I poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
The beer was a clear, pale, yellow with a thick soapy white head that left a lot of lacing. Smells of lemon with light pilsner malt, grass and hay. There is a smooth but solid bitterness, the taste consists of lemon peel with a light pine flavor and a biscuity background. The beer is light with prickly carbonation and a dry finish. I would choose this pilsner over any other that I have tried so far.

Pours a pale golden amber, one finger of thinly foamy,puffy offwhite head, which leaves a nice layered striata of lace, slow ebbing.
Smells of mildly crisp grainy pale malt, dry lemon, metallic earthy, grassy ,leafy hops. Taste is lightk funky leafy, grassy hops, gritty pale malt, a touch of crispy cracker, stale lemon, and a stony flintiness.
The carboantion is a bit tight, but mostly wanly frothy, the body medium light in weight, a bit edgy in its smoothness. It finishes on the dry side, lightly zingy from the obvious noble hops.
An adequate old-school pils, a bit soft around the edges, yet more or less drinkable, and duly thirstquenching.
Serving type: on-tap

The label on this beer says Pilsner/Lager. I guess there is such a thing as a combination of Pilsner and Lager.
Appearance: Golden hue, very slight copper tones. Half a finger of head, good aeration dissipates quickly.
Aroma: Malty with some sweet melon tones.
Taste: Barley, some very subtle hops. No sweetness despite the sweet melon aroma. Very straight barley taste, no complexity.
Mouthfeel: Nothing significant to report.
Overall: OK, not sure that I would buy another 6-pack of this one.
