12 oz bottle served in a COAST brewing curved pint. Split with the fiancee.

A: Pours a solid gold color with a pure white head forming on pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap with tons of sticky lace.

S: Sticky German hops with that specific spicy bite. Pale malts with a little bit of mineral-like qualities to it.

T: Typical German hop profile, slightly gluey with pale cracker malt and some wheat like qualities. Lightly spiced hop quality as well.

M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Slightly sweet finish.

O: Pretty typical German style lager. The hops are the star which is standard for the style. Nothing mind blowing.

A- it poured a lightly hazy golden yellow with a two finger fluffy head. Wonderful sticky lacing

S- I could smell pale malts, bready yeasts and some mildly bitter hops. A little honey sweetness was there as well.

T- I could taste the bread and wheat notes right away. Some sweetness from the malts and a bit of honey. There was a bit if citrus there as well. The hops came in towards the back. Well balanced and really enjoyable

M- crisp & dry with a good amount of carbonation. Moderate mouthfeel with a medium finish.

O- I'm not really big on pilsners, but I could drink this all day. Really well balanced and just plain enjoyable

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance - Medium yellow. A little hazy. Short white persistent head.

Smell - Light pale malt. A little bread. Light grassy hops.

Taste - Initially bready. Not overly sweet. Nice complex dose of hops. Mostly citrusy - orange and lemon, but some unobtrusive grassiness there too. Excellent balance. Crisp.

Mouthfeel - Medium.

Overall - This is a damn fine beer and mad drinkable to boot.
