Appearance: A pretty pils. Pours with a finger and a half of crisp white head which settled in but was present while drinking. Golden straw yellow color with a clean, transparent body. Active carbonation is very bright, like it should be.

Smell: Straw and buttery yeast jump out first. Plenty of grassy hops on the body with some slight tropical fruits notes as well. Bread and dough kind of bring the front full circle and ride this one out.

Taste: Lots of grass and straw hops on the front. The body evens out with bread and some bright semi-sweet yeast notes. Some nuttiness rides through and lingers on the palate long after drinking.

Mouthfeel: Clean hop profile, nutty and bready malts are welcome on the body.

Overall: A very well executed german pils. Great easy drinker that you can easily obtain at a reasonable value. Give it a try.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener

L: yellow, crystal clear, 1/2-inch white foam head that looks like it's sticking; lots of bubbles rising up in the column ... not the most I've ever seen, but enough to form a good white collar and a decent little skin of foam on the top

S: corn, grain, sour grain, sour corn ... easily the weakest link of this brew -- if you try hard enough, you can smell some bread malt, but it's mostly sour grain

T: English pale ale fruity ... it's super sweet and shows no hop-profile at all at first -- it's a bread-malt bomb that comes off very English pale ale-like; then the hops show up, real green/grassy with only the slightest bitterness all in the most subtle form ... the hops give more flavor than bitterness ... it's not a "bite"; get some earth/black pepper hop tastes late

F: a tad soft for the style ... there's a lot of bubbles in the column and I'm tasting/feeling the carbonation, yet it's just a hair watery and kind of slick ... could be me

O: that fruity start is kind of wild for the style ... it's so sweet it truly comes off like an English pale ale at first; that sweet fruity twist is cool, and overall it's a tasty, drinkable brew, but it's just a hair above average. i'd use this beer for "gateway" purposes because it's so sweet to start off with that even non-beer drinkers might enjoy it
