Clear, pale straw, with lots of effervescent carbonation, but little head. Mild, yet inviting aroma of grainy malt with a light citric hop note. Clean and crisp flavor with a proper grassy bitterness kicking in early and lingering nicely on the tongue. The malt backbone is bready and dry without any residual sweetness. Carbonation is very nice. The body is light but never thin. This beer just goes down so smoothly, and the alcohol is not discernible at all.

This beer is damn near perfect and is just a fine example of a proper Pils. It's drinking very fresh right now and for 6.99 a sixer it is unbeatable. Way underrated in my opinion.
