A preface: Pilseners are not my favourite beers. That being said, I try to approach this with an objective mind and rate it based on it's quality and not just based off my own taste preferences.
It poured a hazy straw colour, with a white head that dissipated pretty quickly, leaving very limited lacing (alliteration!)
The smell is light and hoppy, with a citrusy backbone that finishes almost a little sweet/floral.
Drinking it follows the same theme from the nose, with the hops leading the way with a light spicy/citrusy undercurrent. The flavour is primarily in the first swish through the mouth, though the second act gives way to the faint floral notes from the nose, while the finishing aftertaste is the hoppy bitterness that sits with you for a little while.
It's a lightly carbonated beer, which goes down pretty smoothe, but nothing particularly notable.
Overall, it's a beer that I can enjoy drinking if it happens to be around the house, but I would not seek it out. If you really like lighter beers with an undeniable hop profile, you might like it, but it's just not my cup of tea (or beer as it were). don't shy away from it, but not something you necessarily need to go on a mission for

4.16/5 rDev +2.5%

Pours light golden color with thick, foamy head. Very strong, pleasing citrus aroma. Fruit filled taste with citrus, apples and pineapples. Mild hoppy bitterness. I prefer IPA type hoppiness and am not really a lager drinker, but this one doesn't disappoint. Probably the best lager/pilsner that I have tasted. Would definitely use as a session beer.
