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

Golden hazy brew with a very sticky head that mostly settles. Very sharp hoppiness in the aroma, the signature of a good Euro-pilsner. Subtle maltiness is also present. Good sharp and spicy hop bite in the flavor as well, with a very supportive malt backbone of graininess. Good body for a pilsner, still light, but flavorful. Smooth, yet still hoppy finish. A very good pilsner, but since this isn't a favorite style mine, it's just above average ignoring the style. I'd recommend it to any fan of pilsners.
