look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear straw color with hints on honey. Big soapy pure white head that settles into a puffy cap.

The aroma is of a crackery pils malt with some grainy notes. A bit of a spicy hop but quite subtle. I prefer not to have that strong of a grainy aroma.

The taste is light and crisp. Dry crackery malt mixes with a grassy/peppery/spicy hop to give the beer that pils flavor. Light metallic notes in the finish.

The feel is light, almost watery. Plenty of fizzy carbonation to add to the crispness of the beer. Finishes fairly clean with a light hoppy bitterness in the finish. Overall it is a bit lacking on the feel.

A decent pils but has too much of a grainy flavor and the body is a bit watery.
