12 oz bottle pours a surprisingly hazed gold color with an ample cap of stark white head. Good retention and decent lace.

Nose is grassy hops and freshly crushed grains...just as a nice pils should smell. Abita knows lagers and this is a well done lager though not the traditional saaz I am thinking.

Taste is more akin to a German pilsener than Austrian...the hops more grassy than herbal. Malts are perfectly done - they are light and grainy but manage long lasting flavor and a moderate mouthfeel. Bone dry and refreshing. I am pleased with this offering, a welcome addition to the seasonal rotation. I will pick up at least one or two more sixers before fall hits.

Pours out to a generous white head that laces well. Deep golden color. Aroma suggests dry hopping with fresh noble hop aromas balanced with sweet pale pilsner and carapils. Flavor is hop-forward with a nice malt backdrop. Finishes bittersweet and bracingly crisp. Mouthfeel is correct to style. Overall, a tasty, quaffable Americanized German Pilsner. I enjoy traditional German and English hop varieties and this beer delivers on the German noble hop promise. Great choice.

Solid golden color with a thin thick head with short retention.
Nice noble hops and citrusy aroma with hints of bread malt. Feels very fresh.
Flavor of herbal and mostly floral hops, one of the freshest I had, mild orange-lemon citrusy, lager yeast chalkiness and tea bags. Hints of grapefruit and green bell pepper. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light toward medium body with perfect carbonation.
That is a very flavorful, balanced and pleasant pils. Great lawnmower, hop forward but could not be more rounded. One to have frequently in your fridge. Unfortunately, I don't live close to the brewery where I got this…

Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma has lemon, cut grass and some pine needles.
The taste has a nice bitter start, rounded with some mild sweetness. Finishes with a touch of metallic bitterness.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
This is a great pils.
