4.7/5 rDev +16.3%
pours bright yellow, typical for a european lager, though this is totally american.
midrange carbonation. has a good one finger frothy white head after it settles down.
smells grapefruity like a mild IPA.
taste similar to smell with lots of grapefruit. tastes like an IPA lager. wonderful! does it get any better than this?

4.08/5 rDev +1%
Appearance: Clear gold - pours with a moderately sized, bright-white head - fades to a nice ring, leaves some spots and wisps of lacing
Smell: Grassy hops and some lager aromas - normally, I frown upon grassy smells, but it works here - herbal and spicy - touches of citrus, mostly lemon rinds - malts are pale and grainy, with a lot of sweetness
Taste: Grainy and hoppy - nicely balanced and highly drinkable - some citrus, mostly lemon - grassy, herbal, and spicy - mild to moderate bitterness - malts are grainy, bready, and light - very pale, but flavorful - some earthiness
Mouthfeel: Light to medium in body, smooth and crisp, nicely carbonated, refreshing
Overall: A unique and tasty lager
This is a classic. It's grassy, and yet I like it. It works well with the grainy malt profile and the slightly spicy lager yeast. I've had this a lot, and I plan to continue drinking it in the future.

12oz bottle in a pilsner glass.
served 2 months from enjoy by date.
pours a slightly cloudt straw yellow while yielding a 1" white/off-white head. decent head retention and lacing.
nose is citric hops (notably lemon zest) with secondary notes of grass, wheat, and malt. aroma translates well to the flavor; it's better, even. nice citric and grassy hop characters with some malt and wheat notes in the background. crisp and tasty; medium-bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.
overall i'm admittedly not a die-hard pilsner buff but this is a very good rendition. crisp, flavorful and refreshing.
