Well the appearance is pretty standard for a pilsner, super see through, yellow, and LOTS of carbonation, man oh man there is a lot. The head is totally white in color and is about a finger and a half in width, it looks pretty creamy and frothy which is nice, and it is hanging around for a decent amount of time. Nothing special, average look for a pilsner. Not much to talk about on the smell, smells like a pretty generic lager, has a malt smell and a malt sweetness on the smell, some light hop notes, not much else. Smells pretty standard, but by no means too impressive, it smells a little refreshing and probably tasty though (the head is still here though, impressed with that). Wow, well the taste is a lot more than I was expecting from the smell. I mean all the flavors are what I thought they would be, but just a lot more of them. I wasn't getting too much of an aroma really from this beer, so I didn't think the taste would be all that much, but it actually has quite a bit of flavor. The hops are more noticeable than I thought they would be, and the overall flavor, complexity and mouthfeel are better than I thought they would be. The mouthfeel is bigger than I was expecting, not a huge mouthfeel by any means, but not wimpy either, and the drinkability is pretty good as well. I don't know if I can give this a 4 for taste, just because it isn't that great, but let it be know that I am very close to giving it a 4, let's say like 3.9, haha. Overall, it's a lot more than I expected, still not the best beer ever, and not the best pilsner ever, but not a bad offering, good beer!
