3.21/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours a crystal clear toasted straw color. A few shades darker than your traditional pils. The white head is fluffy and slowly dissipates leaving some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is quite light. Slightly bready malt provides a sweet aroma and there is a touch of grassy hops. Overall, a bit weak for the style.

The flavor is light and dry. A cracker flavor from the pils malt but there is some depth from a breadier malt. The hops are light but grassy. A sweeter breadier pils basically.

The feel is light and crisp, very easy to drink. Good balance, good summer time brew.

Not the most flavorful pils but no off flavors. Again, easy drinking brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A - pours clear straw color. 1 inch white head which has medium duration

S - grainy/bready malts, sweet smell of honey or fruits

T - slight grain, malty, hops and a little booze come through in the after

M - light/medium bodied. proper carb

Overall - good beer overall. for a pilsner it has quite a bit of flavor, one of the hoppier pils I've had. worth a try.
