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

Appearance: Clear deep golden body, with a massive, quite dense snow-white head, creamy in appearance, and rather persistent. The lacing resembles frozen drizzle, scattered across a window pane. Profuse waves of carbonation drift lazily to the surface.

Aroma: A strong cracker malt presence vies with a wave of crisp noble hops.

Taste: Begins with pale malt, reminiscent of fresh-baked white bread, and a strong flourish of citrus and herbal hops. As the taste progresses, the hops rise to ascendency, leaving the malt as a moderate background presence. Finishes with a long, lingering, but mild bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant, with modest carbonation zest.

Drinkabilty/notes: A very nice, drinkable example. Perhaps not as sharply-drawn as a classic European Pilsener, but quite nice and refreshing, nonetheless.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
