2.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

On-tap at Rattle ‘n Hum, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear light amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that left a bit of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell seems to be more like an amber/red ale with hints of toasted malts and sweetness.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of toasted malts and a bit of malty sweetness with muted hints of bready malts. No bitterness is detectable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and extremely smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to taste more like an amber/red ale compared to a pilsener; however it is very easy to drink and I would have no problem drinking a few of these in succession.

2.9/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap at Rattle N Hum in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear deep golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a three quarter finger tall creamy off-white head that reduces by about 50% but has very good head retention properties and leaves an even thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts, honey sweetness, and floral hops.

T: Fairly strong flavors of bready malts with some light honey-like sweetness. There is a light hint of floral hop but very little if any bitterness is present (which is a little unusual for the style).

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: Not a very typical example of the style and not what I expected when ordering a German Pilsener - the mouthfeel, smell, and taste are all a little different. Easy to drink, enjoyable, and sessionable.
