Poured from a 12oz bottle with an enjoy by date of 8/10/17; into a Sam Adams perfect pint.
Appearance- very light gold with a vortex of carbonation bubbles that form a medium thick, fluffy white head. Lacing is minimal.
Smell - sweet lemon, grassy and floral hops and German malts.
Taste - nice blend of lemon sweetness and grass bitterness, as well as tasty and refreshing.
Feel - a nice balanced, yet sweet and bitter, light beer that is refreshing and easy to kick back with!
Overall- nice back patio on a hot day, BBQing, crusher of a beer.

Traditional optics. Aroma is pretty standard, some sopped grain and hop bud. Taste really missed for me, stale cardboard grain and some just really soured bitter hops that you wouldn't expect in a German Pils.
