look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25
A - Arrived in a mason jar with a small, bubble head. The beer is a golden straw color, and quite clear. Visible bubble carbonation.
S - Minimal aroma, but it is as expected.
T - Mix of floral hops and very mild doughy malt. Bitterness is pretty strong here and the other flavors are rather indistinct.
M - Bone dry and astringent carbonation. Not pleasant.
O - The flavors aren't bad, but don't stand out in any way. The mouthfeel is incredibly uncomfortable, to the point where I'm beginning to wonder if there was something wrong with the keg? I checked other reviews to see of others had the same experience, and hopefully this was a limited problem. Would try again, but I'd take most any pilsner over this regardless of carbonation issues.

Sampling right now on 7/21/14. Bottles chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tall weissber vase glass. Alcohol content is right at 6% (ABV).
Pours a bright pale gold in color with a good 2-finger white foamy head that lasts a good while. Lots of lacing is seen, some in rings even. A good amount of bubbles streaming up from the bottle of the glass. The aroma is mostly of malt and yeast. Much more going on with the taste as it is hard to pin point besides the malt and yeast. Starts out sweet then ends with a slight bitter finish. Not to hoppy though. Crisp and full-bodied. Overall, not a bad brew at all!

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Bright pale gold in the glass with a frothy head of large bubbles. The smell is very malty and a bit yeasty for not at all the bright clean aromas that I'd expect from a pils. Giving it another sniff reveals a bit of grassy hop but nothing all that distinct or punchy. I have no idea what's going on in the taste of this one. Very malty with a lot of caramels and biscuit flavors overall a bit sweet with only a touch of bitterness from a bland hoppiness that barely serves. I find that I'm having a hard time getting over how sweet this beer is, however, the sweetness does fade in the finish which is rounded out by some bitterness that lingers for a few seconds. Generally this beer is a little slick and probably not carbonated enough for the style although it could just be weighed down by everything else going on in there. Overall its ok, but I can't say that I'd recommend it.
