4.05/5 rDev +0.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - light, almost Hefewiezeny, slightly cloudy, a textured low head that sticks around for a while, some lacing
S - somewhat floral, a hint of honey, light malt. It's just a delicious smell. I want to drink the smell of it by itself.
T - more of that floral note and some sweetness. I'm not getting much of that welcome grassy note you sometimes get in pilsners. There's a bitterness that at first blends very nicely with that floral note but in the end bites you in the soft palate and lingers in a not great way if you're me. There's also a faint sweetness that lingers, which is nice.
M - somewhat soft, yet with some carbonation tingle on the tip of the tongue.
O - This is a very well made pilsner targeted at people who appreciate hop bitterness. The other elements of the beer are lovely. I think this beer would be fantastic without so much bitterness at the end of the swallow - just a bit more balance. The bitterness does give it some identity, but I don't think it would blend in with every other pilsner if it lacked it; its floral nature and accompanying sweetness are bewitching all by themselves. I'd give it a 4.5 on taste if it weren't for the overbitterness. So instead it's a 4. I'd give it a 4.5 overall if not for the bitterness, so instead it's a 4. Clearly this is subjective to a nonhopper.

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.
Serving type: on-tap
