along with the grainy flavour.

Notes: Hmmm ... tastes like it was freshly shipped over from Germany. Not bad at all, a good find for any pilsner geek or even a macro brewery Beck's (or similar) drinker.

Serving type: bottle
