Poured from a 12 oz can into pilsner style glass

Look: mostly clear, light carbonation, yellow in color, white foamy head.

Smell: distant smell of lemon rinds, grassy hops and biscuit malts.

Taste: more malt forward with a great hop presence that doesn't overwhelm. Kudos on the balance; this is a nice one. Otherwise not too overbearing; just a really nice, drinkable session beer.

Feel: a bit more than thin with a normal carbonation. Goes down nice and smooth, crisp.

Overall, a nice beer. Well brewed and balanced. Crisp, fresh and clean.

Gold in color, white head
Smell of grass, hay, white bread. Pine
Taste is sharp pine bite but not overpowering. White bread. Herbaceous. Feel is super carbonated.

Poured from a can into a standard nonfiction pint glass. No date code on the can.

A: a very hazy light gold color with a big two finger white head. Nice glass lacing.

S: bready, grassy, grainy with some lemon and other light fruits.

T: Grassy up front with grainy flavors, some lemon citrus, bready cracker malt and this huge hop bitterness on the finish. Super dry. One user claimed it was more Czech than German, no way in my eyes. This is a sharp dry hoppy pils that is terrific.

M: Pretty full, prickly, dry, nice carbonation, no alcohol, perfect for a pils.

O: This is a really nice German Pils that was very surprising. No date codes on the can, but no bones about it this was fresh and freaking terrific. I'm a huge Pils fan and this was a pleasant surprise. Great enjoyable pils, grab some.
