16oz can. Pours a clear light straw color with no head. The aroma is mostly grassy hops and bready malts. Hint of citrus peel and hay. The taste is grassy and floral hops along with biscuity malts, citrus peel and hay. Light mouthfeel with low carbonation and slightly dry. Pretty good Pils I'd buy once in a while.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light yellow color with a decent transparency about it. Carbonation rises at a light pace to fill a two finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. The smell starts off with a sweet and dry grassiness over top of a light biscuity goodness. Light floral leafiness rounds out the aroma. The taste was the sweet grassy dryness leading into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a smooth semi-sticky sweet feel laying down on my tongue. Overall, what a wonderful pilsener, think it leans towards the German side of the wheelhouse, but I have two more cans, so, I’m content with that. Wouldn’t mind with some bratwurst with this one!

S: Grasssy, bready malts, floral hops

T: Follows nose finishes dry. Quite refreshing.

F: Light body, high carbonation. Quite crisp.

O: This is an excellent pilsner. I wish more were like this and I wish it to be more available.

What a beauty out of the can - a translucent, vivacious straw-gold-ish yellow that bares everything on the other side of the glass. Small bubbles travel rapidly up the body of the beer. Moderate head after a gentle pour leaves a nice webbing of lace in the glass. Aroma is doughy, crackery, bready malt with a touch of floral notes. Taste is lightly toasted white bread, thick cut soda crackers, lime, grassy and faint pepper. Pleasant lingering bitterness punctuates each crisp sip. So drinkable, nicely carbonated. Light bodied and enjoyable. Availability and price (which are always tied together) stops me from having a few cans in the fridge once it's warm out.

Appearance: golden yellow in color with a one finger head that lasts a while.

Smell: very light grassy aroma.

Taste: light grainy malt profile with biscuit, cracker, some grass, and lemon zest. A mild spicy bitterness with this beer.

Mouthfeel: lighter in body. Very crisp from start to finish. Clean aftertaste.

Overall: a very easy to drink beer that is extremely refreshing and satisfying.
