Appearance - Pours crystal clear and golden in color. White half-finger head that exhibits little retention, resulting in a fairly barren surface.

Smell - Grainy aroma with light hints of citrus and grass.

Taste - Follows the nose. Grainy malt body with faint hints of lemon and a slightly bitter grassy finish. Nothing particularly amazing.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with tingly carbonation. Smooth and easy, with a crisp finish. Easily the best aspect of this beer.

Overall - A very average pilsner from NB here. Clean, yes, but very little in the way of flavor. There are so many other better craft pilsners out on the market, so it's doubtful I'll ever feel the need to buy this again.
