Clear yellow pour with nice head and lacing. Huge hoppy, perfumy, fruity nose for a pilsner. In fact, I couldn't get enough of it. I had to take a huge sniff before every sip. The taste is much the same. Amazing fresh picked hops tang to it, albeit subdued in comparison to an IPA. Fairly complex with hints of lemon, grass and metal present. Nice crisp, refreshing, dry finish with just a subtle hint of bitterness. Hugely drinkable. I usually prefer the extremely bitter pilsners like Bitburger, but this was unique and was almost closer to a pale ale than a pils. I have to say this beer has unseated Victory Prima Pils as my favorite American pilsner. This is one top notch beer!
