Pale golden-straw with brilliant clarity capped by dense white head that remains.
Nose is mild with lightly grainy Pils malt and floral hop-aroma. I pick up a good amount of green apple and cidery notes presumably from Acetaldehyde, i.e., a yeast byproduct.
Flavor is grainy Pils malt and light apple juiciness that both get dominated by hop-bitterness lasting throughout the medium-dry finish.
Medium light and oily-coating mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
In short, a plain German Pilsener with apple quality indicating a bit premature beer that hits the spot nonetheless. Still, I have no idea what puts this beer atop of the others of the style.
(330 ml, into pilsener flute)
