750ML bottle poured (gradually) into a 12 oz. pokal.
A: A very lovely hay colored beer, slightly hazy with a nice big soapy bubbly head.
S: Has the bready/biscuit notes typical of a pilsner but with a nice addition of floral hops and zesty lemon.
T: Follows the nose. Bready, lemon zest, floral hops. More bitter than I expected.
M: Crisp and refreshing. Carbonated well. Alcohol presence is unnoticed. Drinks very much like a normal pilsner.
O: At first I was a a bit disappointed. by the time I had worked through the bottle midway, my mind had changed. It is a very tasty beer that I wouldn't mind having again.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
