my favorite part of the post-holiday has to be walking into giant eagle and seeing an abundance of 5L german mini kegs!
A- comes out forcefully once tapped, so the head is big and rocky and white as snow. awfully wrinkly as it settles and bridges of lace are clinging to the sides of the glass as it slowly and reluctantly settles down. super ultra crazy clear golden body. i can see the wrinkles in my fingers through it. this seriously looks as good as any pils i've ever seen and if i remember correctly, my toppers are veltins and noble pils.
S- floral somewhat fruity apple and grape skin hops with a grassy earthy edge. almost smoky in a sort of way, or rather steamy, as if green things were being heated, think fresh grass and herbs on the fire. lemony kinda, with a mild citric twang. white bread and cracker malt hold things together.
T- a bit cardboardy in the taste from the malt, but the hops are bright and floral and fruity and the taste of white grape and green apple hits me immediately with a bit of pear. not overly bitter, the hops have more complex flavor than bitterness. grassy fruity and earthy, apple, cucumber, dill, maybe something like spinach?? with a bit of citrus. i don't think i've ever used spinach as a comparison but it really fits here. finishes with a great balance and mild bitterness.
MF- wholesome feel for a pils, but still light and bubbly enough to fit the style admirably. a little sweeter than most and not so dry, but the feel compels me to reach for the glass again and again.
D- this one is a solid B++ and i'm glad i have another 4.5 liters to go. something makes me wanna break out my 36oz spaten oktoberfest mug and tear this bitch up. i will not have a problem emptying this baby keg.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Pilsner malts, typical lager skunk, grassy hops, and a little sweetness.
Taste: Pilsner malts, toasted grains, grassy hops, mild bitterness, and a little sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light bodied, a little dry, and medium carbonation.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, white grape juice, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and quite refreshing.

3.65/5 rDev -4.2%

Pours bright, gold and crystal clear. Medium-sized white head. Surprisingly good head retention with some decent lacing. The aroma is clean and sweet with fresh barley. Just a little bit of mustiness, possibly from the travel distance/time. It has a simple sugary, doughy flavor. There's a touch of herbal, grassy, spicy hops. It's all very gentle, though. A touch of cider. The taste is similar, though the hops come through more. Moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. The hops have a spicy, grassy bitterness to them. It fades pretty quickly. Finishes pretty dry. Very easy to drink. Gently effervescent mouthfeel. Quite light. It's not a dramatic beer, but it's solid enough.
