3.64/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance is a very light yellow, almost a greenish color. A couple finger-widths of foamy head which disperses quickly.

Smell is very faint, maybe a tiny bit of malty sweetness?

Taste is more assertive, lots of sweet grassy malt flavors combined with a touch of hop bitterness. The hops' herbal flavors is really nice.

Mouthfeel is thin bodied and crisp, appropriate for the style. Carbonation is fairly heavy, but their is a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Overall a pilsener that provides a nice flavor profile.

This is a crystal clear awesome looking Pilsener. Could have a little bit more gas but the color is excellent. Taste is very clear and light could deserve a little bit more hops. It belongs definitely to the premier league of Pilsener i had in the US.
