Can't say much about how it looks because I drink this one right from the can. It comes in a box of six which works out well as I've never wanted to drink fewer than six at a time. This is a beer for sitting outdoors in the sun and cultivating skin cancer.

Reviewed 1-17-15; best by 7-23-15; pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy gold with ample carbonation and a 2-3 finger foamy off-white head. Very nice retention. Decent lacing.

Aroma: Very crisp pilsner malt. Slightly citrusy, fruity hoppy aroma - very clean - lemon. Floral. Perfect lager aroma. Clean.

Taste: Dry citrusy arrival, dry mid-palate, very bitter, floral finish.

Mouthfeel: Heavier than expected. Lots of carbonation, but a soft, slightly slick feel.

Overall: Comparing this to the German pilsner (Bitburger) and Hofbrau Original I had [on tap] last night, this is missing something in terms of body, and is over-hopped. Really a great beer, but not one I'd buy regularly. Like Prima Pils - goes for "craft" points by pushing the envelope at the expense of drinkability.
