Gift from Huhzubendah served in a shaker pint glass. Beer is yellow and clear, light looking, crystal clear, moderate carbonation, nice white head, but no real lacing, decent retention. Looks like the poster boy for a pilsner.

Aroma is a little weak but you can get that almost apple-y, slightly sweet / earthy yeast aroma from lager yeast. Smells fine.

Beer is light and wet with a wet finish and a thin body. It is a lawnmower beer for sure, nothing really wrong with it, no aftertaste, nice finish. Easy drinking, I'd have it again.

The beer is clear and pale yellow hued with a half inch of white head. The aroma offers pils malt, floral hops, grain. A present sweetness throughout. Noble hops and grain with a lingering sweet malt presence. A touch of lemon. Light in body with adequate carbonation. Overall, decent and drinkable. An inexpensive beer suitable for session drinking.

Served on-tap in a mug. Appears a very clear yellow color, with good carbonation bubbles and a nice white head that has some staying power, but not much. No lacing whatsoever.

Nose has nice yeast scents, malty, bready and sweet. Some pepper and lemon, not much offset to the sweetness though. Taste is similar, again very sweet up front, but then moves towards the lemon and pepper.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation levels. This all works together perfectly to make a nice beer. Overall, I've had much better, but it was nice to throw a few back and relax with the coworkers.
