Not a fan of this one. The look and smell of this beer are not much different than a Miller Lite. The taste is on the bitter side. Would much rather drink a Hefeweizen. I like my beers cloudy.

Pours a clear golden straw with a thick white foamy head. The nose was grainy with subtle spicy noble hops. The taste followed with grain, cracker, bread and a nice floral and spicy hoppy bitterness. Clean finish. No diacetyl. Very nice.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 5.1% abv

Appearance- Pours a medium yellow with fluffy two finger head. Lively carbonation and crystal clear in clarity.

Smell- Lightly toasted malt, sweet bread, with hints of orange peel.

Taste- Fresh grains along with baked bread begin the flavor profile. Very dry malty taste. A bit of orange citris kicks in later, coming to a peppery finish with a touch of bitterness. Grainy throughout.

Mouthfeel- Medium-thin in body with pronounced carbonation.

Overall- A fine example of a pilsner. Not overly tasteful, but then again this is a light style characteristic of such. Good flavor blends of citris and malt however. Due to the thinness in body, makes this beer a thirst quencher.
