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

A: It has the perfect appearance of a pils. It has a rich golden color that is transparent, with a full white head and lots of visible carbonation. The lacing is very mild.

S: There is some European noble hop aroma along with the characteristic lager smell. I can pick up some grain scent and even some of the yeast. It smells very fresh.

T: It has a very well balanced flavor, without the hop or grain flavors being too strong for a pils, or overpowering each other. The hops have a light earthy quality, and there is the lager bite on the finish, with some light bitterness at the end. I can taste some of the yeast flavor coming through so it's not completely clean.

M: The mouthfeel for this is light but borders on medium. There is a light bitterness in the mouth that lingers.

O: Overall this is a nice alternative to many of the other standard pilsners available, and I enjoyed the beer.
