look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured a nice yellow/straw with a medium but nice retained head,pretty highly carbonated.Smell was nice and malty with some sweetness.Taste starts malty and somewhat irony but has a lingering dryness to it,somewhat complex for the style.One of the best if not the best pilsners I have had real nice and highly drinkable.

Bottle poured into a pokal.
A: Pale golden; clear; 4 finger fluffy white head subsides into 1 finger after a minute...great lacing.
S: Bready, sweet, touch of citrusy/spicy hops
T: The hops come right away, spicy/herbal, dry; still get a bit of bready pils malt; long dry sweet/herbal zesty finish...bit of rind. Those are some hops.
M: Crisp, prickly on the tongue, but still pretty smooth.

Overall: Great beer, especially if you like hops. My ideal German pils is a bit more bready and grassy...but I never say no to this beer.

Outstanding continental pils malt foundation with the crisp hop profile found across the pond. Awesome example of the style

Pours a pale almost clear yellow with a fizzy white head. The head settles down, taking on a nice creamy quality and adding a little sticky lacing. The aroma is distinct, with light bread notes, earthy and citrus hops. The taste is actually a little hop forward, dialing back the malt in favor of the two competing hops notes. The malt is more of a background note. It has a sharp crispness to it and some carbonation on the finish.
