4.18/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow. Head is egg-shell white and only about a finger despite some pretty vigorous pouring. Retention is minimal.

Smell: Crisp and clean, with a hint of pale malts, hops and citrus. Not overly impressive.

Taste: Wow. After the smell I am very surprised. Pale malts and citrus are fairly strong up front, and quite a bit of hoppy bitterness comes at the end. It's probably the tastiest pilsener I've tried.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp with a clean, slightly dry finish. Carbonation is moderate and seems to be about right.

Drinkability: It's not filling and low ABV, so it's very drinkable. Definitely a great substitute for some BMC crap if you're looking to put down quite a few brews. If I had drank this straight from the bottle I would have thought it was unbelievable for a "lighter" beer.
