Clear, straw yellow pour into a glass from a can, nice head and good, steady carbonation. Wonderful, bright aroma that is equal parts sweet and crisp. This is an excellent indicator of the flavor, which was crisp, sweet, electric and had a nice bite to it that didn't linger overlong. This is a beer made to cool off on hot days, a great beer to relax with.

Appearance: Pours a hazy goldenstraw with a bountiful head that leaves a fair amount of lacing behind

Smell: Bright lemongrass with bready undertones

Taste: Wheat bread with a bright, lemony tone building; slightly grassy through the middle but the lemon drop flavors underpins from start to finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not true to style but I love the slightly sweet, slightly bitter lemon flavor here

Pours straw color with a big frothy head. Lots of bubbles.

Smell is of subtle citrus and wheat.

Taste is more citrus and bread / wheat with a nice crisp finish.

Feel is very light and drinks incredibly easy.

Overall a solid offering and a nice refreshing Pilsner.

Not enough bite for German oils. Prima is better.

Great straw color with a pleasing scent, strong flavor, better than average German-style pilsner, light foam after pour, a real winner.
