Thought this was a pretty good German pilsner. Pours a bright yellow with a decent foam head. Aroma was a subtle citrus, while taste balanced hops and malt characteristics quite well. Nothing overwhelming in terms of flavor or character. Just a well-executed pils that you could easily drink while still getting a rewarding experience.

Great tall branded pilsner glass holds a 16 oz draft pour.
The straw colored body supports a 1/2 inch white head.
The odor and taste are a perfect balance of hop and malt with neither dominating.
medium carbonation gives a nice bite to the mouthfeel and makes for an active beer in this presentation.

Pours a straw color. 5/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of wheat, strong pale malt, hint of sweet malt, Euro yeast, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, strong Euro yeast, hint of hops, hint of wheat, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, a pretty standard pils.

Pours a very slightly hazy yellow body with light head. The scent is sharp in some noble hop and boozy-malt character. The taste is very crisp from the hops, and provides a nice delicate finish, but nothing like other German pilseners can achieve. Pretty good, I like it.
