Pours a clear, very light, straw yellow with significant and persistent head.
Smell is slightly sweet and grassy. Very pleasant.
Taste is grassy with a bit more zesty spice than expected.
Crisp and refreshing. Not your typical pils.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, the date on bottom of can is 9/29/17 which I believe to be the canning date.

APPEARANCE: pours a slightly hazy, light golden color with one-finger, white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is light lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: crackers, grassy and a little spice.

TASTE: initially sweet then white crackers and a soft kiss of hops on the finish.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a good tasting beer but for a German Pilsener I have an expectation of being crystal clear and this was a little cloudy, not a big deal but you need to stand out from the crowd for me to be a repeat customer, I have lots of options so little things like this would prevent me from buying this one again, if the taste was spectacular I could overlook the appearance but the taste was closer to average.
