look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a bright hazy straw color, crisp-looking, had a finger-thick header.
Smells of fresh peas, with some grass and malt.
Tastes refreshing and crisp as it looks, with an impressive distinct taste I can only hope to compare with other renowned pilsner styles as I eventually try them. I've had this as a go-to session beer for a few years now simply because it's refreshing and original, with a grassy/ spiced flavor that's as tasty as I could hope for. It must help that I love hops, as apparently this is quite bitter even for German pilsner standards.
Again this beer shines as far as mouthfeel goes. Smooth carbonation, perfect crispness, finely balanced drinking here.
Due to the hops usage here, I suspect if I try every other example of this style, I'd still come back to this one as my tops. Rich for what it is. And excellent.
