Poured from the bomber into a tall Goose Island 312 weizen glass.
Pours golden straw yellow with a fluffy pure white head. Head drops down to a thin but resilient film across the beer's surface but sticks around. Lacing is impressive at first but not very resilient.
Nose is biscuity malt aromas with a hint of grassiness and a fleeting note of acerbic citrus.
Taste is very clean and straightforward. Much like the nose - biscuity malt, some grassiness. Very slight hints of sour lemon. Usually with a beer with this flavor profile I'm expecting off-flavors and the typical low-quality adjunct grain funk, but this is crisp and clean. Finish starts off with a surge of satisfying hop bitterness, followed by a palate clearing dryness and giving slight rise to a bitter herbal, hoppy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, fairly light bodied, but not a pushover. Carbonation is active and what you would expect from the style - part of why it is so drinkable and refreshing.
It's not a fancy, innovative beer nor is it a big brooding complex beer. It's simple, straightforward, but well-executed. Not the best pilsner out there, but it does it's job. I've been drinking a lot of sweet and fancy beers and winter seasonals lately. This is a nice, crisp and refreshing change of pace at the moment.

Very clear, pale yellow beer with large white foam. Head retention is very good.
Taste is light, with slight malt sweetness and a light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is moderately light and well carbonated. Clean finish.
At 4.8% it is a smooth, light lager. A great German summer beer.
