2.85/5 rDev -17.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A: Pours a light, translucent gold with plenty of head. Carbonation levels are quite active as evidenced by the large, foamy head and the plethora of bubbles climbing up to the top of the beer.
S: Sweet, light fruits, adjunct grains (corn), sugar and grass. An almost cider-like aroma.
T: Sweet malts, adjunct grains, pear, grape and a floral hop bouquet up front, followed by some butter and melon and finishing with bittering, lemon citrus hops and a twang of metal and mineral water that lingers on the tongue.
M: Light bodied with active, crisp carbonation. It feels nice on the tongue and goes down smooth with a bit of chewiness in the middle. Finishes dry with a bit of astringency.
O: Overall, not one of my favorite Pilseners because of the bitterness and astringency; not sure what all the hype is about. It's definitely drinkable and would pair nicely with anything off the grill, especially white meats, but I'd pass for something a bit more balanced.

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.

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.
