A- golden straw with a pure white head. Not as lively looking as other Pilseners I've had. Anyway, nice head retention and great lacing.
S- biscuity grain, a little skunky. Not a good start here.
T- better than the smell. A little sweeter than expected, with a decent herbal/spicy hop bitterness. Really pleasant actually.
M- light, gentle carbonation, refreshing. The finish is watery.
O- aside from being light struck, it wasn't bad.

3.86/5 rDev +8.4%
DATE TASTED: April 26, 2014... GLASSWARE: Jever pokal... OCCASION: revisiting an old favorite... APPEARANCE: misty, murky golden yellow body; rocky, sporadic white head laces with wispy tentacles; medium effervescence... AROMA: holy Hallertau! metallic iron hammer a la Thor or a nine-iron to the nostrils--subtler hints of fragrant apple and pear with a bit of dough...a stronger, more forceful pilsner... PALATE: medium-bodied, crisp, almost biting mouthfeel--softens at the finish; highly drinkable, with a more lagerish body than expected...TASTE: apple/pear and good ol' Hallertau; a rather simple formula that also gives off fragrant waves of other fruits... OVERALL: a pleasant variation on the Bavarian theme--a pilsner that is a bit less clean and crisp, but retains enough of its style to cleanse and pucker; refreshing yet substantial...

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Skunky lager yeast, pilsner malts, some sweetness, herbal, and grassy.
Taste: Pilsner malts, layer yeast, herbal, spicy, grassy, a little sweet, and some bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, a little dry, light, and medium to high carbonation.
Overall: Easy drinking and traditional pilsner. A little more skunkiness than I would like, but still and enjoyable beer.
