3.58/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I'll start off by saying I'm not a huge fan of the style (I prefer hoppy American pilsners), but its beer, so it can't be all bad.

A: Pours a pale, clear gold with nice head. The carbonation was pretty cool, hard to decribe, but cool.

S: Crisp malts-that can't be corn in the nose, can it?

T: Crisp clean malts all around

M: Very light and dry

D: A solid german pils, can't go wrong if you are in the 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.
