Pours hazy golden with an abundant white head. The head dissipates, leaving lacing on the side of the glass. There are a lot of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The smell is of sweet malt and hops. It's such a bright earthy smell. The taste is sweet from the malts and is balanced by the hop bitterness. There's some citrus flavor from the hops, which helps cut with the bitterness and sweetness to produce an excellently balanced beer. The alcohol does not come through in the taste, but you will notice the effect as you continue to drink the beer. The flavors only get better as the beer warms. The beer is medium bodied with a creamy, yet crisp mouthfeel. The crispness comes from the abundant carbonation. This is very easy to gulp. Overall, this is an excellent and interesting beer.

Sampled at the brewery in the tasting room before a brewery tour today.
A nice pale gold/dark straw yellow in colour. White head is 1/2 inch on the pour and sticks around for awhile, leaving lines of lacing down the sides.
Aroma is pretty standard german pilsner. Biscuity with a grassy and noble hop background.
Flavour is the same as aroma. Biscuity/bready up front before the grassy/noble hops take over in the finish.
Pretty plain and just ok pilsner. Didn't do anything to grab me. Overall I think Abita's ales are better than their lagers, but that's just my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap
