4.15/5 rDev +13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5
Appearance is a translucent dark yellow hue, thin layer of white frothy head sustains, moderate lacing on the glass
Smell is clean crisp pale malts, lager yeast, bread and grains, light hops, touch of citrus
Taste is initially bread malts and cereal grains, transitions to subtle lemon and orange zest, earthy herbal hops enter midway, finishes clean and crisp
Mouthfeel is light-bodied, watery but smooth texture, carbonation is amped very high and biting
Drinkability is high, I drank these all night along at a recent concert (The National @ SD HOB), there is something about the grain and citrus intermix that really does it for me, even though this is a simple and straightforward beer, I love this for my summer session needs, pleasantly surprised here

4.14/5 rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear straw with heavy carbonation and a two-finger fluffy white head. Some nice lacing on the way down. I love the look of a good pilsner and this one has it.
Aroma: The beer smells of grass, hops, and biscuit. There's also an odd note of corn that is very slight but noticeable. It's not off-putting but slightly surprising.
Taste: The taste is classic pilsner. Nice dry finish to compliment a grassy flavor. The taste basically follows the nose, minus that corny note.
Mouthfeel: Nice and light, as a summer lager should be, but not watery or overly thin.
Overall: This is a terrific pilsner. I'd have this during any season, but it's certainly great as a summer seasonal.
