This is one pilsner that is enjoyable to drink. It has a nice fruit hoppiness to it that goes nice over the usual barley flavor for this style. This beer does a nice job of staying interesting while still delivering what you would expect from a pilsner. Refreshing, light, and easy to drink. This beer adds taste, the missing link in a pilsner.

A - 5. Just a beautiful crystal clear straw with many bubbles. 1/2" large bubble head from easy-modedate pour.

S - its awesome. I haven't tasted it yet at this point in filling out the review but the exceptional appearance and smell compelled me to review this beer fully, so here goes...

T - dry. Very hoppy for a pilsner. More bitter than sweet per style. Not bad, but unfortunately very let down. Looks and smells great but only an average beer, probably below average and wrongfully classified pilsner.

M - nothing great, nothing poor. 3.75, its pretty drinkable.

O - 3.5. Points docked for tasting far more an IPA than a pilsner.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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
