I love a good German pils, this one was flooded with pelletized hop flavor. The classic lemon herbal notes of the Saaz hops were metallic and concentrated. Didn't hit me with balance at all. Appearance was it was super pale semi hazy golden with a large white frothy head that left behind ample lacing. The nose was semi sweet with biscuit malt and smelled of mild citrus and herbal hop bursts. Mouthfeel was light bodied hop pellet bitterness was left on the palate. Not a horrible beer just was looking for more balanced mix of malts and hops I got a one sided watery hop blast of bitterness from the pellets. I would drink it again but get some mix of malt and hop in the flavor.
