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…

This is a pretty good summer drink. Crisp and refreshing. One of the better pilsners I've tried with a hoppy bitter finish. Pleasing aroma with the right balance of malt and hops. Would enjoy another.

Not bad, poured a cloudy orangeish-brown with good head and lacing. Some spice upfront with malt sweetness and a touch of citrus. Good carbonation makes this beer a little better. Good drinkability and overall decent finish with just a hint of hop bitterness

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy, golden/yellow color, speckled with orange highlights and a half of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Toasted malt up front, imparting notes of English muffins or pretzels, followed by s hint of orange or lemon citrus, some honey and caramel and finished with some floral hops imparting notes of clover and honeysuckle.

Taste: Tastes like a pilsner! Lots of toasted malt up front, followed by a touch of honey or caramel-like sweetness and a touch of lemony citrus, finished by some pronounced hoppy bitterness. Maybe a touch too much hops for me.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp, and very effervescent as there’s quite a lot of carbonation. With an ABV of 4.8%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a decent beer, though to be honest, pilsners aren’t one of my preferred styles of beer. There are some nice flavors of toasted malt and sweetness, but like most pilsners, there’s maybe a touch too much hops at the finish. Pilsner fans and hop heads should really like this beer though…

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.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fizzy head. The smell is very subtle but has scents of the hops and a little bit of malt. Some citrus like lemon come through but not much. The taste though I found very nice. Very light without being boring. Still a lot of great flavors and a very crisp finish. Very good summer beer.
