Pour really pale gold into the New Belgium pilsener glass. Big frothy white head and lots of sheeting lace in the side of the glass. Smells of herbal noble hops and faint sourness of pale malt.

Taste is dominated by strong noble hops. Hops in the finish and linger in the aftertaste. Crisp and clean mouth. Refreshing and tasty, a nice domestic pilsener.

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

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "Enjoy By" date 12-14-14.

APPEARANCE: pours clear and golden with a half finger white head that dissipated quickly until a thin broken layer of bubbles remained, there was some lacing present, medium carbonation.

SMELL: grass, lemon, mildly toasted, somewhat metallic.

TASTE: bread, lemon and a nice little spicy hop bite.

PALATE: medium carbonation and body, finishes crisp.

OVERALL: I enjoyed this beer, pils is the hardest style to describe for me, this is a good beer, nothing over the top but, I would not hesitate to buy it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Golden.
Smell: Bready and a bit of lemon.
Taste: It's the same as the smell.

This is a good pilsner. It's not mind blowing or even worth getting again, but it's good. The taste matches the smell, and the taste is sweet and really enjoyable. Light lemony bread.
