Single bottle in a pilsner glass. Well before (6+ months) stale/end-of-freshness date.
Appearance is your classic pilsner - golden yellow, carbonation constantly bubbling up from the bottom of the glass, thin white head upon pouring with a very minor amount of lacing on the glass as I drank it. Foam settled down to 1/16" layer across the top.
Smell at first is a hint of that hop skunkiness along with a mild amount of oranges.
Taste is crisp, nothing sweet but not exceedingly bitter. It doesn't dominate and the tastes present are fleeting.
Mouthfeel - well carbonated and prickly on the tongue, but refreshingly coating of the throat. That feeling of a long drink when you really needed one.
Drinkability - I plan to buy more soon and it went very well with the BBQ spare-rib dinner.

4.46/5 rDev +28.9%

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.
