Pours bright golden almost yellow in color with a one finger white head that has decent retention.
Smell has some slight lemon grass and herbal hop aroma forward with light hints of light grainy very crisp bright yeasty aroma in the end.
Lots of fresh hop flavors are forward with a nice balance of light herbal and lemon rind. Yeast follows with a really clean crisp flavor. Malt comes in at the end with some bready lightly grainy flavors. Incredibly balanced.
Mouthfeel is crisp refreshing and light. A fair amount of hop oils and resin balance the body.

Served from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Pours gold, fizzy, bubbles, thick white head. Active. Translucent. Retention and lacing. Big pilsy smell. Quite german, and minerals too. Crisp taste, light lemon. Balanced hop. Refreshing. Great pils, nails the style. Bursts with flavor, but simple and drinkable. Spot on.

Pours bright, clear yellow with tiny-bubbled carbonation forming a lasting, creamy, white head. Lacing sticks down the glass.
The smell is of lemon, hay, and floral hops.
The taste of lemon and grass/hay. The soft but flavorful hops blend with the smooth, grainy malt. Sweet backbone complemented by a dry kiss in the finish. Very crisp and refreshing. Carbonation level fits it wonderfully.
A very well-done, true-to-style German-style pils. Very enjoyable and easy-to-drink!

Quickly frothed up and then dissipated mostly to leave a layer of foam and some nice lacing. Very little rising carbonation, only come to life after a sip. Deep yellow, quite clear.
Smell is fresh, floral, hoppy, slight grain, bit of lemon rind hanging in, some sweet malt as it warmed.
Hops are noticeable, bitter, slightly green tasting. Finish is where malt shows up and pulls it together, so this beer has character without going in one single direction. Hops are bitter, bright, floral, slightly metallic.
This beer is so smooth, easy to sip that it goes down fast without being boring. Carbonation is there, as the beer is drank carbonation opens up on the palate and its foaminess complements the medium-light body. Aftertaste left some dryness.
Great drinkability. Medium-light body, tasty, enough hop character to make it interesting, smoother on the finish. Need to find this on tap somewhere.

Pours a clear golden color with a slightly orange hue; frothy white head that retains well and leaves good lacing. Smell is of faint grass, spicy hops, and I get a little lemon and honey in there as well. Biscuity upfront, hints of honeycomb, hops are slightly spicy, but not overdone, a nice lemon zest too. Both body and carbonation are probably around medium levels, but very soft and refreshing on the tongue, quenching your thirst, but encouraging you to take another. Excellent beer; I plan on drinking copious amounts of this over the summer. Updated on July 17, 2007. Original smell was 4.5, taste was 5. Having had this plenty of times, I still rather enjoy it, but prefer Yokel or Edel-Pils to this one.
