Pours a clear golden straw color with a medium white head that disappears quickly. Scent is grassy with a hint of lemon at first. A good amount of hops for a pilsner. Slight german malt aroma. A bit of grain as well. Nice smell for a pilsner. Taste is very lemony at first with some subtle hoppiness...which immediately turns to a good amount of hoppiness. Grassy hops with some nice German malt flavor with crisp, earthy flavors. Mouthfeel is light bodied and refreshing. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is very tasty for this style. Not my particularly favorite style, but this is one of my favorites when it comes to this genre.

On tap at a random happy hour spot in Philly. Served in a shaker.

Pour: Completely clear straw yellow with a finger and a half white head that recedes pretty quickly.

Smell: Light floral and grassy hoppiness that has some light caramel and bready malts.

Taste: Follows the nose very well, building upon the floral and grassy bitterness, adds some citrus, and finishes with a great bready maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Super light a refreshing on a hot day. Bitterness lingers mildly well.

Overall: A really, really enjoyable pilsner. Will get this again.
