Pennsylvania

4.33/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured this out from a 12oz bottle in to a glass. It is a medium straw color with a 1/2 inch head. Moderately bubbly and glowing. Smells of floral hops up front with grains and grass in the back, very potent overall. Very floral and herbal, hops dominate with a clean grain and grass taste in the back with some fruit esters. Mouthfeel is drying like a fine champagne and carbonation is tingly to the tongue. Overall drinkability is high as it goes down pleasantly. Overall this is a great German Pilsner if not one of the best. I had it in Wurzburg on tap before but I did not rate it at the time.

3.78/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Best before 9/2013.

Pours a hazy super light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, white grape juice, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with white grape juice and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

3.89/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint bright yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall pillowy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of bready malts with moderate aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of bready malts. That is followed by light flavors of grassy hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which does not linger for too long.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink, enjoyable, and a great representation of the style. Definitely one to grab again - pairs great with food.
