4.2/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured from 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden, crystal-clear body with lots of apparent effervescence. Head is three fingers of frothy white foam. A great-looking Pils.

Smell: nice malt aroma with a little grain; this also has a great fruity quality. Pears, hay, a little apple; this is one swingin' Pilsner. It almost smells like a light tripel.

Taste: crisp, fruity, light, just a hint of floral hops and just on the nice side of bitter. Flavor profile tracks well with the aroma. This is a pretty darn tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a nice level of carbonation. A nice creaminess, especially for the style.

Drinkability: its lightness, combined with its very good flavor and aroma, make this one of the most drinkable beers I've ever had.

4.08/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Light gold body with a thick, rocky, white head; clinging lumps of foam adhering to the glass. Fresh hop aroma; grassy with yeast and light malt notes. Light cereal grain flavor with an excellent balance of hop bitterness. Medium-light body; clean and crisp.

A truly fine example of a classic German lager style. Everything comes together nicely and creates a very enjoyable, thoroughly satisfying pilsner package.

4.26/5  rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Typical German pilsener look: pale and golden with a big fluffy head.
Spicy and herbal hops on the nose with some crackery malt. Very nice.
Spicy grassy flavor upfront with some soft bready flavors and sweetness in the middle before and nice snappy bitterness that leaves a hoppy aftertaste.
Very nice and as with all good pilseners you can really put them away quickly. Very balanced level of bitterness: not over the top and not understated.
Great pils with some enjoyable fresh hop qualities.
