Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and decent lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of wheat, hint of hops, and some distinct herbal/grassy aroma. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of wheat, hint of hops, and some distinct herbal/grassy aroma. Overall, weaker appearance, good aroma, blend, and feel, but the herbal/grassy flavor dominates.

Pours a clear deep straw producing 1.5 fingers of white, shortlived head leaving little lacing. Aroma is pale & cracker malt, some grain; hop profile is floral, lemon & faint grass. Taste is pale & cracker malt, white bread, with crisp, clean grain, some honey & more intense hop notes bittering in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium-high carbonation, crisp & clean, finishing with a peppery bite across the tongue.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Small amount of slightly off white head with slight lacing. It pours a dark golden yellow with just a slight haze. It's aroma reminds me of butter and lemon. Taste is slightly citrus with a bit of a grassy finish. Very little hop character. Very light on the tongue. It's an average beer, and doesn't quite resemble the other pilsners I've had.
