This was a 12 oz bottle that was poured into a snifter.

It poured a lovely amber and had a slight opaqueness to it. It smelled really hoppy and had a slight bitter smell. I was expecting more hops like an esb based purely on smell but it is a hoppy pils or a weak esb. The mouth feel is medium but I am not a huge pilsner fan. I like bigger body beers. With that in mind this was a great beer for a pilsner. I would recommend a d would buy again.

I love the nose and love the hoopiness of this beer.

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

A: Pours a slightly cloudy straw yellow color with 2 fingers worth of bubbly head

S: Lager yeast, herbal grassy and slightly spicy hops, as well as some lightly bready malts and a light lemon character (probably also from the hops)

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a hit of the herbal hops, followed by a light spiciness and bready notes. Finishes with a light hop bitterness and lemon peel. Very hoppy for a pils

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly oily and firm

O: Damn, what a pils. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) brewed in the states. Very easy to drink and put down a sixer of. Great price point as well. Highly recommended
