Had this on tap at Dewey's Pizza in Newport, KY. Served in a pint glass.
Appearance: The body of the beer is a dark golden/straw color, topped by a thin, wispy head of eggshell-colored foam which lingers around as a collar but leaves little in the way of lacing. Some carbonation bubbles rise to the top.
Smell: Very nice and crisp pilsner smell. There are some grassy and spicy notes from the hops as well as a solid backing of sweetness from the malt. More on the hoppy end of the spectrum, but still very balanced and clean on the nose, although it's a little faint.
Taste: Crisp and dry, but very good. Some spicy and grassy hops hit the palate at first and twist into some citrus notes mid-palate, something which becomes more detectable as the beer warms. The beer finishes with notes of honey and sweetness from the malt. A fairly simple beer overall, but this was refreshing and just what I was looking for at the time.
Mouthfeel: Very crisp and clean in the mouth, slightly dry finish. Well-placed carbonation helps the light-medium body go down very smoothly.
A very solid pilsner, glad I got to try this. Maybe it doesn't stack up against others I've had, but when paired with the right food, it's really quite good.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a hazy, light gold with a slightly off white head that has minimal retention but does show a decent side glass lace.
Aroma: Fruity, herbal, spicey, clean grain with floral scents.
Taste: Sharp lemony bitter hop presence, bready and dry bitterness.
Excellent German Pilsner with hoppiness not often enjoyed in this style.
Serving type: bottle
