Served from the bottle into a pilsner glass

A- Poured a very clear light straw color with a big soapy white head with big bubbles. Lots of visible carbonation and lots of splashy lace

S- Big pilsner malt, floral, grassy, and spicy hop character. Some fruity and lemongrass notes

T- Dominant pilsner malt and grape flavors with grassy, floral, and spicy hops. Some lemon notes and a slightly metallic finish

M- Very refreshing, highly carbonated, dry. What a pilsner should be like

O-Solid pilsner all around from the appearance, mouthfeel, and aroma. The metallic notes on the taste bring it down a little for me though.

A - Very bubbly very yellow pee colored pils. A decent bit of sticky white head and touch of lace.
S - Very inviting it has a smooth grain edge with very floral hops. No skunk detected is lovely.
T - Its a nice bit of premium corn flavors cutting the floral hop bitterness and leaving you with a grainy dry finish.
M - Bubbly like a sparkling cider I had recently. Very light but full of flavor.
Overall 10X better than the pee water we have here in the states. Well worth the price at 10 bucks a six pack.

Smells like a delicious hops bonfire, tastes like clean and crisp grain with floral, earthy German hops, and some smoke, good malt flavor but going completely dry and pretty bitter in the finish, nice stuff.

Interesting new 250 character minimum they have for reviews now...

Poured a brilliant straw gold with two fingers of fluffy white head. Mild, slightly soapy aroma with a hint of grain.

Moderate carbonation and a light mouthfeel. Grainy malt with a hint of sweetness and an assertive bitterness (earthy, grassy) that lingers on the finish.

Full-flavored while remaining crisp, balanced, and refreshing. Very nice.

small head, straw with a few rising bubbles.
smells and tastes bitter. typical pils.
overall, very pils-y. not my favorite style, but always interesting. always the same too. easy to drink, easy to session with a side of whiskey. i need to try an evening of pils to learn the differences....

Served in a mug. There is a half inch foamy head atop a clear straw-golden body. There is really nice sticky lacing.

The aroma has a nice blend of herbal hops and some straw malt.

The taste blends a bready mildly sweet malt flavor with spicy hops that add a bit of tang in the finish. This has a nice smooth flavor leading to a great crisp finish.

This is light bodied with aharp carbonation. I really enjoy this.

Poured crystal clear, golden, with a short-lived white head that left some spotty lacing.

While the light malt dominate the hops in the aroma, the reverse is true of the flavor, with the hops more prominent even in mid-taste.

M: medium+ carbonation; medium body.

O: no flaws but nothing stands out either.
