I had this in a borrowed pilsener glass.
The appearance was a semi - clear slight golden yellow color with a decent transparency about it. Streams of carbonation were seen rising. There was a two finger soft white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sticking and sliding here and there.
The smell was slightly grainy with a decent grassy hay - like aroma.
The taste was mainly sweet and grainy with a decent balance of a light biscuity flavor.
The mouthfeel was somewhat crisp and sweet. It was about a light on the body.
Overall, this was a pretty good Pilsener made by one of my favorite beer companies.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden color with a small fizzy white head. The head has a weak retention with it fading fast to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell of this one is almost non-existent with just the slightest hint of a bready and yeasty smell with a faint whiff of lemon.

Taste – The taste begins with a dry and crisp cracker flavor with just a hint of caramel sweetness. The caramel fades rather rapidly as the taste advances with it gone by the middle of the flavor. After the initial tastes some flavors of a light hay-like and grassy flavor with a hint of grain come to the tongue. The hay and grass get stronger toward the end of the taste with some flavors of an earthy flavor coming to the profile as well. A tiny bit of a lemongrass flavor works its way into the taste over the whole flavor experience as well, leaving a crisp and rather dry taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly more effervescent side. Both the moderate body and higher carbonation are good for the crisp and refreshing drier tastes of the brew as they make for a very easy drinker.

Overall – A crisp and rather clean tasting brew with a good refreshing character. Not a super flavor powerhouse, but a rather easy drinker overall.

A - poured to a pilsner glass. Golden straw in color. 1 finger head. (Head still there at the completion of drinking the beer) Cloudy but in an appealing fashion

S- again an appealing nose. Fragrant not subtle. Banana, pineapple, bubblegum, apple

T- full of flavor. A nice apple start, mellows to a nice malt and a sharper hoppy finish. A great balance of flavor

M- light body, light to medium carbonation, dry crisp finish

O- I was exited over this beer. I've been on a quest for a solid pilsner. This is by far ahead of the pack so far. Must try for a pils drinker

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with tasty flavors and a crispness that makes this one very easy to drink.
