look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Pours crystal clear light yellow color with a 2-3 finger foamy white head that was full of bubbles and the brew has tons of carbonation bubbles racing up the beer like champagne; the head faded on the slow side, leaving minimal spotty lacing.
Smells of biscuit, grains, floral hops, light lemon zest, herbs, husky vegetables, faint citrus hops and bread/malt. I thought that the nose would be hoppier since the bottle states “Dry Hopped With Saphir”, but it still smelled like a good pils.
Tastes like it smells but with more floral hops and herbs, including bready malt, biscuit, roasted grains, flowers, light lemon zest, watered down caramel, a mild yeast funk, dry citrus hops and dry grass or hay. Like the nose it was not as hoppy as I expected, but much more flavorful than most basic pils with a slight bitterness that showed how the hops and malts were nearly perfectly balanced in this brew.
Mouthfeel is very light, crisp and thin, with a medium body, average carbonation and a slightly bitter finish that that trails off with some bready or grainy notes. I drank 4 of these tonight, so it's a definite session beer to me as I found it very easy to drink.

Pours light hay yellow, light body, clear, effervescent, decent white head.
Smells bready and hoppy in a spicy / herbal way.
Very refreshing pilsner here. Plenty of Pilsner malt taste but then a bitter flavor ending due to the hops..peppery, but nice fresh grass leads up to it.
Creamy feel and great carbonation for this style makes it a pleasure to sip.
I'd visit this anytime, and will look for it this summer as I could easily see a session with this for the camping weekends.
