12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 5/28/2013. Pours lightly hazy pale straw color with a nice 2 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, grape, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, grape, pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, light pine, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, grape, pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, light pine, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent German Pilsner style! Great balance and robustness of hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12oz bottle poured into Oxbow glass, thanks Greg (uvm2003) for sending this. Date is stamped on bottle but smudged.
A. Pours a bright yellowish golden, thin white head forms that quickly subsides, minimal carbonation, faint lacing.
S- Lemons, pilsener malts, wheat, hints of grass, slightly on the floral side. About average aroma strength, definitely a little on the hoppy side for a pilsener.
T- Slightly bitter lemon juice with pilsener malts hiding underneath, slight hay and wheat, finishes with a slight lemon acidity and lingering lemon juice.
M- A little bit on the light side, fairly drinkable, a little bit low on carbonation, crisp but not nearly as crisp as a lot of pilsener's I've had (which is what I like best about the style).
O- This was a decent interpretation of a Pilsener that was slightly on the hoppy side with the lemon juice really coming out. Definitely worth trying, but there are some other pilseners that I'd much rather have.
