look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

A- Pours light, one-dimentional golden hue, clean white head with pretty good retention.

S- Bread dough, grass or fresh hay, slight lemony brightness

T- Strikes a nice balance, slight sweetness finishing with a restrained bitterness

M- Very nice mouthfeel for the style. Not thin at all, noble hop flavor stays in the back and roof of mouth and throat

This is a decent pilsener. Not too shabby.

Pours a yellow, gold color. Not very transparent. Decent head.

Smells like a pilsener.

It's got a bitter pilsener taste with a lot of hops. I like hops.

Medium body with light carbonation.

This is good, not great.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Poured a nice light golden color. The beer had a large thick white head with great retention but eventually fades to give a great level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is biggest of a bready malt with notes of yeast, pepper and some lightly sweetened lemon citrus.

Taste – The taste begins mostly of a bready taste with some light lemon hop flavors. As the taste moves on the hop gets slightly stronger and the bready flavor becomes more “buttery” and takes on a more biscuit nature. In the end a light grassy flavor come to the tongue blending with the lemon to leave a lingering aftertaste..

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was of average thickness with a carbonation level that was also very average as well.

Overall – It’s a pretty good Pilsener with a decent flavor, feel and look. Worth a try, but nothing to go out of your way for.
