No bottle date that I can detect.

A: Nice golden color. Trransparent. Vigorous carbonation rushes to the surface. Finger and a half of bleached head with fairly rapid dissipation. Retention is minimal.

S: Nice maltiness. Very biscuit or bread like. Hops come through and are very noble smelling. Herbal, lemon, some sulphur, a little bit of saltiness.

T: Nice bit of malt in the front. Very crackery. Saltiness kicks in. Little bit of toasted character in the malt. Mid palate takes on a bit of a sour turn. Lemon, some green apple skin. Saltiness maintains (think saltine). Transitions threw to a fairly herbaceaous bitterness. A soap like citrus is also in there on the end. Very dry finish, with virtually no aftertaste other than bitterness.

M: Light, refreshing. Vigorous carbonation may be a distraction to some.

O: Pretty good pils. There is a strange element with the lemon/soap, but it's not bad. Fairly bitter, as well. Would definitely pick up again.

Pours a mostly clear straw color with a chill haze. Little head and no lace. Aroma of bready malt, herbal hop and a bit of citrus. In the taste, pilsner malt and smaller, slightly citrusy hop character with lemon notes. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel on a pils that is easy to drink. Overall, this was a decent pils with good flavor.
