One of the best pilsner beers I've had. Unique in flavor and supreme drinkability. I haven't seen a six pack of this yet, but when I do, I will definitely get it.

Nice golden pils appearance with good lacing but not perfectly clear. Neutral in the nose; no marked malt or hop coming through. Seemed a bit light for the style and I was really looking for the perfect balanced crispness you get with a world class pils but it was not there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
