Hard to properly rate the look considering I'm drinking it at a dark bar, however, from what I can see it is a very pale straw color. I detect a nice hop aroma at first, however, as the thin white lace subsides and I get further along in the drink its a mostly malty aroma. Taste and feel are very clean, malty, bready but very little hops bite or bitterness. Low carbonation. Has neither the spicy quality or the hops kick of other continental pilsners I enjoy. An uncomplicated, very clean and smooth pilsner but ultimately a bit bland for my tastes.

Grainy pils malts on the nose with light spice and a hint of earthiness. Presents a very clean and crisp palate with light grain flavors leading to a crisp, spicy, clean hop finish. Light and dry.
