Poured from the bottle to a 16oz tumbler, at appropriate serving temp for a pils.
Appearance - Looks like a glass of honey. To test this, I poured some honey into a shot glass. The beer genuinely looks like a glass of honey, just a touch more pale. Just what a pilsner should look like.
Smell - Honey (it was actually the aroma that inspired me to bust out my Honey Bear). Not much of a hint at the hops in the flavor profile, interestingly. A little grassiness, barnyard smell, but only slightly.
Taste - Some good hops and mild malty sweetness hit quickly, but don't hang out long. They give way to a dry, crisp middle and finish with some residual bitterness from the hops closing down the party, lingering longer than I'd expect. Finally, after I thought the night was over, I noticed some minerally after taste on the back of my palette. It's ok, feel free to hang around. I liked it.
Mouthfeel - The perfect weight for the style. Not in the least bit sticky or chewy, lively small-bubbled carbonation, slides across the tongue and sneaks down your throat, which leads us to...
Drinkability - Get out of town. Get right the F out of town. On a summer day, hell, on a fall morning at 2:30am, such as right now, I could probably toss back a good half dozen of these bad boys. It's one of my very top session beers. Won't fill you up, never let's you down... or something along those lines. Great flavor, great thirst quenching, reasonable price, excellent accessibility.
In case you're not getting it, I love this beer.
