Pours a clear golden straw color. Minimal white head that disappears quickly into the beer.

Nose features grainy malt, grass, and lemon. Hints of other fruits, maybe a pear.

Tastes is sweet on the tongue at first, buttery, finishing with grassy notes, very faint citrus hops.

The mouthfeel is a bit heavy for a German Pilsener. It's balanced, but far from crisp and refreshing.

Overall, its an ok representation of a style that I enjoy on summer days.
