4.85/5  rDev +31.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Light lemon yellow with excellent clarity and tons of visible bubbles. Sudsy white head leaves a layer of foam and spotty patterns of lacing.

Bright and fresh, citric, floral and spicy aroma with hints of ginger root.

Solid malt body of soft wheat bread. Burst of assertive citric and leafy hop. Super fresh flavor with a bright, crisp finish.

Light to medium bodied. Smooth throughout and crisp in the end. Very well carbonated.

One of the most tasty pilsners out there. A true classic!

Tastes great. It pours as pale yellow, with normal head. The only issue is that my bottle reads the ABV as 4.9%, not 5.10%, as stated in the beers description.

The light citrus flavor compounded with the bitterness of the hops are overall reminiscent of grapefruit. Very simple; very refreshing.

3.8/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear pale yellow, crisp-looking body, fizzy with a white finger-width of head. Some lacing builds.
Smells like a citrusy, lightly spiced, biscuity pilsner. Refreshing scent.
Tastes like a pilsner with the malts I love about them, with light lemon-pepper favor, and this one finishes with a grassy/ mineral bite. Drinks light and peppery.
It feels crisp, smooth, medium carbonated and yet the liquid feels on the thin side.
Overall, a nice pilsner from a great brewery.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A cloudy straw colored beer with a white head.

A faint smell. Sweet floral hops.

Light side of medium bodied.

Watery mouthfeel at first.
Thin malts, with a citrusy lemon flavor and a slightly bitter finish.

Very refreshing.
This would make for a nice summer beer.
