Pours a medium deep golden with a smaller head than expected. Foam quickly subsides, leavibg a rather thin layer, but also a pleasing amount of lacing. Smell is a bit of a departure from what one normally expexts of a pils. Hops are present, but they are quite subdued, and definitely take a back seat to a significant maltiness. Taste is also dominated by a buttery / vanilla maltiness. While not unpleasant. I certainly wouldn't call it characteristic of a classic pils. Mouthfeel is pleasantly full, with a fair amount of carbonation, but again, less than should be expected of the style. Overall, this is a fairly pleasant beer, but points are deducted for significant wandering from the basics of a pils.
