Long time want. Best by 15 Feb 2015. Bottle from Julio's.

Pouring a clear golden yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks awesome. The nose is great. Bright, snappy , crisp and refreshing, there's a blend of lemony Saaz hops, doughy pils malt , mildly earthy and mildly perfumey hops and a touch of cotton candy. The lemon character is so pure, so deep and yet so complex and so subtle. Magnificent.

The palate opens crisp and clean with a blend of pleasant lemony Saaz bitterness, earthy hops and a mild doughy sweetness. Despite the pronounced hop character, it is lacking in that snap that the best German pilsners have. A very faint butterscotch character is present on the mid palate. Drying on the finish with a blend of lemony bitterness, earthy, woodsy hop flavor and a sweet dough flavor, this beer is crisply carbonated and quite excellent on the palate. Excellent stuff.

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.

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.

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.
