look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured into a large pilsner glass (the type that looks kind of like a wheat glass). Almost clear yellow color (slightly golden-orange when held up to light). The fluffy white head and sticky lace was just about the only thing it had going for appearance.

The aroma wasn't all that impressive. Kind of skunky. I was starting to wonder if I'd like it...

...Well, turns out I did like it. The flavor was light and crisp, but with a definite herbal hop character in the background. There was some slight skunkiness in the flavor, but not too much... I always wonder about how long my beer was sitting on the shelf at the liquor store before I purchase it (and how much light it's been exposed to), so I don't necessarily blame skunkiness on the brewer.

The mouthfeel was near perfect, except for a VERY slight drying (less than most beers, really). It's sessionable as a mofo - almost goes down too well. I might deem this the most refreshing pilsner I've ever had.
