look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a clear, pale golden colour with slow bead in the glass. Head is thin, white and creamy but not good at retaining. OK.

Smell is largely grainy, with cereal husks and a hint of sticky rice to it. Overlain with very mild grassy hop note, borders on tangy and citric but there's just not enough to it.

Taste is quite bitter but with a nice, nutty grain character throughout. Touch of apple juice on the mid before mostly phenolic hops take over midway, hint of grass clippings and grapefruit that get slightly ashy and astringent late. Since the grain is still there it sort of produces an overall toasted grain flavour, but still quite a phenolic, overpowering finish. Not unpalatable though and a fairly well-constructed palate.

Quite fizzy as a pils should be, but a real heaviness on the back from the hop pull, can't say I'm a fan.

Bit too much on the back from the bitterness, needs to be cleansing without adding too much flavour.
