look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

poured into a tall flute glass. pours a hazy golden color. has a little cloudiness to it. was kind of gentile with the pour so i didn't get a big head. has bubbles that seem to never end. I am betting this being a lager that it will be heavily carbonated.
smells light sweet grains, and hay.
Taste is a complex grain with a nice crisp after tones of bitterness. refreshing and clean. just a bit spicy in the middle. not too much though.
as i suspected very carbonated. bubbles a lot of the palate. very crisp as they describe on the bottle.
Highly drinkable. has a different taste then most pilsners styles out there. this is something i would love to drink at a party or anywhere for that matter. I like it.
