look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear light gold with a thin soapy head that quickly fades. Really no lacing either but there are tons of carbonation bubbles helping to keep a little foam on top.

Aroma is definitely to style. Almost a little skunk with lots of noble hops and grass. A little bit of bready grain sneaks through.

Flavor has lots of floral noble hops up front and sweet, bready grain. I can almost detect a tiny bit of roast on the back end. Bitterness is sharp and pleasant although there is a little more sweetness than I would like and it isn't quite crisp enough.

Overall, a pleasing pilsener but I prefer several from European breweries. Nonetheless it would be quite pleasant during the summer.
