A: Clear light golden in color.

S: Soft smell of bready sweet malts.

T: Taste is the star of this beer. The smell carries through in the taste although magnified, bready with an outstanding malts note.

M: Mouthfeel is a tad heavy. Still on the light body, although I'd prefer just a little lower gravity.

O: This is one of the best, perhaps best pils I've ever had. It will certainly become a benchmark for future reference.
