Poured into my over-sized pilsner glass, fits perfectly. The body is light gold with a feathery yet substantial head. The head has good retention that leaves some sudsy patches on the glass. Smell: Lemon zest and sourdough, some green apple hints -- simple and sturdy (full). Taste: Opens with a zesty prick of hops; the middle is a slighty sour green apple, with a finish of taut hop bitterness backed by a mellow buttery malt sweetness. Not much happening, really. Decent. The taste doesn't hold up the promise of the nose. Mouthfeel: A little thin, but nothing to complain about. Well carbonated.

Pale gold with a vanishingly brief head.
Aroma of vegetal, grassy hops and doughy pale malt.
Crisp, off-dry and slightly tart, with brisk grassy noble hops over a soft crackery pils malt base. Clean, simple, and refreshing, with no flaws. Very slight hint of sulfur in the background.
Feather-light and almost watery, emphasis here is on drinkability.
Overall, a fine quaffable pilsner. Apparently over-hyped, perhaps owing to its name conflict with the fizzy American swill, but leaving all that aside it's still a quite nice pale lager in its own right.
