Appearance is almost nothingness, I mean this beer has almost no color. It looks like water with perhaps one drop of yellow food coloring. What is lacking in body color is made up for with carbonation. This thing is bubbling like a bottle of freshly popped bubbly. Doesn’t smell like much, perhaps some faint grains and hay. I don’t sense any hops. Tastes like pale malt and grain husks. There is a light metallic presence. The finish holds some noble hops but not much. Dry and very carbonated. Medium bodied. Smooth some how, despite the carbonation… Drinkable if you like carbonated water.

(Served in a pilsner glass)

A- This beer has a thin white head on top a straw yellow body. The carbonation of tiny bubbles looked like champagne.

S- This beer has a smooth soft note of pale malt with a faint bitter hop note at the finish.

T- This beer has a smooth soft pale malt flavor with a sulfur note to it. The faint bitter hops in the finish are all noble with a faint alcohol tang to them. The hops flavor hangs on the tongue after each sip.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with some fizz in the finish.

D- This is a good smooth pilsner but it doesn't have much flavor, depth or character.
