look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Served in a pint glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle.

A - translucent orange. A little darker than what I was expecting. Head dissipates quick but leaves a good bit of lacing.

S - Straightforward. Hoppy, yeasty, light. Nothing special, but still good.

T - Light on taste too. Slightly citric and resiny, with little alcohol bite. Not powerful, but easy on the palate.

M - Fine carbonation, clean finish, little aftertaste.

D - Like most Pilsner, it's really drinkable. If you're looking to knock back quite a few, this one will do the trick.

Overall - I should try to get my light beer drinking father to try this one. It's not very complex, but it tastes enjoyable enough and is not heavy at all. A good gateway to craft beer.

3.79/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and moderate effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy white foam. Pretty good!

Smell: lightly sweet malt with a yeasty character and a bit of a floral aroma. I rather like it.

Taste: drier than the aroma; there's a little bit of graininess here and a less-floral, more noble hop character. Bitterness and hops are subtle, but appropriate to a German Pilsner. I dig it.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and concomitant creaminess.

Overall: highly quaffable Pilsner. It's not crisp and bitter like a Czech, but is appropriately rounded like a German version of the style. I think it is a success.
