3.65/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - light yellow color. Nice one finger white head that disappears fairly quickly. Looks quite refreshing on this hot 4th of July.

Smell - smells of floral and wheat appear first. Ends with a hint of orange.

Taste - light refreshing beer. Quenches the thirst if that makes sense. Tinge of bitterness after swallowing. Definitely a session beer.

Mouthfeel - normal Pilsner mouthfeel.

Overall - definitely not my favorite lager, but I would say its in my upper half.

3.79/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured a clear gold with a short-lived fizzy white head. A little hangs on, though, and leaves behind some lacing. The aroma is a light, but pleasant, offering some floral hops and a light biscuit note. The taste is good, but seems stuck deciding between going with a more noble-hop forward approach or a more bready malty path. It doesn't taste bad, but it's missing some of the depth either one of those aspects offers. It has a nice thinner weight to the body and a pleasant dry finish. It is a very good pilsner.
