After hearing some discussion on this beer I decided to pick some up. Decided to go with cans as I felt that they would probably have held up a little better over time and distance. The brew pours to a nice golden color with a thick frothy white head that had great retention and left a nice amount of lacing. Carbonation is good as bubbles are flowing up from the bottom of the glass. Nice aroma, grainy malt scent with some slight hops that seem to give off lemon and a slightly medicine smell. The flavor is good, seems to be a refreshing brew, nice real summer brew because of the lightness, crispness, carbonation and sweet malt and lemon flavors from the hops. I am glad that I picked this brew up, nice to get a understanding of what a Pilsner should be, will be one that I will try to get friends to try this as I think this could be a nice break from some of the macro stuff that they insist on. As far as drinkability, on a warm day I could really have a number of these, especially at the 4.8% ABV, they go down very easily.

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.
