look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy medium golden color, yes, a hazy Pilsner, a bit unusual. The small off-white head quickly settles to a paper-thin layer. Moderately carbonated with fair lace.

Aroma: A slightly sweet aroma with cracker malt, honeysuckle notes, and a decent floral hop presence.

Taste: Begins with slightly tart malt and a decent, hop presence which is mild throughout. Midway through the taste, the malt notes become grainier. The finish is dry with a ghost of sweetness and a slight, but quite lingering bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth and pleasant, typical for the style.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant and slightly offbeat Pilsner, not bad.

The pour a deep amber color, the head portly in size, semi-creamy in texture, and a bright white color, with the remaining lace a fine sheet to cover the glass. The hop aroma in the nose, lemon like crispness, somewhat sweet and a nice malt start, lead to a middling top. Finish is brisk in its acidity, the hops flavorful in their spiciness, dry and long lasting aftertaste, a quite drinkable beer, and one I would classify as a summer session beer.

Light gold color, small white foamy head. A medium bodied German style pilsner. Nice hop signature, dry hopped so there is a nice hop aroma. Mild bitterness, slightly hoppy. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is mildly bitter and hoppy.
