Light golden straw. No head. continuous bubbles from etching in glass. Superb clarity. Smells a touch skunky over the base of straw scented malts. Bitter pilsner flavor. Taste is a bit too bitter for a good pilsner style, more like a kolsch.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, into a pint glass. The beer poured a clear straw, forming a very thin 1/4 inch head, that faded quickly, leaving very light lacing on the glass. The aroma is extremely skunky. Unfortunately, that is all I can detect. The taste is a light balance of hops and malts. Nothing that really stands out. Light mouthfeel. Overall, its an easy beer to drink, but far from enjoyable. The smell is terrible, and the taste is anything but great. I would recommend looking elsewhere for a German style pilsner. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but if this is the what it normally tastes like, I wont be trying this again.
