A Brownish-Amber beer with a very good head and good lacing after drinking. This was the first Pilsner that I managed to get a decent amount of foam with. The smell was good with a sweet overtone and a little bread. The taste was a bit of a let-down as there wasn't much there. You could feel the beer down the middle of the palate and it hit all the sensors, but it just did not thrill me. Overall, an okay beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Good foam. Typical straw yellow in color. Crisp bubbles.

Smell: More typical pilsner notes. Musty, German hops.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Similar to smell; lots of musty German hops. Heavier on the malt versus the hops. I definitely would have like a better balance. Mouthfeel has excellent bite and definitely a hoppy spritzy-ness.

Overall Drinkability: Pretty middle of the road pilsner, especially for a European one.
