Very clear, barely effervescent with no head. Taste was very salty, not very pleasant. dry. Overall would not have again.

Another one from the beer of the month club
12 oz bottle

Pours a pale yellow color (Didn't want to say urine but it's accurate)with a smallish 1/4 inch white head that disappeared quickly. No visible lacing.

Smells of spice, maple and a bit of honey

Taste is very crisp and light with a nice little bitter aftertaste

Prickly feel. Carbonation lasts up to the last sip

This is a good German pilsner . The Hallertau hops are interesting. Would be good on a hot summer day after mowing the lawn...

Pretty average pilsner. Has some more bitterness than expected but not bad. Carries all the typical grassy Pilsner tastes and finishes clean and semi dry. Would have again but would not seek out.

Poured into a pint glass. A light yellow color, just a film of head, lots of carbonation. A real hoppy smell and taste. Tasted orange zest up front with a hoppy profile, the carbonation leaving with a tingle on the tongue and a clean palette. A very hoppy Pilsner leaving a great tasting palette! Wouldn't be my favorite, but I would drink it again.
