look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear deep golden in color, with a modest white head, which soon fades to a scattering of foam on the surface. Thin, scattered fine-beaded lacing coats the glass walls. The carbonation is modest and slow-rising.

Aroma: Classic Pilsener aroma, although a bit understated, cracker and biscuit malt and noble hops, and a mineral aroma to the water.

Taste: Opens with a bit of biscuit malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness, assuaged by modest noble hops. As the taste progresses, the hops dominate, but only slightly. Finishes with a biscuit malt note, and a mild herbal hop presence.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, not unpleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Neither good, nor terrible, about what could be expected of a "German" beer brewed in America. The great German brewers of yore must be spinning in their graves.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve fluid ounce brown glass bottle, sealed with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
