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.

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.

Ugh, new rating system?

A: 3.5 Gave it a vigorous pour, but only got a small head, on this crystal clear golden beer
S: 3.5 Very light hop aroma, not too much malt.
T: 4 actually surprisingly tasty, given the aroma. Still too bad it lacks good pils malt character, but it's bitter enough and the hops offer a lot of nice flowery hop taste.
M: 4 Light, spritzy flavor.

Overall: 3.75. Doesn't really match up with what I like in a German or Czech Pils--I like malt and hops to blend together--but it's still a decent pils.

12 oz. bottle into a cup in New Orleans. 8/7/14 notes.

a - Pours a murky, bright orange color with one finger of off white head and moderate to high carbonation evident.

s - Smells of wheat, bread, grains, and light floral notes. Plain but nice.

t - Tastes same as the nose, floral hops, oranges, and grapefruit. Better than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall decent but plain nose. Easy to drink.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
