Straw yellow, with a shallow white head - not much lacing here.
Much like a traditional pilsner on the nose, with added layers of hoppy spiciness, and a bit of honey-like sweetness.
Mildy spicy, with underlying greenery - not unlike noshing on a bit of pastured grass. A broad base of hops here, but it's not overpowering - well balanced. Mildly resinous.
Dry, with a lasting bitter sweetness and some astringency. Carbonated enough that beer-heads will enjoy it, but not so much that a traditional pilsner drinker wouldn't.
One of the more interesting pilsners I've had - it provides enough of what you'd expect from an SA beer, but still resounds of a true pilsner.
