This is such a well balanced beer and I was not usually a pilsner fan years ago. This is the one that started the change for me when it was introduced.
A huge and rocky head that stays forever it seems and slowly fades to a light covering. Tons of lace all along the glass as I drink. Looks like a good triple from all the decoration. A lightly hazed gold with gentle carbonation.
Smell is sweet malt and husky grains with a good dose of floral and spicy hops. A sweet and yeasty dinner roll doughiness.
Taste is superbly balanced. Clean and crisp malt with a dry spicy hops and good clean bittering in the finish. Dry with a cereal grain flavor as tell. A light mineral taste that flows into saaz hops. Just a touch of grapefruit skin. Very clean. A crisp, dry and refreshing feel is complimented by a tingly carbonation the has a touch of creaminess at times
Such a great quaffer. Right behind a hefe for sessioning.

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.
