Too hoppy for my taste, but if you are looking for a hoppy pilsner, this is your beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured a nice yellow/straw with a medium but nice retained head,pretty highly carbonated.Smell was nice and malty with some sweetness.Taste starts malty and somewhat irony but has a lingering dryness to it,somewhat complex for the style.One of the best if not the best pilsners I have had real nice and highly drinkable.

This is a solid pilsner. Crisp and refreshing. Nice hop character before a bready and malty finish. Super drinkable. Nice citrus and tangy profile in the nose.

Pours a crystal clear straw yellow, great sized white bubbly head, fades at a rate rate, only a few small bits of lacing on the glass, thin cap remains on top for awhile longer.

Smell has a fairly strong grassy hop aroma with a touch of sweetness from the malt backing.

Taste starts out with the malt sweetness with a decent hop presence, hops are slightly more citrusy than the nose indicated yet still retain their grassiness, well balanced without any element being overly strong, very easy to drink, carbonation is medium with a body that is light yet not thin which is quite difficult to pull off.
