4.16/5 rDev +8.3%
Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a bright and clear straw golden orange with a lot of bubbles. Huge five finger white head with good retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A bready and earthy malt driven aroma with good hints of sweet biscuit balanced by earthy hops. Pale pils malt with hints of straw, biscuit, grains, hay, wheat, crackers, and yeast. Solid hop balance with floral, earthy, and citrus hints. Noble hop hints along with some grass. Citrus fruit hints of lemon zest and orange. A very solid balanced pilsener aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints, a nicely bready and zesty pils malt taste with a solid presence of floral hops and citrus. Bready and fairly sweet pilsener malt with notes of biscuit, grains, straw, hay, wheat, crackers, and yeast. Good balancing hop presence with floral notes and earthy notes of grass. Citrus hop notes of orange and lemon zest. Pretty solid noble hop presence. Good taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high amount of carbonation. Very crisp, clean, and smooth.
Overall: A pretty solid take on a Euro Pilsener. Hoppier than typical for the style but it works well.

4.33/5 rDev +12.8%
Serving glass: Poured from can into Pilsner glass.
Appearance: Clear gold with good sized, stark white head that leaves nice lacing rings.
Smell: Dried out apple, pepper, straw, hay, and a titch of citrus.
Taste: Light malt backbone of dry apple, straw and fresh cut grass. Nice peppery finish with some floral and citrus notes. Fairly hoppy and bitter like a good Northern German Pilsner.
Feel: Light body with moderately high carbonation. Crisp, dry and very clean finish. Perfect for the style.
Overall: This is a textbook example of a German Pilsner and it is executed perfectly. Nothing unexpected here, but if I want a local Pilsner, this would be my first choice.

Purchased after a New Years excursion up the shore. Poured into a NG pilsener glass.
A - clarity is perfect, pours a pale straw with two fingers of white head which slowly diminishes but leaves decent lacing
S - whole lotta lemon up front, some sweet and biscuity malt aromas, just a touch of skunk
T - Really damn good, lemon zest predominates though I get some other citrus flavors as well, mainly grapefruit, fairly sweet on the front palate, nice pale malts, modestly bitter/herbal with a slight peppery note in there as well
M - light bodied, carbonation is solid, finish wonderfully dry, a touch of warmth along with some hops resin in the finish
O - a really tasty and refreshing pilsener, I could drink this every night. Will probably pick up a case for camping/boating when I'm up in Duluth in May
