Appearance: Pours a light golden yellow color with a creamy white head.

Smell: The aroma is big pilsner malts and sweet honey with a floral hop attribute.

Taste: floral hops, fruity malts and a hint of alcohol this is simply everything pilsner doubled. Honey and orange and lemon hide beneath the zippy hops and fruity finish.

Mouthfeel: This smooth medium body beer has moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Aside from the 8.1% ABV this is a very drinkable beer. It is not a session beer but great choice to accompany a meal.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

Thanks to cesky for including this in a trade.

Pours light golden yelllow with a thin head that is pretty well-retained. Thin rings of vanishing lace stick to glass.

The smell is grassy/grainy/floral, a bit doughy.

The taste is better than the nose, but not quite enough to lift the score. It is grassy/grainy - very well-balanced - floral, lemony contintental-type hops and earthy/nutty maltiness work well together.

The feel is creamy, yet crisp.

This is a well-made brew. A tradtional pils that has been pumped-up. Drinkable despite alcohol notes.

Having enjoyed this one immensely in the past (if memory serves), I was still leary of picking up the new $10/4packs (previously $9/6packs), although I eventually did due to an upcoming trade. Poured a crisp golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aromas of slightly floral hops, biscuit and pepper. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, with flavors of hops, biscuit and a slight pepperiness.

White gold with loose snowy froth that sets and leaves whisps. Honey on cream crackers and wildflower and grass nose.
Butter, lemon curd, musk melon and country loaf cut by big lemongrass and aniseseed hops.
Citrus zest bitter, slight soap and licorice linger. Medium verging towards full, chewy, round, burny aftertaste, sticky.

Chewy body, herbal hops, syrupy malts, and a kick - nails the style. Can't drink more than one, but shouldn't anyway. Cloys a bit; hops could clean up a bit more, but I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt and put that down to age (labelled 5/26/11 - forums tell me that's a best-by date.)
