look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Tasted On: 02-22-2014
Freshness: Best by 09-20-2014
Packaging: 330ml green bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Purchased: 6-pack from World Market

Pours clear, with a golden color and a good head of white foam. Shows good lacing and head retention. The aromas feature hay and grassy hop notes, plus some lemon and a light breadiness.

The taste has a low bitterness and also a slight sweetness to balance. Hop flavors are spicy and seem to match the typical Noble/Pilsner hop flavors. Light bodied, the beer is moderately carbonated and was refreshing with a finish of spicy hops.

Nothing spectacular here but a good, solid old world pilsner.

3.11/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pour from a bottle. Slightly darker-than-straw yellow color. About a finger of head, fairly long lasting. Lacing noted down the glass.

Smell is pleasant. Hoppy and sweet. Very nice.

Initial taste is slightly astringency. Subsequent sips become more pleasant. Fairly balanced hop and malt characteristics. Neutral mouthfeel, goes well with style.

Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing special either.

Taste 31/40
Feel 8/10
Drinkability 18/20

Overall 79/100

Rather straight forward and simple. Won't Stand out. Also was rather surprising how easy to drink and enjoy it was. While I may never seek it out again for me. May make a great 'gateway' beer for an adjunct drinker. I have I thing great to say about it and nothing bad~
