A 12 fl oz can, packaged on 20th February 2017. Poured into a stemless tulip glass.

Appearance: A clear golden colour with a one and a half finger soapy white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left only sparse spotty lacing.

Aroma: Sweet, grainy malt, grass, floral, honey with a hint of corn.

Taste: Sweet and grainy malt with low bitterness, lemon, with hints of floral and herbal elements.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice crisp Pilsner, perfect for a hot day.

L: straw gold with rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" off-white cap with good retention.

S: spicy floral hops and faint cracker with a clean fermentation character.

T: The flavors start with medium rich malt flavors and spicy floral hops. It starts lightly sweet and dries out to a crisp finish. This is well balanced with moderate malt and hop bitterness.

F: medium to medium light body and medium carbonation.

O: This is a very well balanced and drinkable beer.

From 12oz bottle.

Crystal clear golden body with decent head and no lacing

Flavors are crisp like apples with robust hops adding a slightly bitter background. Really though it's all about how crisp it is - carbonation is intense.

Really like it.

Sparkling gold, nearly champagne-esque, with a thin bubbly white blanket and clingy, thin curtains of lace.

Smell is floral with corn and grass.

Taste is clean and bitter grass and grains.

Crisp and semi-dry.

A light gold coloring with a slight drawn head. An earthy, bread taste, that finishes with the expected bite. An enjoyable draft to accompany lunch

This beer pours up as a beautiful straw gold, clear with a nice clean head. Great aroma that has hints of cereal and bread, with a slight sharp tone of citrus. The flavor, however, is a bit thin and metallic. Not horrible, but not as crisp or refreshing as I'm accustomed to in a pilsner.
