look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance
Clear, sparkling golden yellow
Smell
A bit of hops to the nose, slight honey sweet scents, minor malt
Taste
Light hops and of course that pilsner presence, clean finishing
Overall
Definitely a good beer, a nice change as well from the IPAs, torpedos, bigfoot, and celebration ales. Good for the summer, light and clean. I don’t always thirst for a pilsner, but when I do this is a favorable choice.
