Poured from a bottle.
This beer has a straw color to it, with a brilliant, but quickly-dispersing, white head.
Aroma is a little bit grassy, but actually smells almost like a macro lager with a little added hop. I was a little nervous when I first poured it, as it didn't smell like a very good beer, but things improved from there. As it warms up, more hoppiness comes out and a bit more sweetness, although there's still a corny character to it.
Taste is hop-forward and well-balanced. Definitely appear to be noble or otherwise german hops, giving the beer a wonderful earthy character.
Mouthfeel is heavy on the carbonation, but otherwise very smooth, even a little towards the creamy side.
As I mentioned, upon first appearance, this beer seemed to be a hopped up american lager. I'm glad I bought a sixer, though - I was pleasantly surprised after tasting the beer, and would say it's one of the better American pilsners out there. I've only seen this brewery's beers in one place, but will definitely be on the lookout for any other offerings, and this one again.

Appearence. Yellow, very bubbly, thin white head
Smell: very mild bread yeast, Lacked the dankness of lower quality beers.
Taste: the appearance, smell and taste could all be called those of a refined pilsner. Smooth, yeasty lager taste, but complimented with wonderful hopy bitterness and floral notes, that make this beer worlds apart from others of its category
mouthfeel: crisp, bubbly, light/ medium body.
Overall: stands out as a very good beer in a category in which very good is uncommon. If you are a picky beer drinker, but you need a break from IPA'S and stouts, and its warm outside, buy this beer.
