The best of Italian pilsner. But why?
A 3 fast fade
as expected with no lace shards
S 3.25 as expected. Watery
T 3.5 better than expected. Lemony. Cleansing scrubbing. A bit of corn grain starchiness.
F. 3.5 clean good finish dry. Tingly. More body than adjunct.
O best of Italian pilsner. But why?

330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 6/20/2016. Pours crystal clear pale golden/straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, biscuit, light honey, floral, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, biscuit, light honey, floral, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, corn, biscuit, floral, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a good pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Flavorful with a nice body for the low ABV; never feels thin or watery. A nicely enjoyable offering.

From notes taken 10/17/16:

Clear straw gold, with white foamy head of moderate retention. NIce splotchy, delicate lacing. Aromas of grain, semi-harsh, with slight grassy and lemony suggestions. Soon mellows to sweeter smell. Much the same on the palate, with addition of balanced floral to soapy hops. Lighter medium body, don’t notice carbonation at first, but let it settle and sudsy tingles gently increase, making for a nice, fluffy, quaffable finish.
