Pours golden, well carbonated with a good head and nice lacing.
Very hoppy aroma. Tastes somewhat bitter almost like an IPA Pilsner.
Very clean and smooth tasting with the typical true pilsner aftertaste. Starts sweet and bready, finishes dry and bitter. This beer did not really stick out for me, but looking at the reviews a lot of people really enjoyed it

Floral bready aroma. Similar in the flavor. Refreshing and crisp, but not thin or overcarbed. Unexpectedly high bitterness is delicious and smooth and lingers pleasantly. Only criticism might be that the level of hop flavor verges on soapiness, but it is still better than the typical lack of flavor you expect in a pils.
