Poured from a nifty white 26 oz ceramic bottle into a pilsner glass. Looks light, moderately bubbly, and has a uneven off white head that coalesces into bigger bubbles that disappear and fades into fingers of fizz. Has a light sweet and flowery scent with a kind of caramel undertone, but not very hoppy. The hoppy bite comes out in the taste - it cuts but also has something that reminds me of lavender - then it goes heavy and sweet, with more hop, and finally a pleasantly bitter finish that lingers with just a hint of sweetness. Feels light and effervescent in the mouth, but kind of coats - it's not as crisp as I'd expect a pilsner to be. It's very good, but not exceptionally good, and pretty expensive.
