4.53/5  rDev +20.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance-Pours a hazy straw-yellow into the pokal glass, moderate head with excellent lacing, the head quickly recedes to a film.

Aroma-Nice and spicy mix of noble hops steals the show with aromas of lemongrass and early spring flowers, some biscuity notes in the background but this is primarily about the noble hops.

Taste-Similar to the nose, some crackery pilsener malt upfront lays a foundation and then the noble hops do their thing making for a crisp, dry and spicily refreshing beverage.

Mouthfeel-Crisp, light and with lively carbonation; perfect pilsener body.

Overall-A great, quality pilsener; glad to see more good lager styles cropping up in the US.

Serving type: can
