500 mL can from Trader Joe's.
Pours a golden yellow color that's fairly clear with a big, frothy white head. Head fades rather quickly to an uneven cap.
Aroma is really nice, I thought. Plenty of spicy noble hops with a hint of light malt sweetness. Very crisp.
Taste is similar to the aroma, with light malt sweetness followed by spicy, floral hop taste and a lightly bitter finish. A bit of sourness in the end takes it down a notch, for me.
Mouthfeel is fairly light and smooth, but does have more body and character than the average macro lager.
Very smooth and pretty good. The slight sourness keeps this from getting 4.0's from me.

Pale straw colour. More pale than most lagers. Very large amount of bubbles streaming up the tall pilsner glass. An ok head and good lacing left sticking to the sides to the end of the drink.
Lovely herbal hop aroma. Sweet and leafy smelling.
The taste, as with the aroma, is of herbal hops with and is very delicate and pleasant. The finish is very dry with a lingering bitterness at the end of the sip.
There is a great mineral water mouthfeel with light carbonation.
Overall this is a superb German pilsener. Ticks all the boxes for the style and is characterful enough to be considered interesting as well as thirst quenching.
My mark out of one hundred would 87.

3.85/5 rDev +11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Light straw. Good carbonation. Decent head that goes away rather quickly.
Smell: Light malt, light hops, and just the slightest hint of skunkiness.
Taste: Malt with a nice touch of bitterness from the hops on the finish. There is a flavor there that I can't quite place, but I find it rather appealing. Nothing off-putting.
Mouthfeel: Clean. Crisp. On the light side of medium bodied.
Overall: An enjoyable beer that is perfect for warmer temperatures. One that I would definitely buy again.
