3.38/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle.

Pretty unimpressive color, light honey yellow. No head and very little lacing, but great clarity. Smells malty & spicy. There's a good dose of noble hops. Very German. Not much complexity but surprisingly fresh-smelling. The taste leads off with a pretty good mix of spicy hop and sweet malt character. The body manages to be light but not thin. Hops take over on the swallow but never really become that assertive. The beer doesn't taste very strong or complex or interesting. Its real strength is the balance. It's very refreshing, and while you won't find anything new or exciting here, it is without a doubt a pleasant drinking experience. Highly quaffable. A superb session beer if you're in a German kind of mood.

4.46/5  rDev +28.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.

Arkansas

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.
