look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Dark gold in color, a little darker than I expected. The foamy head froze on the surface at an inch height. Lacing is impressive.

Green and floral hops with grassy notes and an authentic German pilsener malt. Very pleasing.

Nice and dry. Crispy with a bitter aftertaste. Pleasantly pilsener-esque with light grassiness and hardly any metallic flavors. Not very bright, just malty with a splinter of hops. Very balanced and drinkable. Nice body, if not a bit too milky. Carbonation is on the side of unplugged. It works.

Pretty solid. Without the usual craft fuck-ups for the style, however, it's slightly bland. Still hits the spot.

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

A - Fairly decent carbonation just a 1/4 inch of head that settles rather quickly. Bright clear yellow with mild bubbles.
S - A bit of pilsner malts, soft hop notes, swear I smell corn. Little to no skunk which is nice.
T - Very dry, slightly sour like a green apple flavor with notes and a minty sort of hop tone. Its actually quite good.
M - Light and fizzy easy to quaff back.

Overall quite a tasty brew worth picking up!
