3.24/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle:

The beer poured clear, darker amber/golden color that produced a big, slightly off white head that faded quickly into thin cap. The beer gave off a nice lager aroma, sweet malt and yeast. The taste of the beer was malty sweet as well, but also had a syrup quality to it, which was very unexpected. This contributed to the lesser feel rating. With that said, the beer was still rather smooth. I really wanted to like this beer. Maybe it just didn't travel well or maybe it was old. I am willing to give this one another shot as I am really into the style.

2.83/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, light caramelized malts, a good amount of hops and some honey.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast and a thin malt character. Then a mild but odd hops bitterness bite comes in. There is very little sweetness and not much balance. The after-taste is bready and slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and but not very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are definitely other beers in the style that I would pick first.

3.98/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

appearance: dusky amber gold with a pleasant head

smell: rich almost woody nuts, slightly citrus around the edges

taste: Nice sweet and with just enough back bone to be hearty, not bad at all

mouthfeel: although a bit watery in the end I like it a lot. Not something I can honestly describe accurately its new and good. You really should try

overall: I like it and its honestly something you have to try, it was a surprise, all I can say its pils with a surprisee
