12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, best before 3/1/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear golden straw color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, floral, grass, cracker, pepper, light pine, and herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with a good balance of hops and fruity lager esters. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, apple, pear, pepper, pine, floral, grass, cracker, bread, hop earthiness, and floral spiciness. Good amount of earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, floral, pepper, grass, cracker, bread, hop earthiness, and floral spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor balance with good complexity; with a very hoppy flavor profile; and nearly zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Pilsner style. Great hoppy flavor balance with good complexity; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering as expected.
