Hazy straw color. Good head with nice lacing. Nice pilsner with a slight bitterness. Overall an excellent pilsner. Real Ale never disappoints.

12oz can. Pours a hazy straw gold topped with clingy white foam head. Pleasant noble hop aroma with a soft breadiness. Crisp and light, but not too light. Lemon rind bitterness upfront that's a bit rough on the palate with a raw leafiness, some grass, herbal and floral flavors. Mostly dry, but there's some malty sweetness and cereal grain folded into a bready malts. Dry, grainy finish.

A bit rough around the edges, but this is a good stab at a German-style Pils with a ton of drinkability.

Poured from the can into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Deep golden lemon, shiny, with a bit of haze to it a little, but with lots of ample rising carbonation and perfectly near spaced bubbles from the bottom. Head is bright white and fluffy at a solid three fingers. Rises with soapy retention and hang a bit with pill and some clingy lace. The body color even has a bit of green hue to it. Nearly perfect looking real impressive.

An extemely clean and very subtle classic nose. Clean malt and crisp sensing with a mild herbality. Good notes of thick bread dough and classic hinting chewy quality. Gets virtually mouthwatering after quite a few snifs.

Palate really sings. First sip fills with a bit of classic bread dough but is a bit hammered down by a controlled crisp effervescence and hop flash. Big huge lemon lime hop flavors in the mid palate, with a good rush. Chewy and crisp with a big classic density, and large almost champagne wash and dryness, but thick honey just a bit with some warmth and time to stay true to pils character.

Great flavorful and tasting pils, this one is a winner.
