A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and just a hint of light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a couple of small patches of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready and cereal grain malts with light aromas of grassy hops.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of cereal grain and bready malts followed by a light to moderate flavor of grassy hops. There is a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness are present in the finish.
O: I really enjoy the flavors and aromas of this German Pilsener - and it comes in a swing top which is a bonus (I just love that kind of bottle). Very easy to drink and sessionable.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener

L: clear as water, light yellow, very pale with a thick marshmallow of a head, over 1 inch of pure white that sticks and laces and is making me tear up -- THIS is a beer! bubbles continue to cascade up through the column and keeps a thick skin on top ... so much foam. not a hint of amber.
S: grain ice cold; a hint of grass; opens up into some nice bready malt notes as it warms
T: perfect balance of sharp hop bite and sweet bready malt ... very green grassy spicy hops; lightly toasted barley -- really tastes good even when ice cold (taste is there before the nose opens up)
F: perhaps just a hair light, watery ... otherwise, fantastic -- plenty of carbonation and enough weight
O: those German purity laws rock! LOVE this brew, and while it's just a twinge over-priced, this brew is going into my permanent rotation. it's simply what beer should be about -- no gimmicks, nothing tricked up or blinged out, just water, barley, hops and yeast in perfect concert
