Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a solid half inch white head that slowly dissipates, leaving lines of lacing.

Aroma is slightly sweet grain and crackery pilsner malt. Light floral hops are barely detectable. Citrus becomes more evident after a sip.

Flavor reveals citrus pith, grapefruit, and floral hop character, much more present than in the aroma, riding on a backbone of pilsner malt into a fairly dry, moderately bitter finish. Floral hops linger throughout.

Body is moderate, With slightly high carbonation and a bit of an astringent grain finish.

Best example of a pilsner I've had in a while, though the hops are over the top. But that's good for my personal preference.

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

Appearance:
Bright straw color, slight hazy. Lots of fine bubbles rising up to the top. Thick soapy head.

Aroma:
Lots of spicy noble hops in the nose. Sweet malts. Lemony.

Taste:
Burst of spicy-herbal hops up front, but it's not overwhelming. Sweet pale malts, bready, biscuity, a little grassy. Finish is peppery, crisp, semi-dry. Body is light, very refreshing, lively carbonated, highly drinkable.
